Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

703 Name: Couch Potato : 2018-04-15 21:45 ID:nkYywd3T

Wanna see how long it takes.

>>704 That's helpful - thanks! Any particularly worth watching?

Switching up the uniform for a shirt, likely one from TNM:

Torilla pics of Hiddleston strolling among his fans in Shanghai, promoting IW. Luke is there, too. He's wearing the uniform w the Hamlet boot and his torn Nike run cap. I guess their plan is to show how popular Tom is with his fan base and avoid all spontaneous press interviews. TS is releasing the Getaway Car song about the fauxmance to coordinate w the release of IW.

707 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-18 22:25 ID:N+5QDef3

>>706 That running cap isn't just torn - the brim looks chewed! Maybe the plan is to keep the focus on what he's wearing so people discuss that rather than anything else? (He wore that misfire of the ill-fitting greige suit again in Shanghai. Oy.)

In the second set (for those who haven't clicked through yet), he's so focused on the fans that he almost gets caught by the revolving door behind him. But his fan focus isn't "extra" the way it used to be most times.

There's what I think is a rather sweet vid of him surprising some Loki cosplayers at the London fan event: He's goofy behind the set, but very focused on the cosplayers while on stage with them rather than trying to pull focus to himself. Celebitchy has a reaction (not too snarky in the article - the comments are another matter):

Tom talks about Shakespeare for quite a while during an interview for IW in China, starting at minute 6:22. Tom says that he has no plans to go back soon, btw.

709 Name: Sosorry : 2018-04-20 23:53 ID:zSl8T0x0

>>708 Tom has no plans to go back to the theatre, at this time.

710 Name: Sosorry : 2018-04-21 03:54 ID:zSl8T0x0

Article in which Benedict Cumberbatch calls Tom, Hiddlebum, and he talks about visiting Tom's house recently and seeing a Loki lunchbox in his kitchen.

711 Name: Anon : 2018-04-22 06:43 ID:vQCAZcjG

>>710 Quite a fun interview - I liked the shade he cast at the ghastly Martin Freeman, who is a right miseryguts and moaned.

Oh dear. Apparently, none of the IW cast members was such an SOB to an interviewer this weekend at the Marvel press junket, that the studio officially apologized and pulled the "the cards" (the tapes)of the interview, to endure that there wouldn't be a record. B/c Tom is one of the more well known faces in Avengers, celebitchy used his face in the header to the article, although they say in the article that it could not have been Tom, since he is so unfailingly polite to journalists as a matter of practice. The guessing game to name the rude Avenger, is on!

>>713 It's Anthony Mackie. Tom is too much of a suck up, he wants everyone to love him.

715 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-23 22:31 ID:N+5QDef3

At around 2:25 in this vid, the interviewer asks Tom if he can do an impression of one of his cast-mates. Tom demurs, saying "That's all in the rear-view mirror; I'm not allowed to do that anymore."

Which may explain why Luke has been hovering throughout this press tour.

In other news, for those of us in the US, Tom will be on Jimmy Kimmel with some more of the cast tomorrow night (Tues.)

Also a link to a podcast with Variety. I haven’t listened yet but apparently there is a lot about Hamlet in there.

718 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-27 22:25 ID:N+5QDef3

>>717 I haven’t listened yet either, but there’s a photo from it of him reading from the dictionary (to test the effect of his voice). She evidently didn’t ask about future projects, though.

719 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-28 14:58 ID:N+5QDef3

>>716 Very good article - but warning that the IW spoilers start early in it. To see it ff one doesn't want to mess with the Telegraph's paywall, it's posted here:

Apparently, Maninhat productions is going to film James Ivory's Richard II w Tom, in 3D? Shakespeare meets Avatar? WTF?!

721 Name: Anon : 2018-04-29 15:36 ID:A3rZwPke

Is this new? Maninhat had this on its website as “news” in 2012(!) and also, see this:

>>720 My antivirus antimalware filter blocked that site. hum...

724 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-29 20:53 ID:N+5QDef3

>>720 I have to agree with Anon and the article in >>721 - it doesn't really sound any closer to being made than it has for years. And Ivory's new desire for 3D probably isn't helping. That would make the production much more expensive, would require movie chains to give up 3D showings of more profitable movies, and might even keep it out of the art houses. I doubt it could bring in enough non-Shakespeare/Hiddelston fans to compensate. He should consider staging it for NTL broadcast instead.

An article about a prominent UK casting director that I found interesting: . It doesn't mention Tom (though I could see him being the 'eminent actor at a dinner..., whose opening line to [her] was: “Why never me?” '). What do you think of her theory that "acting outside your natural class is unbelievably hard, as the actor isn’t in automatic possession of the array of tics and expressions that betray background. And while you can act up a class, you can’t, or at least shouldn’t ever, act down"? It could help explain why Tom has been limited to certain role. She is casting a remake of Shogun,though, and if she's looking for a Richard Chamberlain type, we know someone who's likely available....

No spoilers; this article includes another “what will happen to his career besides Loki?” section:

Does anyone know if there any chance that the WWII serial killer thriller film, "Silent Night" is still a possibility?

