>>950 Wouldn't be the first time. Unless he was there for a photoshoot or a commercial.

Is it Hank Williams style?

954 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-03 18:38 ID:KPW+BLFn

I guess, though if you look at one of the few photos of Hank William SR. without a hat, not really. If anything, he looks more similar to Hank William JR.

955 Name: yep : 2014-09-03 19:13 ID:0d6ACeeb

>>952 he looks square! Probably a photoshoot I think

956 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-04 06:03 ID:zIWZ/l7a

Confirmation that he is back in London

>>956 I don't see how his hair is any different.

958 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-04 12:01 ID:zIWZ/l7a

In Mallorca it was surely shortened at the side while kept long above, you can see the difference with this photo (HR wrap-up party)

I think the difference is that in Mallorca it was styled à la '80s hence that squared look. If left normal, it probably looks the same as, for example, in Cannes last year.

Tom was on a flight to New York yesterday:

Headed to Louisania for ISTL or to auditions? Please not Ben-Hur.

961 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-06 07:12 ID:yfnZeh9T

I was so focused on film I forgot there's also the US Open finals this Sunday.

962 Name: anonsy : 2014-09-06 10:00 ID:ZO0EoeLF

I figured he was probably headed for IStL preparation, like music rehearsals or something, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if he went to the US Open too.

963 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-06 10:45 ID:fKTGcHRj

>>949 He deleted it from favorites again, by the way. Is it really possible he still does it by accident? Or is it his way of drawing attention to something? If so, why not just retweet it? Or does he favorite something, then gets bored with it and deletes it?

964 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-06 11:25 ID:yfnZeh9T

I think most of the times it's an honest mistake, I don't think it's for attention because a tweet from him would achieve that and with better results. So either it was a mistake or likely he uses favourites the way many people do: to keep track of things you want to read or watch later and once you do you delete them. He probably thinks that stands out less because, except for his hard core fans, to keep track of someone's favourites you need to go to their profile page.

965 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-07 06:57 ID:iBJcHVMR

Well ISTL is happening and he is in the US for it.

And he performed at the Wheatland Music Festival with Rodney Crowell.

Oh well

967 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 08:55 ID:fKTGcHRj

I'm afraid to look. How is his singing?

968 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-07 09:07 ID:iBJcHVMR

>>967 like usual, if all he needed to improve his singing was practice, it would have happened a long time ago. I can't judge the southern accent.

969 Name: nonny : 2014-09-07 15:24 ID:qqCYQB+/

It's pretty bad. Him trying to get that country tone makes his weak voice sound even worse. He still doesn't have the tone, either. He needs to dig deeper.

970 Name: yep : 2014-09-07 17:09 ID:0d6ACeeb

He looks so happy in festival pictures. I guess he honestly thinks it's the role of his life. Unfortunately my feelings about this film are worse and worse

971 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 17:33 ID:0d6ACeeb

Other rumors from an italian newspaper. James Ivory was at venice film festival that's what he said in a interview
"The next one is for 2015: Richard II by Shakespeare, “less often made than Richard III, but very interesting: we are currently waiting for Tom Hiddleston, the protagonist. He did Coriolanus in theater in London and then three films one after the other. After that there is my movie"

(I'm italian her translation is correct)

972 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 17:42 ID:fKTGcHRj

I liked it, but it's probably just my bad taste and poor knowledge of country music. Anyway, I think he will record his performances for the film in studio, and it won't be that bad.

>>971 He probably said "we're currently waiting for the protagonist, he's now busy doing Shakespeare on stage, and after that there is my movie" meaning Cumberbatch, and the journalist just filled in the blanks with Hiddleston.

973 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 17:46 ID:0d6ACeeb

Cumberbatch is gonna play Richard III for hollow crown not the second

974 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-07 17:58 ID:iBJcHVMR

I wish him well, but I hope his happiness is due to him having the chance to sing and play live before a crowd, besides getting a role as musician.

I share your pessimism about this film though, and his singing has little to do with it, from what I read the director/writer and producer don't have a great resumé, and this is TH's first film as sole lead. Bad signs everywhere.

975 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-07 18:04 ID:iBJcHVMR

www.corriere. it/cultura/14_settembre_05/james-ivory-venezia-mi-ha-insegnato-l-ingenuita-0e045376-34f0-11e4-8bde-13a5c0a12f77.shtml

Il prossimo è per il 2015: Riccardo II di Shakespeare, «meno visto del Riccardo III , molto interessante: al momento stiamo aspettando Tom Hiddleston, il protagonista. Sta facendo Coriolano in teatro a Londra e poi tre film uno dopo l’altro. Dopo, c’è in programma il mio».

>>972 (I studied Italian) Ivory said TH, it's among quotes so it's Ivory's words not the journalist's (who should have translated better because that "Sta facendo" is just wrong). Also this is not some gossip magazine, it's a newspaper so it's reliable.

Difficult to beat BenWhishaw's but happy for him.

976 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 18:14 ID:0d6ACeeb

>>975 you're right, tense is wrong. But at least she's not distorted the meaning

977 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 18:41 ID:fKTGcHRj

Okay, I'm lost. Does it mean he's doing Richard II on stage? Or are they doing another hollow crown Richard II movie with Hiddleston? It just doesn't make any sense.

