Mark Gatiss: “Tom Hiddleston would be wonderful in Sherlock”

Ever since Mycroft Holmes made reference to “the other one” in the Sherlock series three finale, Tom Hiddleston has been top of many fans's lists to play the previously unknown third Holmes brother should he ever appear in the series.

The Thor star has just the right blend of eccentric Britishness, quirky good looks and on-screen intensity to convince as Benedict Cumberbatch's second sibling.

And it seems Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss – who also happens to play Mycroft in the BBC detective drama – agrees, admitting “Tom would be wonderful in Sherlock”, but adding "I’m sure but he only does movies now. What can I say?”

“I’ll ask him if you like,” Gatiss told an audience at a recent Q&A in Brazil, continuing (with tongue firmly in cheek), “Well it’s an internet rumour so it must be true. We might as well just wait and see what happens.”

Because there’s only so much promotion any one actor can do…

Tom Hiddleston is certainly keeping himself busy. From his recent turn as Coriolanus at the National Theatre to Thor: The Dark World and Only Lovers Left Alive he’s an actor on many a cast list.

But of course with more parts come more promotional tours. From red carpet events to filmed interviews and award shows, Hiddleston has answered his fair share of questions.

Not that those questions are always enough to completely hold his attention, it seems...

BENEDICT Cumberbatch can’t get over his ex-girlfriend.

The actor split from longtime love Olivia Poulet in 2010, but Cumberbatch says he still loves his former flame.

“It happened very gradually, very mutually,” he said. “We’re still very good friends. There was no acrimony. I love her, adore her, always will.

“It is a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father. I used to think that I’d get married in my mid-30s and have children. But now I think I can wait. I’m no longer in a hurry to get married.”

Benedict, 37, likes women who have a good sense of humor.

“A woman who knows that she doesn’t have to get all decked out to look good is sexy,” he said.
