Thread to talk about actor Tom Hiddleston
>>1000 I agree, of course the purpose was for him get some experience to look credible, people (his crazy/nonny fans) tend to forget that first of all he must act and then singing and playing
Production has the rights for 3 songs, so it'll either be a live scene where he sings all of them, or more live scenes where he sings one or the other. Worst case scenario, they won't use him but the original, and Hank3 in his stupid stubbornness offered the perfect excuse not to blame it on TH.
(But I read TH's fans are starting a campaign to post positive reviews of his performance to go against Hank3 and his fans. If it turns into a flame war that will only embarrass TH)
his fans have a suspension of disbelief degree
Extras aside, does this mean that other than TH they still haven't cast anyone else?
[...] And it definitely puts Rodney Crowell in a strange position. I’m definitely not wanting to be hard on him. But if if Rodney Crowell is the voice coach, it says a lot right there too.
Were many people believing that account was real that he felt the need to tweet about it?
Elizabeth Olsen has joined “The Avengers” star Tom Hiddleston in the Hank Williams biopic “I Saw the Light,” and will play his wife, Audrey Mae.
>>7 Well, judging by this interview, if anything or anyone "doesn’t seem very smart", it's only HWIII himself.
>>10 yes, but it's probably a good thing for the film.
well ok, we'll see
Just to be very clear, Hiddleston passed on the part three months ago, he will not be BEN-HUR
I agree, he did well
So he disappeared in a hole now?
Kind of inevitable, have you seen BBC's documentary about Hank William? Never mind the singing, TH needs to work on that accent.
Plus,his fans are in line to become extras, if they see him around he'll waste half a day taking selfies.
Err, I hope this is better than Godzilla, way better.
Tom Hiddleston To Star And Jordan Vogt-Roberts To Direct Legendar Entertainment's Skull Island
In case I was the only one who followed Legendary's panel at SDCC, the release date for Skull Island is for November 4th, 2016.
Hemsworth is also the producer for this! He is going to steal TH thunder (just kidding). Curious to see who is going to play Hank William in Hemsworth's film, imagine if he ask Hank3 haha
Skull Island is true, TH started following the director.
Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein has been confirmed to write the script.
Godzilla screewriter? Great...
Crimson Peak had a test screening, some tweets from people who watched it, no spoilers present.
>>30 haha I'm a bit worried that nobody is saying whether the film was scary or not, being a horror and all.
I notice now that the official twitter account for CP is run by a fan.
The rest of the cast-phenomenal. @twhiddleston was amazing & luscious.I c why he's so popular w/the ladies. Even GDT was fanboying.Loved it!
A fan bumped into TH in Nashville
Nothing more than OLLA and DBS it seems
>>36 she also says "booty" so...But no big surprise considering GDT interviews about it. Still, between the sauna scene in HollowCrown, DBS, OLLA and Coriolanus it's pretty much all there.
True, I forgot coriolanus white gown
Fun in the studio
My shot of glorious Tom Hiddleston @twhiddleston for @FollowWestwood & @climate_rev, with @Greenpeace #SaveTheArctic
He's really hot and sexy in this pics, my question is: was it really necessary? I mean it's a it's a greenpeace campaign
>>41 Maybe they decided for a fashion-like photo because Vivienne involvement?
I like that the main focus of the photo is on the tshirt, I mean yes as a consequence he looks very hot and sexy, but his arms behind his back make the tshirt and the campaign logo central and that's what you look at first thing, if you are not a fan of his at least :)
>>41 really? I was thinking he looks like he's hurt. And it doesn't help that his hands are on his butt.
>>43 like he is hurt? From His facial expression or his stance? Let me get another look.
>>44 nice selfie, and that was a really good speech so I'm happy he tweeted to support it. Interesting choice, the lines he quoted.
He's back in London?
>>49 Yes he is! Filming doesn't start till mid-October though.
Really liking his hair these days.
He looks so sleepy
>>51 he does and the out-of-focus photo doesn't improve the expression.
>>49 He is back in UK but maybe not London, because Edd Post wrote "outside work" but Jersey Boys are now performing in Machester, so TH was in Manchester today.
>>53 According to his Twitter and the Jersey Boys London website, Edd Post is in the London cast, not the touring company. So Tom's in London.
>>54 oh, thank you, didn't think they'd have different cast.
So Matt LeBlanc and Tom 'Loki' Hiddleston were on my flight. I'm sure Matt is stalking me as this is the 2nd time this has happened, anyway
here comes another Jim Beaver :) (said with much affection)
TH's overwork is why when we say he looks tired and older we are not seeing things or making it up to bash him. I can see a collapse in his future, it already happened once didn't it?
yep after Hollow Crown
I guess he feels the pressure, especially after Hank3 opposition.
It's not a long stretch to say that Rodney Crowell wrote this mainly as a response to Hank3 and to the country community.
Luke Evans Chats Working With Tom Hiddleston On High Rise
internet darling lols
that hat is an abomination, hopefully not the one they'll use in the film. It looks a different from the one when he announced ISTL.
Maddie Hasson joins ISTL
wow, a 19 year old to play a 19 year old, doesn't often happen in Hollywood. Let's wait for the final result, but she looks way younger than that.
they deleted that tweet, but you can see all the donated shoes here.
Has TH ever worn those shoes? I preferred last year's All Star Converse
Tweet is still there
>>70 I swear twitter gave me its tweet not found page. Well, never mind.
>>70 don't worry :) same here, probably my link is wrong
*Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston are coming to TV in an espionage drama.
The duo are to star in a TV adaptation of John leCarre's The Night Manager, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter, with WME fielding multiple offers from U.S. networks for a straight-to-series pickup.*
Well next two years will be very important for him. Time to change his idiotic PR
>>75 hopefully all of these films will get good reviews and good result at box office, of at least 3 of them I'm not so certain.
About his PR, I'm curious to see how he will promote next year.
Browsing the internet I found this 5 years old news
Are the rights to make a film different from a tv series? Or it's just that after 5 years the rights expired?
I've noticed that contrary to what happened after the announcement for Skull Island, when TH immediately started following the director, in TheNightManager case, he hasn't started following Hugh Laurie, InkFactory or John Le Carré.
And none of them started following him, nor they commented on the news. Strangely, because InkFactory right now has another film out based on another John Le Carré's book, A Most Wanted Man, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. Officially announcing this tvseries might be good PR.
When they announced Skull Island they already had a release date
Variety article is quite vague, maybe it's a early-stage project
Sorry hollywood reporter not variety
>>79 I guess, the way they mentioned their rep. and everything made it sound so official, at the very least I expected InkFactory to say something.
I see but InkFactory hasn't said a single word, that's the point
Exactly, everyone is commenting this like it's a sure thing, while to me these sources that told Hollywood Reporter might not be as official as they seem.
I even checked the twitter account of David Farr, the supposed screenwriter for this film, but nothing.
Found this, it's an entry from more than a year ago, August 2013.
but still no confirmation about the announcement.
Maybe Ivory Richard II is gonna really happen
>>85 With what we know, RichardII is much more certain. At least it was the director himself talking of TH involvement and not some Hollywood Reporter's "sources". I'm hoping the tvshow happens but InkFactory had this project in mind since last year, if it was a done deal they would have been the source of the news.
I guess the photo should represent him when he wakes up.
Oh finally, HughLaurie started following TH.
BBC confirms (a sort of)
>>90 only that they plan the series, but we already knew that from that last year article from The Ink Factory I posted.
What is mere speculation is Hugh Laurie's and TH's involvement.
>>93 don't worry, I'm curious to know what's gonna happen now
>>94 Me too, the tvseries is a good project, but it seems like they are still looking for funds so it's unclear when and if it will see the light. And if TH would be interested in doing television, Gatiss said he wasn't.
ISTL casting news https://twitter. com/ISawTheLightFan/status/519433512206602240
I suppose they will play Hank William's band members.
so JA reactivated her fb page (by her avatar and list of friends it's the real one)
>>98 Yeah she had.
Anyway I think her come back is work related. Mansell is on tour, first gig yesterday at barbican.
>>99 yes, given her job at some point she had to come back to social networks, although she also seems like she just likes social networks. And facebook makes it easier to handle privacy. I read she is also on instagram, private account.
Anyway, cancelled again
>>103 I read she has been back on fb for a week, but I only found out because it was mentioned at the bicycle site last night, otherwise I wouldn't have known, same for her instagram, Provided that's her reason for deactivating her account again, she might have just changed name, I guess she reads that blog too.
"Why does she even care..." I think after she spent a year courting fans and enjoying their attention, after BB she doesn't anymore.
>>104 That's exactly how I understood it - someone mentioned her accounts on that blog and she reacted. (Of course I may be wrong). With regards to caring, I didn't mean she still cares about fan-courting, etc., but about being mentioned.
So, OK, you decide to return to social media, a few overinvested fangirls on tumblr blog notice that, so what? Keep those accounts protected, or even don't, make them about work if you need - sooner or later they will see there's nothing interesting or TH related and will move on. Why all he drama with paying attention to them, name changing, account deactivating or whatever?
Maybe they notice she's back and start sending her death threats until she goes back into hiding?
>>105 I agree with you, on all counts. Besides the number of people commenting about her on gossip sites and tumblr, us here too if you like, it's a hundred or so, even less. And if you don't go to those sites you won't even know what they say, it's not like she is under siege or anything.
>>106 nobody did that before why they would it now? Plus to send her messages on facebook, or twitter, or instagram, you need to be accepted as friend. Who knows, maybe she wanted to check if the internet forgot her, or maybe it's unrelated and she decided to use only instagram.
>>108 how do you know they didn't? My facebook profile is friends only, it only means that other peoples' messages land in the "Others" folder.
And she probably cannot disallow messages from anybody but friends, otherwise why have a facebook (twitter etc) page at all if you plan to use it for publicity purposes.
>>109 Her instagram is private only her followers can see her photos and comment, and she only just created it so that a sure no.
Her twitter, until it was public nobody sent her hate messages, but compliments and after she came back she made her twitter private, so nobody can send her anything and nobody can see what she tweets.
>>111 I agree. The only more or less nasty message I've seen sent to her was back then when that DL person created a fake account on Twitter and said TH was using her or smth. Others were only compliments. Anyway, if I try to imagine myself in her shoes, honestly, I wouldn't even bat an eye on that or similar stuff. I mean, I think that's the adult way of dealing with it. Just do your thing, live your life, and those few fangirls will move on. If actual, serious death threats persist (in all honesty, I don't believe she received those) then contact relevant authorities.
>>110 If she deactivates her pages she can't use them for her job either, so setting them to friends only would be basically the same thing, except she would be able to network personally. I don't know what kind of messages she was receiving on her old Facebook, but she could keep that private and still use her other social media for work. That's what I do. On Twitter, people can only send you DMs if YOU are following THEM, so it's pretty safe to say she wasn't getting any hate that way. Her Twitter mentions were actually the complete opposite of death threats - people telling her she was gorgeous, etc. The only place I saw anything even close to hate directed towards her was on tumblr, but she never had an active account on there. If she hadn't been doing things on Twitter like following TH fan accounts and favoriting tweets about Tom, I think the fangirl attention would have died down and she could have carried on with business as usual.
But if she was courting fans for attention, then following and unfollowing TH-related twitter accounts and changing the name/deactivating her account is beyond lame. She could have done so much more, like "accidentally" making some pictures with him public (or just some pictures OF him. Imagine if those were nude pictures? Fans would have worshipped her). Or if she was craving media attention, she could have gone Katia Elizarova route and stage a photo op where he was kissing her cheek or something - that would probably have made it to the gossip mags, and then give interviews "denying" their relationship in a way that says "yes, we fuck". Or if she is not ready for that kind of exposure in the press but really enjoys the attentions, she could have trolled the same websites posting stories about their where she actually looked and sounded good. Instead she lets them make herself look desperate and sad (I'm not saying she really IS desperate and sad, maybe she got exactly what she wanted - to go with TH to Wimbledon and Bora Bora. So what if she also enjoys reading about him on twitter but has slippery thumbs and keeps accidentally following and unfollowing people - he does that too after all).
I have a feeling they are trying to avoid fans waiting for TH
Th with an actor kid on High Rise set.
Not a flattering photo.
>>115 in this case Mr stalba must turn off location in his tweets
>>117 Maybe acting school should start having a class on "how to best handle your social network" :)
I've just read the latest news about The Avenger2 and 3 and Captain America 3
Clint Mansell is going to score High-Rise. This is great news because he is an amazing composer.
>>120 he is also managed by JA, there's going to be much embarrassment at High Rise première. (of course I can already foresse fans taking this as a sign JA is TH's gf lols)
Well now she an excuse to follow him again (sorry I couldn't resist)
With @twhiddleston just before inducting @gretchenpeters into the Songwriting Hall of Fame.
TH for Andy Gotts
and here their characters
Rodney Crowell is the Executive Music Producer? Oh I see
>>128 yes, his facebook post makes more sense now right? ;)
>>129 Yep :) but truly, nothing serious, as a producer he only makes his job
>>130 of course, I mean, it would be strange if he didn't. Especially after what Hank3 said about Crowell's involvement as music producer.
Isn't it fun, one wacko blaming other wackos for not being allowed to pull the same crazy behaviour?
