Prepare this intel for a time-sensitive dead drop: AMC’s adaptation of John le Carre’s The Night Manager is fleshing out its cast.

Tobias Menzies (Outlander) and David Harewood (Homeland, Selfie) have joined the cast of the forthcoming spy drama, as have Katherine Kelly (Mr. Selfridge) and Neil Morrissey (the BBC’s Line of Duty), our sister site Deadline reports.

Published in 1993 as le Carre’s first post-Cold War novel, The Night Manager follows a British solider-turned-luxury hotel auditor who gets roped into an intelligence operation to take down an internationally renowned arms dealer.

The series previously cast Hugh Laurie (House) and Tom Hiddleston (Thor).

The Night Manager likely will be a six-to-eight-episode event series, co-produced by AMC, BBC One (which will air it in Great Britain) and Ink Factory. David Farr (Spooks) will write the adaptation.

    Wow this show keeps adding so many great British actors. First Hugh and Tom, then Olivia Coleman from “Broadchurch” and now Tobias from “Outlander” and Katherine Kelly from “Mr. Selfridge”. I watch those other shows too and now even more excited for this!