Reliable sources tell me Tom Hiddleston is to play the leading role in wartime serial killer movie "Silent Night"

>>726 My apologies for the late response (darn life getting in the way). Searches just now only brought up the articles about it from 2016, and the script seems to have been around since 2009 at least. But one of the cos. involved still has it listed on their website as in development:

728 Name: Sossorry : 2018-05-10 02:34 ID:zSl8T0x0

Tom spotted on Twitter, walking in the park w his puppy, Bobby, while wearing shorts and mismatched socks for some reason. He heard some fans talking about IW and just jumped into their conversation.

That S. Sudan documentary may finally be released this fall:

>>728 Hi all! Sorry I haven’t been around - pleasures of work.

Mismatched socks photos now on Torrilla! Bobby looks very glossy and well. If these were indeed taken last Saturday, it was a very warm day in London (Royal wedding day!!) and I am mystified why Tom would go out with a puffa jacket. He must really feel the cold!

732 Name: Sossorry : 2018-05-23 15:51 ID:zSl8T0x0

Tortilla pics. Is Tom wearing new black Nike sneakers finally? How did he, as a serious distance runner, wear older sneakers for so long? Not great for ankle support. Are those new shades? Tom seems to wear his dress socks or whatever long socks he finds in his collection instead to run, instead of athletic socks. I don't quite get this...Are those new shades? Bobby is so big! Good to see him out, though!

733 Name: Heynon : 2018-05-24 18:07 ID:vsFoFSho

>>731, >>732 We’re back - hooray! Supposedly the mismatched socks are an Eton thing: Wonder if Tom thought to wear them after that book was published last month?

734 Name: Whatsinaname : 2018-05-26 09:07 ID:6LNXsSd5

>>733 what book?

735 Name: Heynon : 2018-05-26 14:21 ID:N+5QDef3

>>734 The book that's referenced in the Tumblr post I linked to in >>733 with the line about socks at Eton, "The English Public School- An Irreverent and Personal History."

736 Name: Anon : 2018-05-26 22:23 ID:gl+hNuUv

>>733 A man with very old socks!

737 Name: Whatsinaname : 2018-05-27 06:22 ID:6LNXsSd5

>>735 Ah yes. I saw the photos on tumblr before I came here to see your mention
>>733 If he did make a point to wear them, good on him to pick a walk with the pup instead of while running.

738 Name: Sosorry : 2018-05-27 16:44 ID:zSl8T0x0

Apparently Tom visited a children's hospital in London. What a worthwhile way to spend time, and it's wise of him not to build the visit into a big self-focused PR push for himself, with pics.

Apparently Charles Cumming, spy fiction author, has been hired to help screenwriter Matthew Orton write TNM 2 teleplay. Not a fan of sequels, generally. I guess the BBC really wants this to happen.

>>744 If this is the next project for TH they better get writing!

On a sort of related note, I saw that Nina Gold, about whom Heynon posted that long read article, was the casting director for Patrick Melrose, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Since he and TH are friends, I really did start to wonder if Heynon was right when she joked that “why is it never me?” anecdote being him!! I could just see them sitting down to dinner chez Cumby in Tufnell Park and him buttonholing her.....

746 Name: Heynon : 2018-06-02 15:16 ID:N+5QDef3

>>744, >>745 Not sure if it's good news or bad that they hired a second writer. Otherwise the good (for TH's employment, at any rate) news is that the project is still alive; the bad is that it won't be happening any time soon.

>>745 In reading a sample from the English Public School book I referenced in >>735, the author writes "It has been said of Eton that it encourages aspirations, with every stone imbued with the motto 'Why not me?'" I could see Tom earnestly asking that question of a major casting director. (

Tom was seen walking his puppy, Bobby! The poster casually burned TS in her tweet.

749 Name: Heynon : 2018-06-13 23:38 ID:N+5QDef3

>>748 And she burned Tayto, too (about the lack of smiles - from a man known for his ear-to-ear grins).

A compilation of Tom pictures from a BAFTA event today: at hiddlesfashion on b l o g s p o t /2018/06/bafta-summer-party-2018.html. Apparently he's now an ambassador for a new initiative for them; another good step in rebuilding his cred.

750 Name: Anon : 2018-06-14 07:47 ID:A3rZwPke

>>749 Pics of the BAFTA event up on torilla also.

Reminds me how passionately I dislike the beard. I feel it somehow makes him look scruffy even when wearing a suit. Also his hair has now achieved Beaker-like proportions.

751 Name: Heynon : 2018-06-15 01:20 ID:N+5QDef3

>>750 "Beaker-like proportions" - bwahahahaha! That's perfect!

The beard has grown on me, but it's so much better when he's let a stylist trim it. No stylist was involved with BAFTA - one of today's pictures was shot from behind, and his suit jacket is creased and even crumpled at the bottom.

752 Name: Sosorry : 2018-06-16 00:35 ID:zSl8T0x0

Tom looks great. He has a beaming smile while shaking hands w his fellow Eton alum, Prince William. I feel as if Tom has channeled his War Horse-era look. Glad to see Tom getting his groove back. If Stella could do it, so can he.
