Watch ‘Avengers’ Star Tom Hiddleston Nail an Impromptu Shakespeare Monologue
It’s already hard enough not to like actor Tom Hiddleston. First off, he gives a wonderful performance as Loki, the god of mischief, in both ‘Thor’ and ‘The Avengers.’ So what else can he do? Act a monologue from Shakespeare on the spot, that’s what.
For those of you who may or may not know, Tom Hiddleston is currently prepping for his role in the three-part ‘Henry V’ made for television movies from BBC, aside from the fact that he’s been pimping the heck out of ‘The Avengers’ across the world in the process. This guy must barely have time to sleep.
Anyways, Tom Hiddleston popped his head in for a few minutes on Fuse’s ‘Hoopus on Music’ to talk about what he’s doing right now. At one point he asks Hiddleston if he would be so kind enough to perform one of the monologues from ‘Henry V.’ He’s obviously uncomfortable doing so at first, it’s like asking a dog to roll over because it’s adorable. But a couple of lines in he gets completely into the role. It’s a great sight to see.
(And yes, in case you were wondering, the Hoopus we’re referring to is the lead singer from Blink 182.)
