Tom Hiddleston wants Star Wars Episode VII role

Nov 15 2012, 10:03am CST | by

Tom Hiddleston wants to appear in 'Star Wars: Episode VII', but he will not be directed by Ben Affleck in the movie after the 'Argo' star said he is ''glad'' he doesn't have to take on the role.

Tom Hiddleston wants to feature in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.
The 31-year-old actor is keen to take up a role in the forthcoming sci-fi movie - which is being created by Disney after the entertainment multinational purchased LucasFilm from George Lucas for an estimated $4 billion - but he is concerned he might now be typecast as his 'Thor' and 'Avengers Assemble' character Loki.
When asked if he would consider a role in the film, he told Digital Spy: ''Absolutely, yeah. It would depend on the story and the character and things.
''But I don't know, maybe people would associate me too closely with Loki - I hope not.''
Should Tom sign up for the movie he looks unlikely to be directed by Ben Affleck as while a number of helmers, including Guillermo del Toro, have expressed an interest in taking on the role, the 'Argo' star says he is ''glad'' he doesn't have to do the job.
Speaking to MTV News, he explained: ''There are a lot of good directors out there. Naturally I would be inclined to get somebody who's great at telling stories. You're never going to be able to recapture the story that was the initial three, because it's so legendary and iconic. I don't know, I'm glad I don't have that job. It's a tough decision to make.''
'Star Trek' helmer J.J. Abrams has already ruled himself out of directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII', but Ben believes he would be the ideal man for the job.
He added: ''J.J. would kill it, he would crush it, but he would be great at anything.''

Tom Hiddleston Thanks Whedon for Avengers Role

Jul 30 2014 8:37pm CDT | Source: ign

Ever since he rose to fame as the villainous Loki, Tom Hiddleston has gained a reputation as a fangirl heartthrob and all-around classy gent. If there were any worries that the actor's humble reputation is anything less than genuine, they can be put to rest now. In her book Joss Whedon: The Biography, author Amy Pascale includes an email exchange between Hiddleston and Whedon in which the English actor graciously thanks Whedon for including him in The Avenger ...

Read Tom Hiddleston's loving fan letter to Joss Whedon

Jul 30 2014 4:23am CDT | Source: Total Film

Tom Hiddleston's Loki is one of the high-points of Joss Whedon's Avengers. The 'puny God' scene is arguably the film's best moment. Those are just facts.  And it turns out Tom knew that would be the case from the moment he picked up Whedon's script. In fact, he got so excited he penned a gushing email to the writer / director as soon as he finished it, and you can read it below. Joss, "I am so excited I can hardly speak. "The first tim ...

Nerd HQ: The Heart of Comic-Con

Jul 26 2014 10:29am CDT | Source: movie pilot

I've never been to Comic-Con. San Diego's prestigious event for cool folk the world over is actually only something that I've fairly recently started following. Since around 2012, truthfully. Perhaps it was the mighty summer superhero buzz that had me flowing in a river of comic book treacle - that year we got The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man - or maybe it was just by chance that on my daily YouTube venture I stumbled across Andr ...

Star Wars: Episode VII, Fantastic Four, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part One, Chappie... these are only a few of the major release that aren't coming to Comic Con this year. Either a lot of these movies simply don't have enough footage ready or some studios are beginning to care less about Comic Con. Hopefully it's not the latter case. Some of those films listed will make some sort of an apperance, but it's a shame they're not making the trip down to Ha ...
