They were assigned to join forces with a Northern Alliance warlord to fight against overwhelming odds to drive out the Taliban.

When Tom Hiddleston won the TV Choice Award for Best Actor for The Night Manager, he was on set in Australia for Thor: Ragnarok, so he gave his acceptance speech via a prerecorded video. Before he can get a word in, however, his costars Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba crash his speech and turn the attention to themselves. Hemsworth jokingly assumes that the award is for his performance in the Australian TV show Home and Away, while Elba has a bone to pick: “How come Luther didn’t get nominated?” he asks.
Hemsworth also admits he didn’t watch The Night Manager — so even actors are behind on their TV. Watch the clip above.
Chris Hemsworth is officially returning to the Star Trek franchise in the upcoming fourth film!
The 32-year-old actor will cross paths with his on-screen son Chris Pine in the next installment of the space adventure. The news was first reported over the weekend.
“Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father,” Paramount Pictures announced in a statement.
The remaining cast – including Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, John Cho, Karl Urban, and more – is expected to return as well.
