Tom Holland’s Marvel box office bonus sent to Tom Hollander

In an unexpected twist, British actor Tom Hollander, renowned for his roles in Pride & Prejudice and The Night Manager, found himself on the receiving end of a colossal bonus meant for the famed Spider-Man, Tom Holland, reports. The amusing revelation unfolded on Late Night With Seth Meyers, where Hollander detailed the embarrassing mix-up, according to the outlet.

Amidst enjoying a theatrical performance, Hollander, 56, checked his emails during intermission, only to discover a jaw-dropping payment advice slip for an Avengers bonus. Perplexed, he acknowledged, “I don’t think I’m in ‘The Avengers.'” The realisation hit hard as he grasped the astronomical seven-figure sum, a first box office bonus for the 27-year-old Spider-Man star.

The mishap underscored the stark contrast in their earnings, leaving Hollander’s initial smugness swiftly dissipating. Reflecting on the challenges of sharing a name with the younger actor, he admitted to regular instances of being mistaken for Tom Holland in non-visual contexts, particularly during interactions with utility companies.