From bad to worse
Here's an article about ISTL, I'm posting the google cache link because the real one doesn't work, at least for me.
>>132 I just scrolled through her twitter, she's the epitome of deluded, over obsessed fan-girl. She's been starving herself thinner so she can meet TH, probably believing he'll fall in love with her. Like they all do.
There's a fair few just like her who are extras and have packed up and traveled to Shreveport for the duration of filming even though they're only going to be on set for a day or two. Most of them think this is going to be their big break in the movie industry. She has a Go Fund Me page too http://www.gofundme.com/onechance, only $390 to go!
>>135 I don't even know how to comment these people anymore, generally I would make a joke but with every new film set their level of delusion gets higher and more worrying.
I read (at the bycycle site) that production is screening social networks to keep track of this kind of "fans". I don't know if it's true, but in that 4ye article it says security is tight, keeping fans at distance and preventing them from getting near to TH, so that is good as it is TH not doing photo sessions.
Andy Gotts published one of the water-marked photos in hq
On the Cumberbatch bycycle site people discuss TH's newly discovered "kinkiness". Is there something I missed?
>>138 at the bycycle site or at a Cumberbatch site? Because I don't follow Ben's fan sites. At the bycycle's, it's all a troll, basically an anon sent a post saying TH had a threesome, MFF, recycling an old datalounge troll, and while it was debunked, someone else sent a pic, from a porn site, claiming the guy was TH. Then another one sent a pic of a naked guy, always claiming it was TH, also a fake.
>>139 the cumberbatch site, eggsomething, people were discussing Ben's secret girlfriend and how she will affect his image, and someone mentioned Tom. Something like "now that I know that he's kinky, he seems hot". Others responded like it was common knowledge, and I was wondering if there was some new information or rumour that I missed. If it's just an old troll, it's so annoying when people act as if those were proven facts.
>>140 Nope, just the same old troll stories. Though Tom being a bit kinky wouldn't surprise me. ;)
People take whatever Town Bike says as the truth because she swears her sources are completely verified, and anyone who dares question this or provides legitimate evidence disproving her gossip gets called a "nanny" and is dismissed.
>>141 not to speak of a couple of her anons, the NW3 and the London anons, that everyone thinks are legitimate based on nothing, because all of their infos are always posted afterwards, for example
"A fan just posted a pic with TH in Leicester"
NW3 Anon "I can confirm he is back London"
Austin Haley, ISTL actor, answer on IMDB message board
Goodness so much fawning for Abraham, couldn't he say the same without sounding so biased and brown-nosing?
Plus an actor that goes to imdb to defend a project and promote it as Oscar worthy? Really?
>>145 I figured :) If the goal he wanted to achieve was that everything is working smoothly, the film will be fantastic, he completely failed, he comes off as desperate. What a fool.
Yes, I've just read, it was announced at the special even Marvel Studio hold today, they announced many things, of all the announcement Thor3 seems the minor one. Anyway, confirmation of what TH said last year, that he wouldn't wear Loki costume for 3 years.
At the event Feige only confirmed TH and Hemsworth for the film so far, and said "The goal of the film is to take THOR to "another level of his own franchise" and "It picks up IMMEDIATELY after the events of AGE OF ULTRON". Makes sense since Thor won't be in The Avengers3 (which will be split in 2 films).
Question, how do fans know how many film TH has signed with Marvel? Isn't Thor3 his last?
I remember he said five film in some interviews but I'm not sure
Five after thor 1 so six maybe?
>>151 so other 2. From what he says in this interview though, the film are unspecified, maybe some cameos? Do these contracts have an expiration date?
Yesterday, at the Marvel event, they showed a sort of teaser trailer for The Avengers3 where Thanos was wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, since we know Thor won't be in The Avenger3 I guess Thor3 will introduce Thanos openign the way for the Infinity War.
>>146 it's his only post in two years on IMDB, hmm (inquisite face)
Also, it's not exactly connected to TH, but since he follows the man on twitter, the radio host who interview TH in Toronto last year during TIFF, Jian Ghomeshi, was fired after allegations of sexual abuse by 4 women.
>>155 Funny he interviewed Caitlin Moran last week or so and she praised him so much
>>156 so did Hiddleston, he tweeted it was the best interview he had in a long time and indeed it was a good interview. But of course, being competent at your job doesn't make you a nice person in private.
A scan of an article of the Italian film magazine Chack about Shakespeare's works coming back to cinema. It starts by talking of Kurzel's Machbeth, then it lists all upcoming projects including the news that James Ivory's RichardII is only waiting for TH to be available.
Change of writer for Skull Island, bad sign good sign? Will TH still do it with a different script?
Also this happened on set.
He really shouldn't have signed anything to this idiot.
And I find this Korean site with a bunch of old photos
"October, 2014 picked up where September left off. Tom Hiddleston, Dan Knobler and I holed up in my home studio putting the finishing touches on the Hank Williams songs that Tom will be performing in the upcoming film exploring the great hillbilly singer's life. And yes, Tom Hiddleston can sing. Quite soulfully."
>>160 Literally stupid! The lack of common sense and basic intelligence is astounding for some of these so-called "fans". There's another one here http://hiddlednlokid.tumblr.com/. She's been cast as a background extra and seems determined to use to opportunity to meet Tom. I'm sure she's not the only one who'll try and pounce on him but the fact that she's being so public about it is pure idiocy. I hope they find out her identity and kick off set.
The link about ISTL pics was deleted.
You can see them here
>>165 hiddlednlokid opened a wordpress blog to narrate her experience. I hope she is intelligent enough to just enjoy the chance. There was a girl who was an extra for The Hollow Crown and she kept a diary about it, even met TH, and that was actually quite interesting to read.
TH just unfollowed Jian Ghomeshi
He has brown contact lenses?https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=799808943413190&set=a.120203628040395.16896.100001522748549&type=1&theater
likely, either that or it's the light.
He doesn't have any flesh left on his face, so lean!
>>169 no you are right, I've just enlarged the pic and the are clearly brown.
HW had dark eyes if I remember correctly
Who can delete or add to an actor filmography on imdb? Because Skull Island is gone from TH's filmography.
But he's still listed on the movie's page: https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt3731562?rf=cons_tt_indev_cast&ref_=cons_tt_indev_cast
>>175 that is not even a news, just wishful thinking or a clickbait article. There has been no new announcements from Marvel or direct quotes from Feige about it. Honestly I don't see Whedon using Loki as villain again, it'd be quite boring, besides The Avengers team in the Infinity Wars will only have Captain America from the old group.
Plus, TH would stuck for a couple of years to film 2 Avengers films? Unlikely.
>>174 it is? Good. Well I guess imdb isn't really as official as I thought if anyone can change info as they please.
Question, do cameos count in terms of contract?
Also, does this mean that TH yesterday was in London?
"Last night’s session was the fourth of nine Saturday night/Sunday morning events the east Londoner is hosting across the <b<summer season>/b< for gig/clubbing brand Ibiza Rocks"
The interview is older
>>180 only read the part about the film =P On another site I read around the end of August, near the end of filming. Just before TH went on holiday in Spain I guess.
"Richard L Jackson: Here’s a nice picture of me and my scene mates from “I Saw The Light” along with director Marc Abraham. That’s Marc on the left, then Todd Barnett as the Gas Station Attendant, me as Boyette, the gas station owner/Justice of the Peace, Elizabeth Olsen as Audrey Mae, and Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams. A fun time in Shreveport!"
Behind the Scenes of Out Of Darkness http://torrilla.tumblr.com/post/101760486870/tom-hiddleston-behind-the-scenes-of-out-of
it is curious how he looks all the people in a so intense way apart his alleged girlfriend
the first pic, very nice!
>>184 likely because she wasn't and he didn't want her to get ideas, haha
Whedon addressing Idris Elba leaks, among other things.
Photo of beanup and TH at the charity gala last year (just for reference)
muse of fire interviews
>>188 whoops we posted almost at the same time, sorry. Too bad you can't delete posts.
The recount of his musical audition is very funny. In the 2009's video he looked less tired, less severe. And his natural hair colour looked good. What a difference 4 years make.
She just posted videos that were uploaded at the globeplayertv, I mean I thought they were public interviews.
To all our kind followers on here.Anyone who wanted to see the TH interview that has now been removed, it will be available very soon. #mof
@Aleksandraylisk @The_Globe They will be back - fear not. It's just a minor hack/glitch/error. Be patient for a few weeks. X #mof
>>196 Oh! Good luck to him. Will TH stay with Public Eye or follow Luke?
TH isn't listed under Publick Eye talent list. Was he before?
If he was then he is following Luke.
>>201 I don't like luke job with TH at all, I think it's the worst of the worst for him and his career
I'm going to try and be positive about this... maybe the problem was Public Eye, and Luke will be a better PR now that he's on his own? Maybe. I hope.
>>204 That's what I thought too, mainly because it's difficult for me to understand how much was Luke's doing, he also had a boss to answer to.
I'm not following ISTL fan twitter accounts, does any of you? is this true? I can't believe fangirls would go as far as bothering a kid to get close to TH.
*does any of you?
do any of you, bloody auto-correct
I checked the fan account TH follows and a couple of others but I couldn't find anything.
New ISTL pictures (quite) http://torrilla.tumblr.com/post/101924745375/quoyleacoilofrope-here-are-a-couple-of-shots-of
Very short video with TH in Shrevport talking to a local tv station.
Am I wrong or his voice sounds lower than usual?
Photo of Crowell and TH singing, by Rodney's daughter
So another fangirl who scored a part as an extra got booted from the production before she even arrived on set. http://hiddlednlokid.tumblr.com/
Oh, she is the one we talked about up thread.
Here's the link to the actual post about it
Couple of reports from this guy
Thomas so nice Hiddleston
60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards nomination
It's nice to have some news, but how funny, when he wasn't a nominee he attended, now he might not because he's busy working.
My dad taught this heartthrob to be Hank Williams for his new movie. Now my dad is playing Hank Williams' dad in the movie. So I think what this means is that Tom Hiddleston is my new brother. Right?
So Rodney is in the film too?
>>226 yes, from the documentary about Williams I don't remember his father having a great role in his life, so it's probably a small part.
"@ISTL_Film I can truthfully say Tom #TomHiddleston is an A-1 pure class act. A true artist and gentleman. What a pleasure."
sounds very unfounded to me.
>>229 You're right, kdramastars has a reputation for reporting false gossip or completely making things up. I would love to see Robert Downey Jr. and Tom in another movie together... but not Beetlejuice 2. I hope Beetlejuice 2 doesn't even happen. The first one is great on its own, and I'm tired of sequels.
>>230 Thank God! I agree that Beetlejuice does not need a remake.
Thank you to @twhiddleston for making today on set so fun. It was a pleasure to meet you and hope to see you tomorrow. Fun to watch you work
>>233 haha that's very professional and nice of him, as an extra having the lead actor putting you at ease and helping you out must be a good feeling. And it helps the film ;)
@RachiHiddlesxxx on FB
14 hours of shooting a live concert scene, without someone to keep you awake it'd be impossible.
Hopefully these recounts are truthful because yesterday this guy wrote Tom was mooning the audience but another said that did not happen, at all.
Two people on Twitter said that didn't happen
Very long, some interesting parts
>>238 Odd that he was drinking coke? The man can't eat, but he still needs energy. No comment about her confidence boost moment that only happened in her mind, lol
"he does swear…a lot." why the surprise?
err, is the ring he is wearing on his left hand because of the movie or...
at 100% is a prop because he wasn't wearing any ring when he was in Northern Ireland on in September when he toured with Crowell or when a couple of weeks ago(?) a girl met him in a restaurant in Shrevport and he shook hand with all her family.
And honestly, I don't know where he would find the time to get married ;)
>>240 It's most likely a prop he wore off set. Probably ran out for a quick coffee break and either forgot to take it off or decided to leave it on to mess with his fans. ;) He hasn't had it on in any other photos, so I doubt it's his... looks a little cheap, too.
Sorry, accidentally left out a word >>242 while he was wearing his street clothes during *filming.
>>244 Or maybe stir up some wedding gossip of his own to steal some attention away from his buddy Benedict Cumberbatch. :)
>>245 haha, completely forgot BC is getting married (it's not denial, I just don't follow him)
In other news Olly was in Shreveport with TH, so he left Public Eye too.
Olly has never worked for PE.
>>247 really? I remembered, wrongly I guess, him mentioning public eye in his twitter description, maybe it was Luke. So who doea Olly work for? I mean he is TH's PA but I thought he was dispatched to him by his PR agency.
PE has a very detailed list of employees and Olly has never been on the list. That's all I know
And According to his twitter the guy is not a champion of intelligence
Semi unknown TH with worn shoes
"Stars of the new Avengers film, Age Of Ultron, will quietly re-assemble in London early in the New Year to shoot some extra scenes for the Marvel blockbuster.
The first of Muse of Fire interviews with TH will be up on Monday, the second next year
these twitter challanges trend is becoming a bit ridiculous and likely ineffective
Evening Standards Awards here he comes
ISTL might be done ahead of time, first week of Dec.
