Tradecraft: Ben Whishaw to Star in BBC's London Spy
Last February we heard that BBC Two had commissioned a five episode spy series from Ian Fleming Steel Dagger winner Tom Rob Smith (Child 44) called London Spy. If it wasn't already among the most promising upcoming spy television, it certainly is now, because The Hollywood Reporter reports that Q himself, the great Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, The Hour), has signed on to star! Whishaw will play Danny, a "hedonistic romantic" drawn into the dangerous world of espionage when his new boyfriend, Alex, disappears. The drama starts filming next month, with further casting expected to be announced soon. Then, in December, Whishaw begins filming Bond 24.
