Olivia Colman Needs To Be The Next James Bond, Not Tom Hiddleston

Tom Hiddleston WHATEVER. (This post contains spoilers for The Night Manager).

Posted on

So we've all seen hundreds of news stories tipping Tom Hiddleston to be the next James Bond recently.

Why? Because he's a spy in the BBC adaption of the John le Carré novel The Night Manager.

As Jonathan Pine AND Andrew Birch (spies need two names).

Oh, and his top is off usually once an episode.

That's basically the whole James Bond job description right there.

That's basically the whole James Bond job description right there.

But why are we even considering him? No disrespect Tom, but from The Night Manager alone, the James Bond title really should go to Olivia Colman.

She played Angela Burr, who was running the operation to sting Hugh Laurie (Richard Roper) from what seemed to be a grotty basement near Westminster Station.

Why? Whilst Tom was doing undercover things, like drinking whiskey and using techy eye cameras.

Olivia planned his whole mission without any resources to start off with, whilst barely breaking a sweat. She made it look easy.

And whilst Tom had a moral duty to go undercover.

Olivia explained why she wanted to get Richard Roper; it was one of the most powerful moments in the series.

Better than any stern conversation between Tom Hiddleston and Tom Hollander (who was that angry Corky man).

Plus she's also fucking awesome in this scene.

She shot a guy in a leg. NBD.