And I just saw Tom Hiddleston walking in the middle of Leicester Square, among the normal human beings. WHY TO ME
waiting for pictures
"Tom Hiddleston also gave us a wave and had to rush in."
so don't be surprised if there are very few photos.
No red carpet? Very odd
here's a better one
>>263 that same twitter account wrote even Cumberbatch was quick to go in, it might be they don't want actors to be outside for too long
as I was saying, speedy red carpet.
"Ok time to head inside. After dinner we will be back with full coverage of the winners as they are announced!"
I wish he kept his curl :(
You'd never guess who is the oldest
With Gillian Anderson
Ben&Tom another one
Not one his best look
>>275 poor thing, he looks very gaunt and tired and dark hair kept like that just enhances it. Well, good luck to him.
second part to the previous photo
(that's Luke that he is hugging)
better quality photos at Torrilla
I wonder what Luke and TH were so serious about.
Haha, wonder if it's true :)
Nice! From the amount of famous actors present I assume the ESA are, if not as important as the Olivier awards, very important nonetheless. And how nice that it was Mirren giving the awards since last year he gave it to her.
There are plenty of photos at torrilla.
>>281 isn't the organization that provides the rides to the red carpet?
A jaguar no less, so there's going to be another commercial right? the previous one wasn't sporty :)
>>285 I was mostly amused by blasting music :) But that explains it - advertising reasons.
I am glad for him, nice to see him winning awards.
No idea if anyone here would be interested in watching the whole show but in case
Muse of Fire interview part 1 is available
Tom arriving in the two-seat Jag:
tmblr . co/ZAIZ3y1WzChAx
>>289 "all the rest in audi's" that was a commercial all right :)
photo with fan and/or extra
Short interview with BBC4
So, is he finished filming ISTL?
6 more days for ISTL
TH Evening Standard awards speech (short version)+interview
"he was rushed to finish his speech but he said Josie Rourke, Birgitte Sørensen, Lucy Osbourne, and the lady who did makeup :)"
"Wrap party announced. Oh boy! #ISawTheLight"
Am I wrong or he was sighing in resignation at the sight of people asking for autographs?
>>301 only in some fangirls mind the man is always happy to see them. He really has the patient of a saint.
>>303 yes, his face while he was signing, just before he turned around and saw Luke wasn't the picture of happiness. I'm curious, well mildly curious, to see if in his future project he will still do a High Rise like signing, selfies and hugs sessions or instead he will stick to ISTL's method.
"@twhiddleston in downtown this am filming I Saw the Light. Wish I could interview him! #ShreveportNews #ISawTheLight"
It's a WRAP!
"#ISawTheLight is WRAPPED!!!! watch for this one guys, it's gonna be awesome! So honored to be in it!"
Seems like Olly spent a lot of time in Shreveport
TH at Shreveport Spa
For the record, the photos with the jacket are dated Dec.2nd, the ones with the hoodie are from yesterday.
>>310 And that's just when they were posted. They were apparently taken on at least three separate occasions, unless that woman changes her shirt a lot while she's at work. :)
>>312 haha, I confess I didn't pay much attention to the lady's shirt. Was he in such a bad condition? :)
Actually I've just noticed in one of the pic he's wearing the wedding ring prop, so maybe that dates to the same day he was spotted at the cafe.
>>315 no, look at the ID, it's always me :) the link should bring you to a post by Dave Moon, where he talks about TH's stalking fans and there's also an interesting comment by someone else from the staff.
"I Saw The Light cast. W @TomHiddleston as Hank Williams, director @marcabraham, and @BradleyWhitford."
>>316 the one who says that Tom sings during fittings? I wonder what else he can do while singing
"Local baker recreates Hank Williams wedding cake for film"
"Tom Hiddleston makes an amazing Hank Williams. It’s just a joy when he comes in and makes Hank Williams come alive," she says. "He’s such a pro. He’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with. We’ve had lots of Loki stalkers on this show. We’ve had to tighten security. There are some Loki freaks out there."
We kind of already knew, but now it's official.
"We're wrapping principle photography on #ISTL today. What an amazing journey. Big thx to everyone who pitched-in & made this come to life!"
I can understand not wanting to compete with Dr. Strange, though it seems to me the real reason is the script because how do they know already that by March 2017 there won't be some other blockbuster in the way?
KONG: SKULL ISLAND, March 10, 2017. UNTITLED GREAT WALL PROJECT, November 23, 2016.
Olly (his PA) is back to london
>>327 TH should be back as well, he only has these last Dec. days before he is under conscription for Marvel, and I suppose he is going to spend the holidays with his family.
Neil Gaiman suggests Tom Hiddleston as Morpheus in the Sandman movie http://comicbook.com/2014/12/16/neil-gaiman-suggest-tom-hiddleston-as-morpheus-in-the-sandman-mo/
>>330 I also thought that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was supposed to play Morpheus. I don't exactly understand why Gaiman says Cumberbatch is out because of Dr. Strange but TH is ok, he has Loki, he is also tied up. It would have been a fantastic role for TH if he weren't already playing Loki. Playing another tragic figure with black hair...
JGL is gonna be the director and Adam in OLLA was a tragic figure with black hair too
>>332 I know JGL is directing but he also tweeted about playing Morpheus, or anyway news was the role was his.
Exactly, and in a way Hank William is also a tragic figure in black hair.
>>334 haha I forgot that one! It's too bad they didn't offer him before CP. How many chances he'll go for a fifth (if asked)?
So he's still there or it was recorded in advance?
"Merry Christmas from Rodney, Tom and Mono, the wonder dog"
Take it for what it is, but this one claims he's back in London
"It's not true. It was a joke in an interview I'm afraid RT @PickleAM: Please oh please let it be true that @twhiddleston will play Morpheus!"
"It's being reported as news. MT @shanarosenberg: I knew Hiddles as Morpheus was an off-hand remark in an interview. Why destroy the fantasy?"
Tom at LAX on December 18: http://torrilla.tumblr.com/post/105584553855/tom-hiddleston-at-lax-on-december-18-2014-hq
>>340 paparazzi photos by the look of it, he looks nice, special mention for the boots haha.
On his way home, I presume.On his way to London I presume.
Or on his way to some island in French Polynesia :D
>>342 well, of course, I was actually thinking about a cruise à la Santa Clause :)
>>342 God I hope not. I don't want to have to quit tumblr again. ;)
>>344 and allegedly, because the anon at the bicycle hasn't provided a photo yet, JA has a new hairstyle and hair colour, so we'll know if the photos are new ;)
(kidding, 7 months passed, I think it's fair to say whatever that was, it's over)
Maybe I'm just cynic but they look like a staged paparazzi photos to me
It was a long time since I saw a hot picture of him :) IMHO, of course ;) Those are nice.
>>346 >>348 I can't decided, on one hand I assume that paparazzi are a given at LAX, or at JFK for that matter, so sometimes you can avoid them but mostly you can't (when you are famous enough of course)? Because TH doesn't really do staged photos does he? (I know some fans thought the photos in Toronto were staged but Del Toro changed hotel as soon as they were out.)
Btw, how does it work?
I can see how for actors living in LA it'd be just a matter or their PR or their agent or PA calling the paps, but someone just passing through an airport, did Luke call them from London telling them "Hey, I have one Hiddleston going through LAX tomorrow, please be there?" Or his LA agent?
It just occurred to me, paparazzi wouldn't be allowed into the terminal area, they'd need a ticket and pass security, so if those are paps photos then he landed in LA from Nashville, but he was leaving the airport to be in LA.
Simply, these pictures just popped up on tumblr out of the blue. Question: do we have a verifiable/reliable/official source? Answer: No
Call me cynic again
Nothing wrong with cynicism ;) but maybe int his particul case it was a press leak
>>355 I know, you must be a "media professional" registered or able to register to that site (though I guess it will be released later on).
But, from the title, he gave this interview at LAX, so maybe he isn't staying in LA but it's a layover to do this interview before leaving the US for good. I mean why doing an interview in an airport if you are staying in the city?
wasn't he in the baggage pick-up area with a luggage cart?
The luggage cart was in the hand of an airport staff person, maybe it was for him, maybe not, TH was just holding his guitar, and in all the photos I saw of him in airports, he always carried his own luggage.
Anyway, if he didn't pick-up his luggage it's a layover to give the interview, if he did it might still be a short stay at one of the luxury hotel near LAX to give the interview.
NY Post, star snaps of the day
it seems to me he really was trying to keep a low profile and was a bit uncomfortable with all the photos, the shake of hand is adorable :) from this vid we can see a skycap with his luggage
Tom at LAX again, December 19 around 8:30pm California time: https://twitter . com/calumismybf/status/546163519628910592
Also a few of the pictures calumismybf posted on Twitter show up in the Twitter app but not in the web browser, so if you have the app check them out there. He's checking in at British Airways, first class.
Crimson Peak - Unholy Matrimony - Total Film February 2015 [HQ]
About his staying in LA, TH at BA counter at LAX dressed differently.
So he stayed in LA for what? Less a day? Maybe some job/contract meeting
>>366 yes, less than 24h and paps didn't caught him leaving the airport, so it could be about work but also that he couldn't find a BA's flight with a first class seat available on the 18th.
Who is the redhead? Is it JA with a new hairstyle?
>>368 LOL no, thank God. It's an older woman. Not sure if she was traveling with Tom but she wasn't "with" him.
Another video http://youtu.be/Agf_UJ19p1I a lot of luggage for a few clothes
>>370 And the red haired woman from the check in gate was pushing his luggage cart. Must be either an airport employee or one of Tom's people.
>>371 definitely not a travelling companion, I'd say someone from British Airways or airport staff, making sure the arrival at first class counter went smooth.
Besides the woman doesn't even pull out her passport.
He was so embarrassed at the camera and photographer wasn't he? But at least he didn't stop to sign stuff to those fans following him.
>>370 "a lot of luggage for a few clothes"
it's the HW's hat, it requires a suitcase of its own ;)
It looks like a X17 video (it still exists?) or TMZ
very short fan video at LAX
A little bit creepy
>>377 must be one of the girls you could see follow him in the other video.
Glad his curls are back.
Another video of TH at BA counter
So, TH has just added this to his twitter favourites
TH follows Gaiman so he knows that Neil said he was joking, unless of course he is catching up with his twitter feed and he doesn't know, yet. Or, he does know, but he is interested anyway...which would be bad because as we said too many similarities with Loki, who is also a character of the Sandman universe.
>>382 I still think he accidentally favorites things when he's scrolling through his mentions on twitter.
>>383 yes, there's that too, as well as adding things to favourites to later read the article, but it was more fun thinking about future projects, there's so little news about what he'll do next :)
Btw, if you guys want to read something more about Gaiman commenting on Morpheus casting, he wrote something here following an article by TOR
>>384 I personally hope he doesn't take any more comic book roles, at least not for a while. I'd love to see him in something comedic - he hasn't really done much of that yet.
>>386 I agree, but a good one, even if it's theatre.
the bicycle site's nw3-anon has now a site of its own http://nw3anon .tumblr.com/
New image of Tom Hiddleston in Crimson Peak from Empire magazine February 2015 http://blazingscarlet.tumblr.com/post/106313004355/new-image-of-tom-hiddleston-in-crimson-peak-from
>>389 new half image! Where's the rest of his face? ;)
I really hope CP will be good not just visually.
>>388 I could set up a tumblr right now claiming to be a neighbour of TH and post "sightings" of him. As long as your info adds up re timelines, locations and you don't go overboard, you can post anything about him and these idiots lap it up. They slag off that French fangirl coz she openly posts about going to places where Tom lives yet they can't wait for some anon stalker who hides behind a shitty tumblr to provide their fix of Tom info. And that bike site posts the same shit over and over again, he's an alcoholic, he's got a drug problem, he fucks everyone he works with, he's a serial dater. I'm all for gossip about the bloke but none of these people post anything new or remotely believable. I'm not attacking you for posting the link, I just get irritated by the hypocrisy of the idiots who post stuff there.
>>392 I know, I commented before that this nw3-anon was always posting sighting of him after some photo with fans surfaced. What amuses me, and the reason why I posted the link, is the stupidity of going as far as creating a tumblr blog, making it clear it's just a fangirl, while without it would, at least, have been sort of credible. (French girl tends to bring it to herself though, her young age 20y.o. doesn't really excuse her ways.)
More than CP and ISTL I'm looking forward to HR, I guess I'm the only one
>>394 I'm looking forward to all of them, but CP is the only one who already had a screening and the reports were mixed.
I was thinking, both CP and HR are likely to be rated 18+ for the level of violence and explicit contents aren't they?
I don't know actually
>>395 Not sure about High Rise, but I know Guillermo del Toro has said Crimson Peak will absolutely be rated R in the USA (which is 17+), so you're probably right.
what did I say about nw3 anon, another fangirl looner, or always the same under another name. She went from being a random Londoner living in the same area to have secret sources and infos on why TH and SF broke up, that's going to be revealed today but she must be careful or Olly might find out who she is, to knowing the fine details of the beanup's story, she also met the woman, to JA's saga.
TH, when he was in LA 2 weeks ago, with Skull Island director's, JK Simmons and someone I don't know.
>>398 Looked at that blog out of curiosity. You're right, complete BS. She probably doesn't even live in London, but somewhere in the U.S. Made that conclusion from the "cut/uncut" discussion. So many loonies...
