It all started on Wednesday afternoon, when Tom Hiddleston tweeted a minute-long wordless video to his 3.5 million followers. In it, the star of The Night Manager, strolls into focus in the Leake Street Arches underneath Waterloo station. Bearded, hair pushed back like a sexy professor, wearing suit but no tie, he looked at the camera with undigested sadness. Then the word “Betrayal” filled the screen. More from The Telegraph:

Tom Hiddleston is to return to the London stage in a new production of Betrayal, considered one of Harold Pinter’s greatest plays.

Hiddleston was a hugely accomplished stage actor before making his name in Hollywood as Loki in the Marvel comic book films, and on television in the BBC’s The Night Manager.

On Thursday, 40 years after the first performances of the play at the National Theatre, the Jamie Lloyd Company announced Betrayal would run from March to June next year.

It will be the culmination of Lloyd’s successful Pinter at the Pinter season, which has seen all of the playwright’s one-act plays performed at the theatre which bears his name, marking the tenth anniversary of his death. Martin Freeman, Tamsin Greig, David Suchet, Jane Horrocks, Danny Dyer and Lee Evans are among the actors who have taken part.

Betrayal tells the story of two married couples and a seven-year extramarital affair and is inspired by Pinter’s affair with Joan Bakewell in the 1960s, while he was still married to Vivien Merchant and she to Michael Bakewell.

Hiddleston will play Robert, a role first played by Daniel Massey. Hiddleston said: “Betrayal is a masterpiece. Jamie Lloyd’s Pinter at the Pinter season is terrific and I am so pleased that he’s asked me to be part of it.

Pinter, awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 2005, is regarded as one of the finest, most influential and most provocative dramatists of his generation. The word Pinteresque – long pauses, hidden menace – even appears in the Oxford English Dictionary.

Hiddleston was last in the West End proper playing Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse in 2013 to 2014. Last September he was directed in Hamlet by Kenneth Branagh for three weeks only at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (Rada) 160-seat Jerwood Vanbrugh theatre. It raised money for Rada.

The Guardian’s critic Michael Billington, one of the few to see Hiddleston’s performance, praised the actor’s “ability to combine a sweet sadness with an incandescent fury. He suggests a fierce intellect gnawed by intense melancholy and yet subject to bouts of intemperate rage.

Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie are to appear together in new TV series The Night Manager.

Hiddleston, 33, and Laurie, 55, will lead the cast for the new TV adaptation of the novel by John Le Carre, according to The Hollywood reporter.

The new BBC show follows the story of Jonathan Pine, a British soldier who later becomes an auditor for a luxurious hotel.

Pine soon comes into contact with Sophie, a French-Arab woman linked to Richard Onslow Roper, who made his considerable fortune from weapons deals.

But when Sophie is killed, Pine goes undercover with intelligence operatives to avenge her death.



The new show marks the TV return of both Hiddleston – who is best known for appearing in the Thor movies – and Laurie.

Hiddleston’s last regular television role was in BBC Two’s The Hollow Crown in 2012, while Laurie left House in the same year.
