One of the biggest movie of this past month has been THOR: THE DARK WORLD, as it has grossed over $500 million dollars since it’s release on November 8th, 2013. There are a lot of themes that run through this movie that may appeal to the Live Theatre going audience, especially those that are fans of Shakespeare’s: revenge, pouty princes, royalty leading their men into battle. Yet, there is another reason that theatre lovers can enjoy this movie. All the Live Theatre performers that are in it!

Yet, one person that has received a lot of praise for his turn as the good old fashioned villain Loki, God of mischief, isTom Hiddleston. He may have exploded into public consciousness as the villainous Loki in the Thor movie, but he has been a Working Theatre and television actor for years before his role in this blockbuster movie.

His credits range from THE CHANGLING, CYMBELINE, Cassio in a production of Shakespeare’s OTHELLOAlongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ewan McGregor to critical and later Lvov in a West End revival of Chekov’s IVANOV.

Starting December 6th through February 8th, 2014,, he can be found playing title character in William Shakespeare’s theatre adaptation of CORIOLANUS at the Donmar Warehouse and Covent Garden Theatre.

Check out what he had to say about acting, Shakespeare, and his famous co-stars when he came to San Diego for in July for Comic Con and visited Nerd HQ and Zachary Levi (currently in FIRST DATE on Broadway)? Pull up a chair, get some tea and see what he has to say!

Other things that he does in this chat that may entertain you:

  • Can do many impressions of his co-stars
  • Claims to have two passions – Tennis and Shakespeare
  • Is an awesome velociraptor

In this he says there is a quote that he really likes which says (In French and English) “We all have 2 lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one- so don’t waste any time.” So click on that link already!

This year the Nerd HQ panels benefited Operation Smile.

When Tom Hiddleston, Mark Gatiss, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen and the cast of the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus came face to face with Shakespeare’s First Folio it was a day to remember

“Reade him, therefore; and againe, and againe: And if then you doe not like him, surely you are in some manifest danger, not to vnderstand him.” The sentiment has been parroted by exasperated generations of English teachers. The words themselves belong to two actors whose names are not well known, but to whom world culture owes a debt somewhat larger than, say, Greece does to the Bundesbank.
In 1623, the first folio edition of Shakespeare’s works was published by John Heminge and Henry Condell. Without them, there is no telling how many – or few – of Shakespeare’s plays would have survived for posterity, nor in what condition. The latest company to benefit from the foresight of Heminge and Condell is crowded round one of the most perfect of the many editions of the First Folio still in existence. Their faces will be familiar from other contexts: Loki from the Thor franchise, Kristine the TV journalist from Borgen and one of those blokes off The League of Gentlemen.
This is the Donmar Warehouse’s cast for its new production of Coriolanus, starring Tom Hiddleston as the warrior-politician, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as his wife Virgilia and Mark Gatiss as Menenaus. Also in the cast are Hadley Fraser as Aufidius and Deborah Findley as Coriolanus’s terrifying mother Volumnia. Here in the Chief Commoner’s Parlour, a mock Elizabethan room in the Old Library of the Guildhall in the City of London, the all but holy book is open at “Actus Primus. Scena Prima” of The Tragedie of Coriolanus. Hiddleston sits and reads from the tome as it rests on a small beanbag.
“Here he comes and in the gown of humility,” he intones, then pauses. “Wow, that is amazing.” He flicks a few pages then embarks on a speech of Caius Martius, as the titular general is known. “Oh me alone, make you a sword of me.” “Couple of notes in that, Tom,” pipes up someone. The whole cast laughs.
This outing is by way of a getting-to-know-you session organised by their director Josie Rourke. “It’s always handy at the beginning of rehearsal to have some form of cast trip,” she says, watching indulgently from the side like a school teacher with a group of years nines. “They’re enormously excited about it. It’s great to connect them with Shakespeare.”

National Theatre Live will broadcast the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse (film), BBC’s The Hollow Crown) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (Season’s Greetings at the National Theatre, BBC’s Sherlock) as Menenius, directed by the Donmar’s Artistic Director Josie Rourke.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.

Tom Hiddleton wants to do more comedy acting.

The actor, who rose to fame in the United States with his role in Steven Spielberg’s 2011 war drama film “War Horse,” has appeared in comedy projects before — he starred in the UK crime comedy series “Suburban Shootout” in 2006 and 2007 and in the celebrity-packed “Stars in Shorts” project in 2012. He also played F. Scott Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s romantic fantasy comedy film “Midnight In Paris.”

“I’ve always wanted to do more comedy,” Hiddleston told OTRC.com. “As a child, I started acting because I loved making people laugh. The first things I ever did were comedies and then I suppose when I left drama school in London, I fell into drama. I went and did Shakespeare and I guess that’s where I landed.”

About that “adult” Guillermo del Toro film …

Hiddleston is set to appear in del Toro’s horror movie “Crimson Peak,” which is scheduled to be released in 2015.

“It’s a gothic romance, it’s a horror film, it’s very adult with Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska. I have not done that yet and you talk about comedy and it’s something that I’ve really like, I’ve been sending out many subliminal messages a lot and I hope that someone finds the message in a bottle and I get to do more of that.”

On not playing the main villain in “Thor: The Dark World” …

“In a way, I’m relieved, in this film from being the villain because Chris Eccleston does such a great job as the big bad and so it leaves me more freedom to be unpredictable and like the loose cannon, I guess.”

On his role in the new “Muppets” film …

“I have a very tiny part in the ‘Muppets’ movie and that was fun. That’s not a serious film. I’ve shared screen time with Mr. Kermit the Frog and I’ve probably peaked and it’s all downhill from here.”

His favorite superhero as a child …

While talking about children’s fascination with the comic book and superhero genre, Hiddleston told OTRC.com: “I remember as a kid myself, I will never forget it, watching Christopher Reeve as Superman and not just me, and I became an actor but my friends who are now lawyers and teachers and architects and art dealers … all of us at that age were compelled by Superman the myth, the mythology, that the idea of a superhero, good and evil.”

“And I think that’s what it is — I think children have such huge imaginations and these films play into that,” he said. “They want to believe in space and spaceships and gods and monsters and heroes and villains. And I think, I hope, there’s still a kid in everybody, that you can tap into that and enjoy the film.”