>>400 I thought that too, though she now claims she never said that, it was a 50/50 statement. Either way, even if she lives in London, even if she actually lives in the area, all this secret information all of a sudden is preposterous. She just posted, answering to another anon who say TH this morning at the cafè that he is in London.
>>401 Lol :) I've been reading that Bicycle blog now and then, and I also remember that everything started from just alleged sightings and occasional 'Hello'. And, if I recall correctly, didn't she even say that she wasn't that interested in him? When someone asked if she tried to get his attention, or something, don't remember exactly. Now she has conversations with him over the coffee, knows a lot of people associated with him, and admits that she would jump at the first chance to be his GF. Another fangirl with to much time on her hands, that one.
>>402 Amazing how it took her 6 months to remember about all this info ;) But she is busted either way. TH's staff obviously know about the bicycle site, so they'll find out about this other one and everything she is writing. If she really goes to that cafè, TH is bound to remember who he chatted with (he has a very good memory for faces). Her worries about not spilling her secret knowledge of what happened between TH&SF so that Olly won't find out who she is (she wrote today she works in the media and she was born in the '80s) are not only fake, but idiotic since she has already given away so many fine details.
A big portion of the Tom Hiddleston tumblr fandom is extremely gullible and will take as gospel whatever "insider info" is fed to them. My theory is that the group of people that catfished that poor Victoria/Shaitana woman on tumblr last year are the same ones who fed Town Bike all of her original information. IIRC there were three people involved in the catfishing of Shaitana - a male who impersonated Tom/one of Tom's friends, a "former FWB," and the "ex" Samantha. They had an elaborate system, Skype accounts, e-mail addresses, and UK phone numbers. All of Town Bike's info showed up within a very short period of time, from a "friend," a "former FWB" and the Samantha story - all the same fake info repeated. Even though the Samantha story was completely discredited, people for some reason still want to believe all the rest of it and whatever else gets posted on Town Bike.
>>404 it's certainly possible, but there's no way of knowing it for sure, and they all sound the same after a while.
It puzzles me how fans can think this site is any better than the other, or why they want and/or need an anonymous blog with supposedly inside info to validate their own opinion of TH.
Obviously she didn't spill anything about TH&SF break-up and when asked about Sian she said she has no clue.
I find bizarre that she is so set on defending Rappaport who was, or still is, a fangirl who tried to get TH's attention, so no better than the fangirls hanging around that cafè hoping to meet TH, namely Rappaport's friend French-girl, that she dislike so much.
According to Chris Millar was in London at the donmar two days ago
Sorry "Joss Whedon was in london"
>>408 TH was supposed to be make himself available in the first 2 weeks of Jan I think, makes sense.
no, not the first 2 weeks, merely 2 weeks in early January.
I noticed that on imdb the release date for High Rise in Germany is set for September the 17th, later than I thought.
"Embarrassingly our Uber just nearly ran over Tom Hiddleston, I think that counts as a #firstworldproblem!12:54 - 1 gen 2015"
At least we know he's in London and still alive (in every sense)
Has everyone here already read High Rise? I read the book over the holidays but I don't want to spoil you with a few considerations if you haven't.
On other news, the nw3 woman after basically spilling-not-spilling the reason of the break-up between TH&SF - she said they argued...next thing you know she'll say he has blue eyes - she announced that she will do a major clean-up over the weekend "to keep it pleasant" (i.e. she will probably delete all the posts where she gave away details of who she might be). So if you wanted to have a laugh reading the highlights of her career as stalker, do it before Monday.
>>415 I haven't! Suuuch a long list of other books I'm interested in. Anyway, don't pay attention to me, I'll try to skip any spoilers. Or maybe I should push High Rise to the top. Is it good? I generally like all kinds of utopias/dystopias/end-of-civilisation scenarios.
>>417 It's a good book, my fear was that it was violence for the sake of violence, instead it's really more subtle than that and when you read a bit about Ballard's life it becomes even clearer. It's very short so if you move it to the top it won't take much of your time.
>>418 Thanks! Then I'll probably give it a try over the weekend.
Oh my :) Expert indeed :))
In case one needs to spot her again
>>420 People on Town Bike were going on about her new look but I think she looks basically the same... hair is still ombre, she just cut the pieces in front. I guess I was expecting something more drastic after all the hype. :-P
>>421 yes, the hype and agitation made me think of a radical change, but it's just shorter with side fringe. Then again, maybe to someone who had long hair for year maybe it's radical change ;)
A few days ago I was reading this article on Forbes listing actors who "are best for the bucks"
"JA Instagram anon here. Th"snowy hotel thing" was Jane's work Christmas party, mid-December, Tom was still in the States shooting or whatnot. And what's with all Botox thing? Can you not just admit that she looks damn good at this pic? And really cute too?"
"JA Instagram anon here. Th"snowy hotel thing" was Jane's work Christmas party, mid-December, Tom was still in the States shooting or whatnot. And what's with all Botox thing? Can you not just admit that she looks damn good at this pic? And really cute too?"
Sorry for the double post
>>425 what do you mean with "wtf"? Surprised that someone managed to be added to her private instagram account?
That and the JA fangirling
Is it worrying that TH has started following an inspirational quote account? Because in 2013 when he didn't have upcoming jobs he was all over Alain what's his name (just kidding)
(Well, he unfollowed that account)
I don't know if this it's just wishful thinking by fans or it's actually happening, it was posted at that nw3 anon, but I coulnd't find any confirmation on the theatre website.
>>430 No,he didn't
>>431 oh you are right, I just looked at the count, it was one down I thought it was that. =P
I can already see all the fangirls paying to become members right now.
Membership+ticket are minimum £50 not too expensive not too cheap
filming of Kong starts March 2015 in Hawaii http://www.myentertainmentworld.com/mew/film_production_P.3.html
A lot of CGI I guess
"@chelseaglaspie: Pretty sure I met Tom Hiddleston at the airport last night."
holiday? spiritual retreat?
Oh I didn't notice she lives in Shreveport. Maybe he needed to redo the singing? If he really was there, then I guess Whedon doesn't need him on set.
if it's true
Now she is saying that she wasn't the one who wrote about TH's sighting, it was the hacker.
"Wait, you said you've seen him today while you were on a traffic light. Also you ask box says "ask me anythingdl" )
They're crazy, undoubtedly
But Tom only work-retired life fuels the rumors, unfortunately
>>443 No I disagree, it'd be much worse because it'd give them more material and it'd be more difficult to caught them lying. Look at all the false stories about him back when he was tweeting a lot. At least like this nobody can say he should be more private, and since nobody knows what he's up to, when we eventually find out it's easy to tell who lied.
I'm not saying it's right, I was saying that, unfortunately, all this false rumors are a predictable consequence.
When there's nothing certain people love to babble
Lol, what a convenient hack :))
I've stop reading the NW3 blog after the weekend - nothing of substance (even if she IS a neighbour, which I am still not convinced of), just a lot of fangirling and fanbaiting IMO. Even more eyeroll-inducing than that Bike blog.
It is fun though when someone brings bits of juicier information here ;) So thanks >>441, 442, etc., Anonymous ;)
"EXCLUSIVE: Fresh off rave reviews for his turn in Birdman, Michael Keaton is finalizing a deal to join the cast of Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island. He will join the previously announced Tom Hiddleston (Thor) and JK Simmons (Whiplash).
So, I don't really track hashtag on twitter, but in the night this happaned "#IBelieveInTomHiddleston".
From what I understood, some fangirl/s found out about the bicycle site, offended in every possible pore she/they created an hashtag to prove or contest it - clever, a site a few hundreds knew now has now increased its popularity - but someone went as fare as DM Amanda Abbington about it and posted a screencap of her reply.
She wrote to Amanda? Oh jesus
>>449 the whole situation makes me cringe, from the twats who create these tumblr sites, the people who post stuff there right through to the tweets of these fangirls. All involved need to get the fuck out of their houses, make some real friends and get a life. I'd hazard a guess that Tom could care less about the bike site and the obsessed fangirls on some twitter crusade. Seriously, all of these people need to get a grip.
"Just met Tom Hiddleston and melted like a chocolate teapot"
TH started following AMC TV, I think The Night Manager is happening. Yay.
We're pleased to confirm that @hughlaurie & @twhiddleston will star in our adaptation of le Carré's #TheNightManager.
In spring, soon after he wraps up Kong, let's say Kong takes 2 months, TNM should start in May.
Tom Hiddleston said: “I could not be more excited to join BBC One, The Ink Factory and AMC for The Night Manager. Jonathan Pine is a thrilling prospect. Described by John le Carré as a ‘sometime army wolfchild with a special unit’ in the British forces, ‘caterer, chef, itinerant hotelier, perpetual escapee from emotional entanglements, collector of other people’s languages, self-exiled creature of the night and sailor without a destination,’ Jonathan Pine is the most mysterious and complex kind of British hero. It’s an honor and a privilege to work with such truly impeccable collaborators as Hugh Laurie and Susanne Bier in bringing this to the screen. David Farr’s screenplay, adapted from le Carré’s brilliant novel, is absolutely outstanding. I’m beyond thrilled and I can’t wait.”
Finally! So happy for TNM
Filming is set to take place in the UK and Europe on a major new drama series starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston
I guess the UK for, well obviously Cornwall, but also Quebec part, the European location/s for the Bahamas and Panama part, my guess is the Canary Islands or Azores.
"The engagement is announced between Jack, eldest son of Mr Richard and Dr Lucinda.—Blakiston Houston, of Gortin, Co Tyrone, and Emma, youngest daughter of Dr James Hiddleston, of Oxford and Mrs Diana Hiddleston, of Aldeburgh."
"Tom Hiddleston was at the castle in town opposite school yesterday and my friend was in tears
Cramlington, England 09:38 - 15 gen 2015"
Filming what? Bentley and all the knights on horses...hmm
>>463 Maybe a commercial? clearly not for jaguar.
"MTV's Josh Horowitz actually managed to get a few new details on Legendary's Kong: Skull Island from Golden Globe winner J.K. Simmons when he spoke to him on the red carpet the other night. It seems this movie won't only take place on the prehistoric island of the title, as the Whiplash actor reveals that it will, at least partially, be set in Detroit in 1971! “It’s where I grew up,” he told the site, “and we’re going to shoot in Detroit during baseball season, so I’ll get to go to Tigers games. There’s a lot to like about [making] this movie.” That's obviously set many years after the original story was, so maybe we aren't looking at a prequel after all? Beyond that, Simmons doesn't say much, but he is full of praise for director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who he describes as “passionate and so smart [with] such an interesting new take”. Here is the vid, which also includes a brief snippet with Michael Keaton, though he doesn't give away any details."
So Hawaii and Detroit. But maybe not for TH because Simmons says "and we’re going to shoot in Detroit during baseball season" but baseball season starts in April and ends in October, but TH will be busy with the Night Manager at some point in spring so I don't get the schedule.
Maybe "march and hawaii" news wasn't true
I was reading that nw3 anon blog and her posters were all about how not only Emma but even Sarah married into a posh family, her husband being CEO etc, and TH will do the same, and I don't really care, but google here and there and I found this, very cute.
Being a CEO automatically means that you're from a posh family?
>>469 according to that blog posters yes, apparently for them it's impossible to imagine that anyone can create and found a company and that it doesn't necessarily mean you are a peerage or posh family heir. That's why I googled him, because I wondered how they could tell he was posh.
Tom father is very rich but not posh, not at all
Exactly, and for that matter, someone can be a CEO but not the owner, or be the CEO of a medium size company so not necessarily an incredibly rich individual. But we're talking of people who believe nw3 anon is for real ;)
"London Collections: Men, otherwise known as LCM took place from the 9th-12th January"
"There was many famous faces in attendance, including LCM ambassadors David Gandy, Nick Grimshaw and Tom Hiddleston – all who have been honoured with that title by being influential figures within the menswear industry."
I don't get it http://www.londoncollections.co.uk/content/2140/Committee
>>474 unless he was a no show? What's the point of going to a fashion event where you are part of the committee in incognito?
“I’ve shot of The Hollow Crown which is I think two of them, then we shot with Tom Hiddleston where they did Henry IV, I think.” http://www.hollowcrownfans.com/cast-and-crew/luke-treadaway-interview-fortitude-unbroken-and-the-hollow-crown/
>>476 so he was up north for the Hollow Crown 2? I checked imdb and wikipedia for the list of actors but even Luke Treadaway isn't listed as part of the HC2 so little chance of seeing TH's name.
In the meanwhile, Detroit as location for Kong isn't half so certain
I guess the twitter sighting was real then?
>>481 I guess, there was one other girl on twitter that posted a pic of supposedly TH riding a horse with someone else, but it was so far away and blurry that all you could see was two people on horses. She deleted the pic now.
About the London fashion week, I have a feeling that he was listed in attendance only because he is an ambassador, not because he was scheduled to be there. No way he could show up at such a mundane event without a single photo taken.
"We know very little about “Crimson Peak,” director Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming gothic horror movie, but thanks to Jessica Chastain, who co-stars in the flick, we now know one thing: Tom Hiddleston gets down.