978 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 18:46 ID:0d6ACeeb

No, James Ivory wants to make a film about Richard II, not hollow crown related

979 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-07 18:47 ID:fKTGcHRj

>>974 But it's good in a way, it sets the expectations low, and even if the movie turns out to be a flop, at least it will be a minor flop, and if does a great job with HW, he will get the praise, and the writer/director/producer will get the blame. Worse if they decide to make it big and it flops à la Fifth Estate.

980 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-07 18:54 ID:iBJcHVMR

Not on stage or part of the Hollow Crown series, a stand alone film. In the interview Ivory is talking about how he doesn't think it's impossible to make a good movie out of a book and he says that his next will be Richard II, he plans to film it digitally (he also says that Downtown abbey is awful haha).
At the end of the article, it says again he will shoot Richard II next year and even if his usual scrip writer, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, passed away last year and his long-time producer Ismail Merchant won't be with him, the rest of his team will be the same.

Too bad it doesn't say where he plans to shoot, but I imagine the UK.Also, yay, no Ben-Hur.

981 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-07 18:55 ID:iBJcHVMR

>>979 true.

983 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-08 06:03 ID:IWH91Tlc

"amazing rendition" "impressive singing abilities"?!
Did Luke write this?

So he performed on Sunday too. Does he plan to tour all month?

984 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-08 08:49 ID:IWH91Tlc

collective post of videos of TH singing at the festival

985 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-08 09:54 ID:6VxcnFrp

TH has said more than once that he's a exhibitionist. Probably he enjoys this so much, look at his smile

986 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-08 12:15 ID:IWH91Tlc

Like he said in one of the videos, it probably won't happen to him again, so he enjoys it, boos included.

This guy has many short video of his meeting with TH at the festival

987 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-08 12:16 ID:IWH91Tlc

Tom has been living with Rodney Crowell in preparation for his upcoming role as Hank Williams. Just so happens that Rodney was performing at the Wheatland Music Festival in Remus, Michigan this weekend and Tom tagged along with to practice performing. Grant and I were watching another performer, Sarah Jarosz from the “backstage” area. Just so happens that Tom was watching as well. He took a seat next to Grant and I and had a chat with Grant about his musical background and the role. He even talked to us after to see how he did on stage. He’s such a genuinely nice person.

989 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-09 07:17 ID:fKTGcHRj

Sounds like sour grapes.

990 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-09 07:25 ID:piLCFBR9

He is not letting go of this is he?I thought after saying he didn't agree with the casting he made peace with it.

991 Name: yep : 2014-09-09 11:27 ID:JGzXBeJt

How boring

992 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-09 11:58 ID:piLCFBR9

Oh don't let this awful cap be a replacement for the blue one.

Hmm, are those caps encouraging hunting of deers?

993 Name: nonny : 2014-09-09 12:36 ID:zrgdhLtv

>>992 yes they are. I come from an area where deer hunting is extremely popular; no one would bat an eye at that hat (very hicky though). I don't hunt (don't think I could ever shoot one), but I understand why it is needed. If not, the deer population would never be in check, and we would be hitting them with our cars every time we drove. Not fun. xD

994 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-09 12:51 ID:piLCFBR9

>>993 No I get it, even in my country they allow selective hunting to control the population. But from a PR point of view, not so smart, and the hat is distasteful.

995 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-09-09 13:11 ID:FDDmy62p

Oh God, I really feel sorry for the poor guy. He cannot even wear a random hat without being judged for bad PR move; and yet when he dresses in a way that suggests that he (or someone else) put some thought into the clothing, he's criticized for lack of spontaneity and for his fake PR-created persona.

996 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-09 13:27 ID:piLCFBR9

Have you just finished reading some other site to get so defensive over nothing? I don't remember ever saying he lacks spontaneity or he has a PR-created person in this thread.

He is doing PR for ISTL right now, it's not like he is touring just for training, so he is in the public eye and it's my understanding that animal activists are especially vocal in the US. That's all I meant.

997 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-09 14:53 ID:piLCFBR9

Anyway, TH is in Nashville now.

998 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-09 15:02 ID:piLCFBR9

[...] According to published reports, production for “I Saw the Light” begins in October in Louisiana, and Ball is confident the British-born Hiddleston will shine. “He’s a pro; he’ll deliver,” Ball said, adding that it isn’t clear whether the actor will do the singing in the movie.

love the photo

999 Name: yep : 2014-09-10 10:06 ID:JGzXBeJt

Someone has noticed (I can't remenber where) that his guitar wasn't even jacked in, Rodney guitar was, quite odd cause when all the other instruments hooked up to amps your guitar even acoustic one needs to be jacked into an amp too

You can see here https://twitter. com/ISawTheLightRus/status/509417029263425536

1000 Name: anonymous : 2014-09-10 10:39 ID:SHGCR4Xz

I did, yesterday, but decided not to comment on it. Actually, in a photo you can even see Rodney going closer and bending near TH's guitar as if to hear the sound.
I know he has been playing guitar for years, but maybe his level isn't good enough for this, and I guess the purpose was for him get some experience to look credible when he will have to play guitar in the film, whether or not the singing will be his.

But it was funny to read all the comments on other boards about how he wasn't singing well because he was focused on playing, when the audience wouldn't have been able to hear his guitar anyway.
