Tom Hiddleston says he’s not part of ‘Sherlock’ season 4, no truth in James Bond rumors

The Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston has finally addressed rumors that he will co-star with Benedict Cumberbatch, in the BBC series Sherlock and seemingly attempts to quell some of the James Bond links as well.

jaguar-super-bowl-ad-shot-of-tom-hiddlestonSpeaking in an interview with Tribeca Shortlist, the Marvel star admitted that there has not been any discussion between his people and BBC about possibly starring in the detective series.

“I’ve never been approached to be in Sherlock,” the actor stated. “I don’t understand where that rumor has come from. So you  heard it first, everybody: no Sherlock.”

Hiddleston, 35, has been long thought to be the perfect fit to be a mysterious third Holmes brother in the show’s upcoming Season 4.

Sherrinford Holmes, elder brother to Sherlock and Mycroft, was briefly alluded to in the Season 3 finale, “His Last Vow.” Bustle noted that, in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s tales, the third Holmes brother does not exist. It was later added by Holmes scholar William S. Baring-Gould in the book “Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street: A Life of the World’s First Consulting Detective.”

While co-creator and writer Steven Moffat have stated that he did not want to just add characters that are not from the canon but fans have exploded in interest, so expect it to have been discussed by BBC execs.

While the Brit recently stated that Thor: Ragnarok will likely be his last portrayal of Loki, but dismissed the rumors of replacing Daniel Craig as a new 007.

He said the rumors are “purely speculative and have no grounding in the truth.” The actor admitted that his role as a spy in The Night Manager probably sparked the speculations.