I posted it, though it's not really news, didn't we already know that TH's character in CP has sex scenes with both Jessica's and Mia's characters? I seem to remember reading it.
Anyway, I guess it's a good thing he ended up having only one film with an incest instead of two (no sister in the film version of HR), imagine the journalist questions "Was it awkward since you have sisters?" (just kidding, journalists would probably ask something even more stupid than that)
I think the photos are old even though she's just posting them now. She said she was doing an early #tbt (throwback Thursday) before she started tweeting them.
>>488 Can't people just write "old pics coming" haha thanks.
Wow, when I read it today I thought it was absurd, but not only it's true that many of the anon commenters at the nw3 woman blog are from CB, nw3 woman herself is/was one.
>>491 The commenters at CB, especially those who spend all of their time in the Cumberbatch/Hiddleston threads are horribly unpleasant over-obsessed fangirls with no lives or self awareness. Most of them claim they hate tumblr - especially Town Bicycle, yet here they all are, sniffing round that NW3 Anon looking for dirt. That twat Joe Spider (amongst others) always loved to take people down a notch or two for engaging in mindless gossip about TH/BC. What a fucking hypocrite. "Penny" is the same. They're all a bunch of stalkers (not that any of them will admit it) so it's no wonder they're all over that NW3 site.
>>492 I was quite surprised to tell you the truth. I was creeped out by CBs posters admitting to mostly be in their 50s and 60s and writing those things on a gossip site - if it were a bunch of men of the same age writing about an actress the words creepy and gross would be thrown at them faster than light. But after their campaign against tumblr people being over-invested and obsessive, mocking fans "reading too much" out of twitter etc. finding them all there ass kissing a woman that in best case scenario is a fraud, in the worst case is a stalker was a surprise. Anyway, to be precise, from the link I posted I couldn't tell, but from the original link, the entry that made me think nw3anon was talking about her time at CB was a submit from another poster.
>> 492 >> 493
>>494 Yes, I think she also tracked down the house TH's mother bought in Suffolk and the price. She wrote it's all public (btw I had no idea in the UK you could find so many private infos on the internet) but my question is the same as yours, why? I mean he mentioned his mother lives in Suffolk, where's the need to find her house? Or that other poster, icerose? who wrote she has a diagram or something of the Vest family and she's old enough to be TH's grandmother!
I hope his hiatus ended soon, I'm sick of this trash, I just want new red carpet/picture/appearance
>>497 sorry, didn't mean to clutter the thread. If we are lucky it's BAFTA.
I wasn't talking about you, all of you (me included) luckily this is one of the few places where we can talk about him with maturity
>>499 no worries, I know what you meant, it'd be nicer to have some actual news to post :)
Wasn't he supposed to do some Q&A as a charity for theatre today, or am I mistaken?
I hope it's true
CrimsonPeak (trailer) should drop early Feb, if not before."
With beard and moustache
"This afternoon we recorded the charming @twhiddleston for Words&Music - listen out on Sunday 22nd Feb at 5:30pm"
He looks good
Since this BBC Radio3 program will be available globally, here's the link to the programm page
"Andy Serkis, Henry Cavill, Natalie Dormer, Olivia Colman and Tom Hiddleston attend the inaugural @BAFTA Film Gala Dinner on February 5"
Some more information
Let's hope he'll go. I wonder if he is one of the well-known actors up for auction for a number of lunches and dinners.
Of course this doesn't mean he will necessarily attend BAFTA's AWARDS on Sunday.
Rodney Crowell interviews Tom Hiddleston:
Hmm, will others follow?
Is it a good or a bad sign that they are already sort of promoting ISTL?
I like the first answer
Found the answer to my own question, this "two questions" thing is something he did with other people too, so not for ISTL, not just.
>>516 me too, even if an actual journalist would have made it even more interesting by pressing him more on what he said in his answer.
>>518 or what he didn't say clearly like he goes to visit his father more often than we thought
>>519 yes, he doesn't mention it as often as he mentions visiting his mother, but it stands to reason that he would visit him as much as he visits her.
and say "overly preoccupied by social division" about London is a interesting choice
>>521 yes, as the line about his conversations and reflections with the Pacific blue sky. Ah, so much material in one answer and we'll never know more.
I liked both answers, to be honest. I have so many additional questions about the first one, lol. The second one made me smile :)
Also, I sometimes forget what a great voice he has. Or more like, when I'm watching video interviews, I somehow don't notice it, but on the radio, when there are no visuals and the entire perception depends on the hearing - wow, so mellow.
>>523 Thursday as answer made me smile at first because I almost expect him to say "it's Thor's day" ;) But it offered less hints for further questions. I'm always aware of his voice, but English isn't my first language so maybe I tend to pay more attention because of it.
>>524 Re: Thursday - yeah, me too :))
I'm also not a native English speaker. Oh well, I guess when one of my senses (i.e. sight) is at work, the others become dormant :)
"@JaguarUSA: Not tonight, darlings. The key to villainy is knowing when to strike. #GoodToBeBad
>>526 yep, the Jaguar ad wasn't on the list. And the second muse of Fire video isn't up yet. Luckily, this week we have the BAFTA gala dinner, with photos I hope, and maybe the BAFTA.
High Rise parts of an interview with Luke Evans
"Next up is a leading role in the film adaptation of JG Ballard’s dystopian novel High-Rise, which is rumoured to be in the running for a premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival."
Good! Too bad there's no event for this.
What is he doing these days? Filming bonus scenes for Avengers? Recording radioshows? Or is he on a tropical island far away?
>>531 I suppose he is mainly preparing both the role for Kong and, most of all for The Night Manager. If he really begins the filming for TNM right after Kong, he needs to do it now. As for the rest, I think we can only rule out the tropical island.
#3 Glamour UK Sexiest Man
>>527 Is there any word on when his second Muse of Fire interview will be released?
"Tom Hiddleston and Felicity Jones photographed by Jason Bell in a 1954 Jaguar XK120 on North Bedford Drive, in Beverly Hills."
"Attendees Confirmed for this Sunday’s EE British Academy Film Awards"
"Presenters and other attendees confirmed to date include (in alphabetical order): Hayley Atwell, David Beckham, John Boyega, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer, Chris Evans, Alice Eve, Phoebe Fox, Martin Freeman, Cuba Gooding Jr., Holliday Grainger, Olivia Grant, Sally Hawkins, Tom Hiddleston, Nimrat Kaur, George MacKay, Dougray Scott, Kristin Scott Thomas, Mark Strong and Julie Walters."
Always about the Vanity Fair photo, there's a vid.
"When Mr Bryant said: "We can't just have a culture dominated by [Eton-educated] Eddie Redmayne and James Blunt and their ilk," he uncorked a fizzing bottle of sensitivity and resentment and not just about acting."
"Don't judge people on who they used to be. Allow them to be who they are. See them "now". Not "then"
One of his most famous tweet
>>539 Which is why he is better off twitter, this is a line that needs context, otherwise it comes off as superficial and in many cases just wrong.
Always so skinny, but he looks good
And btw his back garden is a mess
>>543 yes his garden is a mess, but I love the iron on his windowsill
Photo of BAFTA Gala Dinner are up at Torrilla.
Who is the woman on the red carpet pics with him? Does he have a new press person?
>>546 I noticed that! She certainly seemed to be doing Luke's usual job.
Her name is Victoria, she was with him at GQ last here. she is/was Tom second PR (when LW is not around) she works for public eye or she used to it seems she's followed Luke in his new adventure
Video of his arrival
"As mentioned on @laurenlaverne's show, we'll have a cracking @twhiddleston exclusive on our site at 2pm today. Synchronise your watches."
It's probably connected to this
"Hello High-Risers. Stay tuned this afternoon for something tantalising... hush hush @empiremagazine @mr_wheatley @StudioCanalUK"
It's just a photo of TH as Laing, which is basically TH in a suit haha
"@twhiddleston nice to see you at #EEBAFTAs Film Gala, everyone seem to want to talk to you and get your attention tonight. 😄"
"#fbf to #loki aka #TomHiddleston & #FelicityJones getting ready for their close up #VFHollywood @VanityFair"
"Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston join hosts Jemima Khan and Tim Bevan at the @VanityFair and @Working_Title #BAFTAs party tonight."
I can't find the original source for this gif on Vanity Fair site, so just watch it at Torrilla
Here it is, the video
BAFTA: London Crawling With Major Rise In Parties & Events As Awards Near
During one of the red carpet interview, about Skull Island, he said he will film later this year, he still doesn't know where, he mentioned Cambodia, South America or even Iceland in summer. So probably not Hawaii on March.
He also mentioned no theatre for 2 years.
And from the way he spoke about Loki, he seems to be looking forward to when he won't be playing him anymore.
His answer about the after party, he sounded like he wasn't really planning to go.
I think he also said he is packed tight for this year, maybe some other project will be announced.
it's me or the first one is mute?
oh you are right, sorry.
this one works
A usual go to Torrilla for backstage photos at Bafta, for photos of him presenting and for photos of him at the after party also playing sax!
TH and Mark Strong presenting
He presented with Mark Strong (hello jaguar) and he he was sitting next to LE (hello HR) but that's these events are for
You'd think they could give him the right size of pants.
>>559 Could it be that he's been told to keep the locations vague so as not to attract the crazies?
>>569 in that case it was enough to say he didn't know, going as far as mentioning Cambodia, what an elaborate lie! And he really looked like he was trying to remember. Besides, if a small production like ISTL managed to keep his fans away, I think a bigger one will have even less problem.
Oh, and he tweeted to thank fans for wishing him happy birthday, and the Uniced fundraise for his bd.
Guess what GDT fans? #CrimsonPeak trailer debuts in front of #50Shades! Go see it!! Premieres online on Tuesday next week
>>572 what a good choice, no really, who is the genius that came up with this?
As for the woman Lizzie Francke,
hopefully a better quality will surface, but for now
Gothic, scary, not really kinky
Sorry I can't stop laughing
Tom looked absolutely fucking perfect. There was a clip of his dancing and then immediately cut to him naked in bed (sheet covering the good bits, sorry) kissing down a lady’s (Chastain?) stomach and lower… There were fingers caressing thighs and inconvenient arousal all around.
>>576 It's like we watched a different trailer hahaha
In the scene where he is kissing down, the woman is dressed and it's clearly Mia.
Anyway, what I expect from a horror movie it's to feel scared, everything else is a perk but not essential, especially if you don't want the film to flop.
it's a very innocent frame, I hope film has more "action" but I agree, it must be scary
from Torrilla 720p trailer
the first screencap, not his best shot.
OK, I have to get it out of my system, lol.
The scene where he is supposed to be kissing down - he's not kissing down, he's just rubbing his forehead against her stomach :)) Yes, I looked very carefully :))
Anyway, I like horror movies and love GDT, definitely going to see it.
>>581 True haha But you know, there are two different trailers, the real one and the one only showing up in some fangirls heads :)
Maybe it's better for TH if there is little going on in that sense, otherwise his fans will make the whole film about those scenes alone and then journalists will be pestering him about what he thinks of tumblr/twitter/fb reactions, gif sets etc.
So TH is at Ben's wedding, according to this.
Photos of TH at the wedding
before someone asks, the woman is another guest
What is the blue thingie on his lapel?
>>586 I think, but not at all sure, it's a little flower.
I've always thought their friendship was more PR than real, well, my bad
but I'm wondering why Tom is the only one to have high-resolution photos released
>>588 there might be high-resolution photos of others where those came from, but unless we know the source for Torrilla's no way to be sure. Or, Tom might have been the only one who strolled around giving the paps a chance to get him at close distance, while the rest didn't. (only two options I could think of)
Or Luke was the only one who bothered to call the paps
>>590 details for this wedding, as well as TH likely presence, were made public on Friday, I doubt the paps the provided the photos to the DailyMail article needed Luke to be there.
Let's see if TH shows up for the What's On Stage awards.
WOSAWARDS is on, no mention on twitter of TH attending, arriving etc.
And instead he is there!
"Onwards: Best Play Revival goes to the @DonmarWarehouse production of Coriolanus #WOSAwards"
Coriolanus also won this, Josie Rourke received the award
"Brightening their day, the award for Best Lighting Design goes to Mark Henderson for Coriolanus at the @DonmarWarehouse #WOSAwards"
Photo of Tom
"Mr @twhiddleston with the award for Best Play Revival #WOSAwards "
Tom and Josie Rourke, photo
for high-res photos, visit Torrilla
some more photos of TH from Cumberbatch's wedding
About Tom being the only one in those paps photos, this CB user tracked down the photo agency (no idea how she did it and she doesn't mention the name) and says Tom was the only one and that they were taken outside the hotel. But since the hotel is small, it's likely everyone else was staying some place else, so Tom worked as a decoy for the paps.
Tom Hiddleston reveals his theatre wish-list (by Press Association)
Two new WOS videos on Torrila
zzz, he looks so sleepy here
"Starting the audiobook of Ballard's High Rise tomorrow with @twhiddleston as reader..."
"At the #whatsonstageawards on Sunday, #TomHiddleston had to rush off & apologised to waiting fans for not stopping."
"It was a pleasure @twhiddleston, hope you enjoyed you visit to #isleofwight"
"Benedict and Sophie were married (on Valentine's Day) surrounded by their close friends and family. It was a magical day."
"Actor Tom Hiddleston refused to comment on what the day was like when he was asked about it at the What's On Stage Awards in London.
Tom Hiddleston Interview speaking about Crimson Peak, Skull Island & Hank Williams
I really hope he's right about the director for Skull Island because going by his social networks he seems an imbecile. In alternative I hope for TH they are paying him very well.
And how could he possibly have loved Godzilla?!
Tom doesn't loathe, he's an enthusiastic, apparently he likes and loves everything and everyone. It's always the same old story
>>613 haha, aren't all employees? Don't bite the hand that feeds, I wouldn't either in his place. Mine was more of a rhetorical question, because I was looking forward to Godzilla and it was such a disappointment in the script department. Maybe he loved the special effect ;)
Do I want to know what happened or I can happily ignore it?
"rewritethestars: I work in a theatre and Tom Hiddleston came in and, instead of just demanding tickets, he quEUED UP FOR RETURNS WITH EVERYONE ELSE BUT HE GOT THERE TOO LATE AND DIDN’T GET A TICKET AND HE WAS SUPER KIND ABOUT IT AND IT WAS SO CUTE THAT I NEARLY THREW UP AND HE IS JUST AS LOVELY AS EVERYONE SAYS AND I AM NOT COPING RIGHT NOW NOPE NOT COPING"
is that really? WOW
So did he get to see the show or not?
Somehow I thought this has been posted but it hasn't.
Thor 3 release date was pushed back by Marvel, no more July 17th 2017 but November 3rd 2017.
(this was probably due to the Spider Man news...you can tell they care a lot about the Thor franchise. I bet that's why TH looked so done with Loki, this postponement forces his schedule as well)
New pic and a little reminder (which I needed because I completely forgot about it)
"In Words&Music this week, @twhiddleston & Eleanor Bron read texts on memory. Here's a trail: https://soundcloud.com/bbcradio3/wm220215trail "
>>621 Haha :D To me he looks more startled than scary here, like a deer in the headlights.
Glasses!! I love him with glasses
they are different from the Top Gear's one aren't they?
They are yes, anyway Torrilla removed the picture
>>625 she did, likely all the hypocrites that elected the stalker woman as their new hero sent her angry messages about posting a photo invading his privacy (which it did, and clearly he wasn't all too happy about it, but how is one different from the other I wonder)
Tom Hiddleston reads for Words & Music Feb 22, 2015
any news from Nuffield?
>>629 so far I read that Olly is there, that there are a few fans dressed with a loki lady dress, audience is 99% female, and that at the bar they are using paper cup "just in case"
also somewhere there's a video of him arriving but I don't know where so if sb has the link post it please.
>>632 Yet despite the theatre stating this policy in an email after the fans had purchased their tickets and again tonight, we already have some idiot who believes the rules don't apply to her and has posted several pics of Tom on stage. She knew she wasn't supposed to but what the hell, right? So long as she gets all the "likes" on tumblr and loads of new followers on Twitter, who gives a fuck? Tom is over his fans because of self-entitled morons like her.
Sorry, meant to say He never stopped for autographs or photos
Am I wrong or there's a little mistake in the rules? Where they say: "Mr H. has requested that we do take any gifts and cards on hi behalf, but instead visit the website below" they meant "Mr H. has requsted that we do not take" otherwise it didn't make sense.
"he sees something of himself in all of them. With the exception of Hank Williams: he said regarding Hank’s alcoholism that he couldn’t understand that, could never see that in himself."
(there goes the drunk dish. lol)
"He spoke about The Night Manager being his next project ‘in the spring’ gave a good summary of it and seemed excited about it. He also spoke about Skull Island in the ‘summer into autumn’ and said he was excited about is but wasn’t going to reveal why it was going to be so different to the King Kong films that have come before it. He did say they are planning on doing lots of location shooting ‘head off into the jungle with a couple of cameras’ instead of filming on a lot or green-screening."
video of his arrival...it's so dark you can't see anything.
just a minor consideration, I have no idea if TH's performance ISTL will be Oscar material, but since an English won the Oscar for best actor this year, I find unlikely that the Academy will give it to another English next year too. On the other hand, a nomination sometimes is better than an actual win.
"Not interested in insubstantialand two dimensional roles on tv preferred stage roles"
>>641 very, it means the night manager must be really good.
at the previous Torrilla link I posted about Words&Music, Torrilla added a link to download the whole program
>>641 I can't believe she posted her entire pencil-written fangirlish incoherent ramblings :D I laughed so hard :)
Well, suppose we should be grateful somebody made an effort to provide some recaps at all.
I was re-reading the Nuffield recap and it's too bad there wasn't a follow-up question to this "but he definitely said that filming War Horse was one of the happiest times of his life."
why the happiest?
For once that nw3 blog proves useful, one of their posters attended the Nuffield Q&A, here's another recap
Other bits and bobs (same girl, actually she's not a girl she's a married teacher)
by the way, considering how prestigious the schools he attended are, the tuition was very low at his time. Lucky him in every sense.
He was talking about Cambridge and RADA not Eton
>>650 I know, but they are still very prestigious, private schools aren't they? He said that today RADA's tuition is 10 times more.
Rada annual fee is 9000£
>>652 I think he said 10,000£, while instead he paid 1000£ year tuition. Anyway, I was just surprised that the tuition was so low when he attended, because I thought it was already as expensive as it is today.
This is the official poster for The Avengers: Age of Ultron
If you read at the bottom the list of actors, there's no mention of TH, there's Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgård but not him.
>>654 I think Loki will be in a post-credits scene but not in the actual film. That would explain why Tom's name isn't on the poster and why he was filming for such a short time at the last minute. Either that or his role in the film will be more of a cameo.
>>655 Aren't post-credits scenes also credited? Hayley Atwell and Mackie are also listed and while Mackie's part might be a cameo, I have my doubts about Atwell's part finding a place in this film, there are already so many characters relevant to the story. It might be Whedon decided not to show it after all, the Spider Man addition to MCU changed many plans already.
Idris Elba is credited though and he filmed with TH...
Why does every fan encounter always sound like a life changing event?
>>658 Because they're fans, probably :)
It's sweet to hear that he's nice with them. Sounds like, when people are not acting entitled, demanding, crowding him, screaming, etc., he still likes those encounters a lot.
if the encounter was true.
>>660 haha, I suppose but her "he knows my name now!" sounded so silly, why would he even remember her name? :)
Rising Up - Hiddleston and Evans Go Wild in Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise - Empire April 2015
For the record the girl was leaving for italy, so if they were both at check-in that would mean he heading for Italy.
more correctly, she landed in Milan, she is Italian, so he might have too. And according to her he was travelling with his assistant, maybe.
>>661 I feel like there have been a lot of fake "sightings" recently, particularly since that nw3anon on tumblr got a bunch of followers. People either make up phony Tom encounters to try and prove nw3anon wrong by contradicting her "sightings," or they want the same kind of attention. The girl on Twitter yesterday may have been telling the truth, or maybe not. I don't 100% believe anything without a photograph or official evidence anymore.
>>665 yes you are right. To be honest, despite her excited recount, she doesn't seem like someone who would make up a story. As for the check-in, if it was the airline check-in I tend to think the destination was the same since airlines don't do check-in for two different flights at the same counter. If instead it was the security, he could be everywhere.
I think he uses fast track option, especially when traveling for work, so I rather doubt he'd be in a queue
A brand-new children’s film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry V, starring a cast of 8 to 10 year-olds from Northumberland and featuring narration by award-winning actor, Tom Hiddleston, is to make its world premiere in primary schools throughout the UK during Shakespeare Week (16-22 March 2015).
Tom's episode of Top Gear aired as a re-run on BBC America last week, but his segment was cut from the episode. It was also cut last time they ran the episode a few months ago - no Tom. Thoughts?
>>669 well if it was cut the first time it makes sense it was still cut in the re-run. As for why, do they generally show the whole episode or they tend to cut? I don't live in the US so I wouldn't know. If they never do the whole ep, it might be a matter of time. Otherwise, I have not idea.
>>670 When it originally aired as a new episode they didn't cut it, just on repeats. I've never seen them cut an episode at all before, which is why I found it strange. Mysterious.
"Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), Tom Hollander (Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest) and Elizabeth Debicki have joined the cast of AMC’s The Night Manager"
Happy! I love Olivia Colman
"Stars including Debbie Harry, Gemma Arterton and Simon Pegg are putting the T into charity by signing up to help Comic Relief.
They posed for pictures in a range of special t-shirts designed by some of fashion’s biggest names including Anya Hindmarch, Karl Lagerfeld and Matthew Williamson.
>>673 me too, I've just finished watching Broadchurch 2nd season.
New pics on torrilla!
his hair looks way darker, has the night manager character dark hair?
"BREAKING: MARVEL confirmed NOT to attend COMIC CON this year. Don't expect any announcements/reveals. "
"Morning world!! Highrise ADR time"
I hope so
So, I don't know if it's worth bringing it here (apologise in advance), but the Bicycle blog has posted this about the identity of that NW3 woman:
I hope that is not true , but if it were, Tom has to change his taste in women
>>683 Congrats to Warner, they sure know how to pick them, lol
This is going to be a bit of a long post, sorry.
>>685 Thanks, I didn't research very far, mostly because I have no patience reading NW3, but I do visit the Bike once in a while, and saw these posts today.
Yeah, so I guess we will have to wait and see how it goes :)
A still image or part of the trailer I wonder.
Two pics of TH, but maybe the second shows the descent into violence?
(Going by that twitter account, looks like it was some kind of spring preview of films to be released in 2015.)
"Tom Hidleston tout nue dans High Rise #showeb2printemps"
"Apparently the trailer (High Rise) was shown today in Paris and the reaction was very excited. That image is a shot of the trailer"

If Aure Atika is cast as Sophie as it seems then I'm very happy about it, while I'm not about that giant for Jed. She doesn't fit the description in the book, at all.
Sample of TH reading High Rise
HQ photo of TH as Robert Laing + scans of the article
Been a TH fan for about a year and discovered this board aka sanctuary of normality only recently after sullying myself with CB, bicycle site etc with increasing horror. By coincidence I found the nw3 blog a couple of days after it appeared (when it looked like the first posts had already been deleted as it started apparently in the middle with no introduction). I have vaguely kept up with it since and noted some of the giveaway signs of the fake that others have referred to above - the early sightings, the development from a random neighbour into "I've met [know?] his mum & sister", the promises of a big reveal, followed by a crap reveal about SF and then once a head of steam is built up, all this "I don't feel comfortable" rubbish and no more sightings.
>>697 Welcome :) This board IS a breath of fresh air to me, maybe because it's not overly populated - mostly just facts, info and some sane deliberation without all the craziness.
I don't know where from it originated that you can't see his windows from the street, TBH never really cared, but I think that I saw it mentioned on the Bike blog for the first time. Don't remember who said that - NW3 or some other anon.
Didn't he say summer to end of the year at nuffield?
>>699 he said "summer into autumn". He also said The Night manager in spring. So that link you posted about Hawaii as location was right, they only got the month wrong...I guess all the locations TH listed at Bafta didn't pan out?
The shooting for The Night Manager is going to be very tight for him.
Tom Hiddleston Narration in WillShake’s Henry V
>>700 Or maybe his role in SI is not so big? a supportive role? With JK Simmons and Keaton, is quite highly possible
>>702 True. Maybe Kong kills off his character haha
"Was treated to a screening of Guillermo del Toro's new movie, CRIMSON PEAK, this weekend. Gorgeous and just fucking terrifying."
"[...] Later on there will be coverage from the service of thanksgiving for Lord Attenborough at Westminster Abbey, where Tom Hiddleston, Sir Ben Kingsley and Penelope Wilton will give readings."
"Stars of the British film industry will attend at memorial service for Oscar-winning film director Richard Attenborough at Westminster Abbey later.
Lord Attenborough, who was a stalwart of the British film industry for more than half a century, died aged 90 last year.
>>706 good thing they waited till today to say TH will be attending. A church full of his fangirls would have been awful.
Photos from the service of thanksgiving for Lord Attenborough are now on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Westminster-Abbey/126708737378026
He looks strange
"We begin our ascent of John Le Carre's The Night Manager at first light."
>>709 He does look rounder in the cheeks, and his facial hair looks kind of patchy
>>712 More than "rounder in the cheeks" his face looks swollen
Most odd. I saw him at Nuffield (when he was wearing apparently the same suit and tie!) and he looked totally normal. He looks no fatter in the body as far as one can tell but where have the chipmunk cheeks come from?
Maybe he had dental work done?
"Happy #InternationalDayOfHappiness Add: 1 #HughLaurie 1 #TomHiddleston 4 #NightManager and we're happy!"
Wow, they actually went there!
"#Zermatt Switzerland. Wow! "
This HughLaurie's fan twitter account whose tweets I've been posting, wrote about how HughLaurie's wife is going to enjoy going to Switzerland and Mallorca - if true maybe when TH went in August it was related to TheNightManager.
Is Olivia Colman with him? She looks like her
>>722 I thought so too, and her presence makes sense with the part of the story they are shooting.
Back already? Admittedly that part of the story isn't very long and it can't be cheap to shoot in Switzerland.
"Last night Olivia Colman and Tom Hiddleston were in front of me in the ePassport queue at Heathrow. And HUGH LAURIE was behind me!"
Crimson Peak release dates
A photo for TNM was posted at TH's official fb and another one at bbc's twitter account. You can find both at Torrilla, they are both boring, the usual TH in a suit.
But here it says
"ICYMI: LONDON: This photo was just posted by @LindenG -vans outside. We thank her! #TheNightManager #HughLaurie "
"Photos I was asked to remove from #TheNightManager "
"Marta Torné y Antonio de la Torre, junto a Hugh Laurie y Tom Hiddleston en 'The Night Manager' de la BBC y AMC"
"Soon filming on Kauai.. Kong: Skull Island starring Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons. From Universal Pictures."
" I JUST SAW TOM HIDDLESTON AT LAX!!!!!! OMGGGGGGGGGGGG.
Tuesday, 31 March 2015
Finally, something interesting.
"Could not be more excited to announce this! // Sony Pictures Classics Acquires I SAW THE LIGHT with @twhiddleston"
guys check this account, she tweeted several photos of yesterday shooting in London for TNM.
TH showed up at Letters Live, pics here
short video of the end here
From what I could find he read 3 letters Brando, Lincoln and Geral Durrell
"@twhiddleston amazing performance tonight as Brando and Lincoln. Took us right back to the time they were written #LettersLive"
High Rise will open at Cannes accoding to Luke Evans if this story is true
>>740 I do hope so, but Luke Evans announcing something like before Cannes jury makes it official can piss off a lot of people.
"Joss Whedon Says Avengers: Age Of Ultron Has No Post-Credits Scene"
“There will be a tag,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige clarifies. That is, there will be a short, epilogue-like scene that pops up shortly after the credits start. “But there’s not a post-post-credit scene.”
"Wrapped on 'The Night Manager' - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1399664/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 … - in sunny London town! #poorpanaramiceffort"
"Oh, me? Just creeping on @twhiddleston from my office "
Sort of related to TH, not only JOss Whedon won't direct TheAvengers Infinity Wars 1 and 2, he won't even write them.
About TNM, it seems like they are about to shoot Sophie's part.
Letter Live photo
Didn't they wrap in London
>>748 I thought so too. TO be fair, she merely wrote she was shopping, it doesn't mean the shooting will take place in London. IT could also be they finished in London as in London as location, not in studio.
Pictures from letters live, bad light or he has dark circle?
>>750 In all of them or one in particular? Because while there is a sense of tiredness to his face, I only see dark circles in the second photo, but I blame it on the light casting weird shadows on his face. So glad his hair is back to its natural colour.
Third one, but you're right, there is a sense of tiredness in all of them
"Film crew are in the village filming a John le Carre adaptation.......quite exciting, but actually alot of hanging about looking at chairs and film equipment!
good, Torrilla made a group post of all the photos of TH in Devon yesterday.
Very curious to know what he has in hand
>>755 some say he was holding his set pass and some protein bar.
another one from set
new photos from set that you can find at Torrilla's, I'm only going to post the link to this one
There are more photos at Torrilla...but more here
make of her story what you wish, me I find curious she didn't take a single pic of him dancing, but whatever.
Anyway no Cannes for HR
>>762 Oh, did they announced all the nominees today? Not surprised though.
"When the line-up was announced on Thursday, there was some dismay among UK observers that no British directors had been included. Hopes had been high particularly for High Rise, the JG Ballard adaptation from Ben Wheatley, and Terence Davies’s long-gestating Sunset Song, based on Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s classic Scots novel.

Tom Hiddleston info from Sony emails’ Wikileaks
Found a couple more on wikileaks, but this is pretty much it regarding him.
"Grimsby" Co-Star list
>>770 I had a chuckle at "Bennett Cumberbatch" on the Grimsby list.
>>771 Not related to TH, but I had a chuckle at "Benedict cum batch", which also appeared in one e-mail. At least they got TH's name right :)
"A défaut d'avoir le droit de bronzer, la vue, le chant des oiseaux, et la trépignante envie de commencer le tournage. #susannebier #thenightmanager #marrakech"
"From what we’ve heard about this one, it sounds like you had to trim down a lot in the editing room. Was there any particular favourite scene you wish you could have saved?
"Lapel Pins for BBC miniseries #thenightmanager with #hughlaurie and #TomHiddleston"
"RT @Mouradzaoui :Isn't it cool to be on the same call sheet as #HughLaurie and #TomHiddelston #DoctorHouse #Loki"
the former was a photo from 4 weeks ago.
Here's a table read always in March
Funny face pic at 779 was taken at the Jamaica Inn (see name on the window). It's near Belfast, so pic likely to date from HR shoot (and see also he is wearing the hoodie that appeared in almost every photo!)
it's from HR shoot, he was with Laurie Rose children
>>778 we posted upthread about these emails, dated Oct. 2014, but it seemed to me that the project fell through.
"Neither Hiddleston's agent nor his manager were available for comment." I bet.
New Jaguar CM Th + Nicholas Hoult
"Loki was also almost in this movie
Because of contractual issues, Whedon was unable to wholly nab Loki. "[Marvel] was like, 'We can't get Tom [Hiddleston], we can't make a deal. You can have Idris [Elba].'" Hiddleston, as Loki, was initially going to walk Thor through his weird, hedonistic dream sequence. But hey, Elba is awesome, and Whedon thought so, too."
I found an additinal transcript of Whedon talking about Loki from his podcast with Empire Film here
Maybe "contractual issues" means that for the purposes of a multi picture deal, AOU would count as one movie. They might prefer to save him up for better things. See this interesting if slightly OT article about the CEO of Marvel (and also what it says about how unwilling they are to pay for the talent to have entourages etc. They must LOVE him as he gives such good value when out doing the publicity!) http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/how-marvel-became-envy-scourge-720363
>>788 My impression was also that Marvel didn't want Loki to appear in AoU and told Whedon they couldn't make the deal, so Whedon called TH to ask him directly and when he said yes they shoot the scene that Marvel later cut out.
But, the thing that doesn't fit is that if Marvel really didn't want Loki, they would never have allowed Whedon to spend money to shoot a scene only to reject it later.
>>788 That article is interesting
"Perlmutter allows actors traveling on Marvel business only a single companion. A source with ties to the CEO says he makes no apologies. "He'll pay for the A-list talent — they get to travel with their entourage," says this person."
Did TH travel with an entourage for TTDW? Always thought he was a bit more low maintenance than that.
Glad you found the article interesting. I bet the options TH signed up to when he did Thor would also make interesting reading as he certainly wasn't A list then (if indeed he is now). Didn't the filming schedule for TTDW kill off that project with Hayley Atwel he was interested in?
>>791 I think he had Luke, Olly and Amanda Grossman with him. I wouldn't call it an entourage really, or high maintenance, although while his PA and his PR agent were reasonable enough, the make-up lady a little less. But maybe TH was considered A-list so he got to have more people with him.
Torrilla posted this but the original was taken down it seems so I'm posting the link to another site, in case Torrilla i asked to delete her post
TH on set
ISTL Promo has (already) started?
>>794 I just hope Elizabeth Olsen's other secret tabloid boyfriend Jeremy Renner isn't the jealous type.
>>796 yes, but in Us weekly they mentioned ISTL, they mentioned JA too
>>797 The article implies that TH is her rebound, so he would not have been the cause of the split.
Either this is US Weekly fanfction, or it was planted by her team.
>>798 I read it as an element of the fanfiction to give to the audience,you must tell where the two lovers met :)
Jokes aside, if this is PR for ISTL, so lame.
As for JA, clearly the writer just googled TH+girlfriend and that was the last name linked to him. Even the paps in England never bothered to try to catch them together, not after Wimbledon, not after BoraBora. One more reason why I said TH can't be too happy about this.
>>799 Actually the article implies both, it says they hooked up while shooting, ISTL started in October, but also that they are casually hooking up now, Olsen split announcement happened in January.
William Shakespeare's Richard II in Pre-Production
To Be Directed by James Ivory
I was thinking, that should this Olsen thing turn bad, for example a second article where the "journalist" mentions the photos at the spa or that Olsen visited TH when she was in London at the beginning of the year, the clumsy way TH treated the whole JA's episode will make it impossible for him to deny any involvement with Olsen that would sound credible.
What spa photos?
>>804 TH went to a spa a couple of times when he was shooting ISTL, I think we posted the links to the photos here too, but you can find them at Torrilla, sometime in December.
Olsen also went to the same place once. I think some fans wrote that on that occasion they went together, maybe with the addition of Olsen's friend Rebecca and Olly, (sorry I know I saw the photos of Olsen at the bicyle site but I can't remember if they came from Olsen's friend's instagram or someplace else) and I've never checked the dates. But, you know, a gossip site could care less.
>>803 And can you imagine interviews during ISTL promotion?
>>806 A bit awkward, though maybe it's easier to defuse these things when you are being interviewed. Better it would be if the rumour goes away now. Speaking of interviews, I read about Olsen's at Graham Norton for AoU, a bit empty this girl.
>>808 thank you! I hate mentioning things without providing links, but I couldn't find Olsen's photo anymore.
Sorry to bring her up, but this still doesn't explain why JA is still following TH's projects. I mean, I get that she is following High-Rise accounts since her client is doing the score, but the Crimson Peak movie account? It's not like she is fan-baiting this time around, seeing as her twitter account is locked...
>>810 Maybe they are just films she is interested into, does she follow ISTL too? I mean, JA does live in that white block apartment right next to TH's house, Stanbury Court, she really doesn't need to go to a première to be able to see or bump into TH.
There is no official account for ISTL yet. I don't know if she is following accounts related to the movie though.
>>812 The only other possible reason I can think of is that while High Rise has to do with Mansell, Crimson Peak is because it's the film TH was shooting when she was still part of his life and she hoped to become his gf, like a memory. But honestly, I have no idea.
Everything about his love life that has got into the public domain in the last couple of years has been so weird. I read upthread about JA (and seemingly his) interactions with the twittersphere and was really surprised. And now this. If it is leaked from either team it looks really bad - the implication is that they were together when she was still engaged to someone else, and for what? A casual shag relationship? Surely the way to handle it is to say nothing at all - even if you get papped together it leaves the chronology vague. But hey what do I know, I'm not in PR.
Cannes starts today and now news so it's a no-show for HR.
On the other hand, is it today or tomorrow that we get a new CP trailer?
"Oh, shit. I read the Crimson Peak embargo release email wrong. My set report and 1:1 interview with Hiddleston will post Thursday morning."
Crimson Peak trailer #2
CP International trailer
it may seem the same, but it isn't ;)
I should say not!
Anyone know where the CP interview screen caps on torrilla come from?
>>819 There was a brief interview with Tom before the Spanish trailer.
little reminder there's should be another CP related nterview today.
"tomorrow morning I can post more from my CRIMSON PEAK set visit. Get ready for some @twhiddleston and @jes_chastain quotes. With audio."
Eric Vespe's report for CP
Halfway through the article there's a link to the interview with TH but at the moment the page is empty.
Still, even this one it's quite funny, and interesting to read, but if you want to preserve how you will enjoy kissing scenes, don't read. "Baaarf" lol
Here's the one on one interview
Collider audio file of the interview was taken down, if you haven't saved it and you want it tell me.
I see they corrected a typo in the interview (the bit about Scarlett Johansson) but it still reads wrong to me.
What is the kink in CP that they are discussing? I didn't get it. Do they mean incest?
>>826 if think it's because TH talks about romance and Guillermo instead used the word kink so the journalists pointed out this to TH because they also don't see any kink going on but he doesn't say much. Clearly the journalists haven't read the reports from fans who have already watched it so they don't know about the incest.
>>826 sorry, I wrote the journalist haven't read fans reports, of course they wouldn't, this interview happened while they were filming. Maybe the incest detail wasn't common knowledge at the time.
And the nw3 site has abruptly shut down, after a very thorough spring clean of all EO-related posts from May. Wonder what prompted that?
>>829 Looks to me like she deleted all posts from the last couple months (not just EO posts, even earlier and non related posts are gone) except for reblogs and photos, and one ask speculating about the EO story being a PR move. By the end of the day she will probably have deleted everything. I think she's doing it a bit at a time.
>>829 Just checked her blog again... posts are being removed as we speak. She started with the most recent and is working backwards, which is why the EO posts disappeared first.
She is a bit of a drama queen though, isn't she?
She posted her goodbye post yesterday morning after replying to an anon a few minutes before.
Curious she didn't just deleted her blog, if you have no intention of using it ever again why keeping it?
On the other hand, deleting all at once might make people think she was found out, so maybe that's why she is deleting like this.
Blimey it is all disappearing. When I posted initially it was only the May posts which had been removed. I thought at first that she was deleting because she had been rumbled about the nonsense she was spouting about how anons had seen TH and EO together in January and had said so at the time. I first found the blog when it had just started and my recollection is that nobody said anything of the kind - and she would have done so if she had seen them, because back then she was posting stuff about what he was wearing every day and what time she saw him. I am sure he and his people could care less about this as there are loads of tumblrs out there that aren't very savoury and they surely don't have time to police it all. Who knows. If she really does work in theatre (which I slightly doubt, along with a lot of the rest) it isn't a great blog to be associated with.
And not a wrack behind. Except for one pic and the farewell message. Drama queen doesn't begin to do justice to it.
So, what does it mean? Had she finally come to her senses or is EO's PR trying to shoot down the Tom rumour?
>>835 it means that she deleted all the posts from her blog and she won't be posting again. That's all there is to it, no need to bring Olsen's into it, there's no conspiracy theory behind it.
Would EO's publicity team care about some nutty tumblr? Especially if they planted the story, which seems not to have been denied (unlike the Renner story which was denied on Gossipcop). Probably someone at work saw it and said "oh is this you?" and she took fright and deleted it all, albeit in an over dramatic way.
"Oh yes, it's coming! Hold on to your horses! #HIGHRISE #TomHiddleston "
Torilla has disappeared! What?!!
>>839 I know, if you google the site still comes up and you can see the cache copy of her site, so everything is still there, but no direct access. She didn't write anything on her twitter for now. I guess Yahoo is to blame for it.
Why? What has yahoo done?
>>840 Because Yahoo owns Tumblr. It's just an idea, but since you can still find her posts on google it means Torrilla hasn't deleted anything, so it doesn't depend from her. Maybe her blog for some reason was blocked.
Sorry to be thick - if I google "torrillia" I get a load of links but when I click through I get "sorry there's nothing here". Is there a way still to access it?
Looks like Torrilla has been taken down by Tumblr following a complaint from Universal about that Collider interview still being up on her blog. If true it is ridiculous and shortsighted. That blog provided some of the best free publicity TH or any of his projects had.
This is Torrila's tweet about it
Now appears like it may have been TNM pics of TH eating a baked potato: http://hiddlespearium.tumblr.com/post/119160207753/our-nightmares-have-been-confirmed-got-the-photo
These photos are all over Tumblr and Pinterest. Are they going to delete every blog that has reposted them?
>>847 as you said, that's not a favour to TH. I wonder if she will go on on her other tumblr blog or stop altogether. Or maybe use another blog platform. Too bad.
Possible date release for ISTL
Just to let you know that Torrilla has been reblogging her Torrilla's posts on her personal tumblr blog http://daisy104.tumblr.com/
>>850 How is she reblogging from torrilla if torrilla was deleted? In any case I hope she stays around.
>>851 Some she is uploading them, some through her old blog, maybe using google cache, others via other blogs that reblogged her at the time.
Lovers of the old Torrilla may be interested in this strangely similar new blog which has been reblogging from Daisy's page: http://torrillaposts.tumblr.com - looks like she is up and running again. Good for her.
"It’s a wonderful experience, we’re having a good time, we’re about half-way through (filming) now.” #HughLaurie
it seems like even torrilla's personal site is gone.
No idea why.
she has a ask.fm page where you can ask her stuff though
According to her Twitter (@daisy_104) both her personal and her new account were blocked. No warning. Unclear if it was the email addy she used or the IP. A real pity. She says it's farewell to Tumblr.
>>856 in the ask.fm she said she used a different email and IP. Maybe she should just change platform. How annoying that they are doing this to someone who was merely posting photos when people guilty of defamation and stalking are free to keep posting.
>>856 >>857 I'm at a loss here.
If she used a different e-mail and IP, does it mean someone was specifically monitoring her blog for reappearance and requested it to be deleted again? Is it just Tumblr policy? Or was it someone from TH's team, or someone with one of his projects? Sounds a bit like a conspiracy theory, I know, but it's weird. I mean, she probably knew better than to post those copyright infringing pics again, right?
>>858 I don't think it's Team Tom. Tumblr has been making examples out of a lot of popular fandom bloggers lately. They're thinking that if they delete a fandom "big name" blog, it will scare everyone else in that fandom enough that they'll stop posting copyrighted information. Look at how afraid some of Tom's tumblr fans are to get deleted now, going through their blogs and removing any reblog or edit of something that might be infringement.
>>858 Probably when she first created her personal blog she used the same email and IP, so it wasn't difficult for Tumblr to find her. I don't think TH's team has anything to do with it, besides it'd be counter-productive, by shutting down her tumblr blogs she might open a blog using a Chinese social network and good luck getting that closed.
To me it's more likely that a fan or group of them told Tumblr she had another blog. It really looks like someone is targeting her.
>>859 I wonder if they plant to shut down every blog with a film gif set, lol I don't see a long future for tumblr.
>>859 Yeah, I'm getting paranoid too :) I have a Tumblr, although not actively used (not related to TH in the least, BTW). Still, it would be a pity if it was gone one day due to some copyrighted pic I inadvertently reblogged. Events with Torrilla made me start thinking about backing up :)
>>863 I know the feeling, a few months ago Tumblr sent out a notice that if you had uploaded a song or video that you didn't own, your blog might be shut down. Even if you simply shared a ling from soundcloud. I deleted everything related to music just in case. Backup is an excellent idea.
This was posted 4 days ago, on twitter they say it's from the last day of filming in Marrakech.
This is the same that said Skull Island was to start filming in May in Hawaii. Now it's August, still in Hawaii.
"Rumors Skull Island may be put off until August...just have to wait and see. #skullisland"
Yes, they finished in Morocco
"Now the rumor mill is saying Skull Island is moving to Vietnam, not Kauai #skullisland"
FWIW (and it may not be worth much) a search on Tumblr throws up a nutjob on the bicycle site claiming to have shopped Torrilla to tumblr for copyright infringement. Even the bicycle thought this was beneath contempt.
>>869 just a troll, you need to prove you hold copyright to make a claim to tumblr about copyright infringement, otherwise every people with a grudge against another blog would be able to shut it down and on tumblr that would mean every single blog.

SDCC will release its official schedule this week, for the moment there's a master post where you can read all the announced panels so far.
Legendary released its panel for SDCC. It will be on Saturday in Hall H, so no questions from fans, they'll show clips from Crimson Peak and two others. No mention of actors at the moment.
Legendary: Crimson Peak, Krampus, Warcraft (Hall H). Moderated by Chris Hardwick.
"The Night Manager is currently filming in Majorca and is due to be televised on BBC1 and AMC in Easter 2016."

couple of very blurred photos of TH in Mallorca (couldn't find the original posters she credits)
from what i read in the comment this photo is a manip
When do they finish filming TNM? I wonder if TH is going to be at Wimbledon this year. Haven't seen him in ages. Even miss JA.
>>904 when they were casting kids for the scenes in Mallorca they wrote until July, but it seems someone from production tweeted talking of until the first week of July.
Wimbledon final and semi are in the same weekend as SDCC, if TH will be at SDCC, to attend Wimbledon's final he'd have to leave San Diego on Saturday, right after the panel. I think it's going ot be one or the other.
No oscar invitation as guest.

"Post production nearly done...then hopefully festivals! I think my favourite film ever to shoot #HighRise"
this is NerdHQ schedule for the moment, no TH
and here is SDCC official program
"J.K. Simmons and Michael Keaton Exit Kong: Skull Island"
hmmm, I'm starting ot think it'd be a good idea for TH to drop out as well.
"pushed back its production start by a few weeks from the fall to before the end of the year."
so he won't be leaving for Kong in August at all, if he stays on board this means December. Now I'm curious to know when Thor3 stars filming.
"We start filming Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man around the same time, around June of next year.”"
Will he want it if MK and JKS are not on board? Suppose it depends on their replacements. I have been wondering for a while now this could possibly work with TNM on one side and Thor 3 on the other.
"CRIMSON PEAK comic-con panel in Hall H will feature Guillermo Del Toro, @twhiddleston, @jes_chastain and Mia Wasikowska. Can't wait for this"
>>923 in terms of time it can work Thor3 starts in June Kong will be done with by then, if they don't postpone it again. But it seems strange to me that 2 actors droppped out at the same time, schedule might just be a PC execuse for not wanting to be in it.
Alan Taylor about Thor2 experience.
"Taylor – who has directed numerous episodes of The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, and Mad Men (including its premiere episode) – had a sort of trial by fire with his first major big budget studio movie, Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, which he admits now wasn’t a pleasant experience."
"The term "creatively aggressive" was used in reference to me today. Pretty sure that's the nicest way of saying "difficult"."
going by that site that yep posted months ago, the location for Kong will be LA and Kauai
"Nice to see clips from Ben Wheatley's @HighRise_movie at the BFI - cool #bfimediaconference"
"After 16 weeks, four countries, river deep and mountain high...it is a wrap. #TheNightManager."
TH is one of many narrators
Unless they add something to their schedule, if TH will attend Nerd HQ on Saturday, the only slot is the Mystery Panel at 6PM.
The autograph/signing schedule added CP to their list
1:30PM-2:00PM – Crimson Peak
They don't give the specific but since it's just before the panel I imagine all the talents will be there.
TH was at Wimbledon today for men's single quarter finals (I imagine Murray's game not Federer's). He might show up again for semifinals, but he's never going to make it for the finals with that podcast so late. Oh, I'd say he was alone.
He's Olly (his PA) next to him
it's Olly (sorry)
>>940 yes, he is. I wrote he was alone because one's PA doesn't count as plus one, or does he? haha
Aside from when he was focused on the game, he didn't look very relaxed, almost tensed.
signing for fans
the hat is tragic though
Tom HIddleston guide through Crimson Peak
there is also an app or something
this is the recount of the fan who met him at Wimbledon
Crimson Peak isn't a horror but a gothic romance? So no scare and all soppy sighing? But didn't he say before that he was scared to his tears when he read the script?
>>946 You are correct, Jessica Chastain said Tom cried when he read the script because he was so scared. I think maybe he was just trying to get this woman to go see the movie - she said she didn't like horror, so he sold the gothic romance angle instead.
another photo at Wimbledon
and from ISTL set
>>947 unless of course he is a crybaby who scares easily :)
HQ version of the photo of him at Wimbledon holding the umbrella
I don't know how much footage there'll be of HallH, from what I read they didn't say much more than they said in the interviews a few months back. as I said the panel was 15 minutes long. you can read a live blog here, it starts at 2:48

I doubt the photo was taken in LA. He is wearing the same top and trousers he wore to SDCC. If as this suggests it was taken on the same day it was probably in San Diego. Or maybe he didn't take a change of clothes!
>>971 To me the trousers seem different, but you could be right. On the other hand, Jessica is wearing a different dress in her photo with the photographer and she landed in London to go back filming the Huntsman on the 15th, so she spent 2 more days in California.

A transcription of what TH said about ISTL at Nerdist podcast
The whole podcast should be uploaded at Nerdist website at some point.
13 photos from the nerdist podcast
The bicycle site posted a pic that looked very much like him with EO.
Oh well I suppose ISTL promotion is going to be fun
I also read at the bycycle that someone on twitter spotted him last night in oxford at a gas station (I suppose alone?). I can't seem to find this tweet so if one of you saw it and can post the link.
I'm baffled by how mediocre this guy's PR is when it comes to his private life. Since Susannah it only got worse.
this might sound creepy, but that chair looks like the chairs at Ginger&White.

yes it was ginger&white.

EO didn't fly all the way from the US to London, she was already in Europe, before London she went to Paris for fashion week, she was a guest at fashion show, http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/elizabeth-olsen-marilyn-moment-dress-6003542
sorry, this should have been
"EO didn't fly all the way from the US to London just to shag TH because why else she'd be in Europe"
and in case someone doubts it's EO in the photo,
"Guys, I’m really sorry but it’s her"
But why cropping first photo??
I found the gas station thing, it was ont umblr after all
Of course if it was EO with him, this is meaningful because his father lives in Oxford.
>>987 Why taking a picture of him, only him, if she was sitting in front of him?
what makes me laugh is that these 2 have known each other since at least 2011, War Horse première in NY
and then they met again in 2012 (that we know) at London Fashion show
>>990 no, you are perfectly right, it was just a matter of moving her smartphone a little. Fact remains that that's her.
My question is this: if this fails, can we then admit Guillermo del Toro is at best a niche director? and tom hiddleston is not the worst actor ever?
>>994 I don't think anyone here think TH is a bad actor. As for GdT, CP isn't his first blockbuster, Hellboy and Pacific Rim are and they were quite successful, in fact they are doing Pacific Rim 2 and if that goes well, Legendary said Helloboy 3 will happen. The difference is that CP is a serious film and not something based on comics.
The PR has been pretty dire. Nobody would be hanging around Belsize Park taking photos if her/his people hadn't leaked that story to US Weekly. Why not just keep quiet? All the more so if they started seeing each other before she formally ended her engagement - keep the chronology very vague and then this pic would just look like they got close later (if it ever surfaced, which it wouldn't as nobody would be looking)
A few more posts from that tumblr about the a gas station sighting
"JUST SAW TOM HIDDLESTON SEND HELP"
>>996 I confess to not having an opinion, I can't say they are dating or not. The man was affectionate with sian and she was just a friend, he was distant with JA and she was....whatever she was. That being said, no way people are going to forget they were filming together and soon after the film was over her engagement ended. If they really are dating - big IF there - her PR being quiet about those articles of her hooking up with different actors makes even less sense.
You know what's also funny, that he is always meeting her at the cafè near his house, a place that is like fangirls central station.
