I need some Tom Hiddleston today. Benedict Cumberbatch would have been good too, but I actually think I needed Tommy more. He’s so sweet and twee and vulnerable. He’s the human equivalent of a floppy-eared puppy. He will make everything better after Duck Dynasty bigotry and R. Kelly abuse.
So, the Donmar Warehouse has a Twitter and they’ve been releasing new images of Hiddleston and the cast of Coriolanus. This is not the soft, cuddly, velvet-ensconced Hiddles we’re used to seeing. This is a bloody Hiddles. This is Warrior Hiddles. This is ass-kicking Hiddles. I’m not sure how I feel about it. Hm… do I want him to ravage me or do I want to clean him up and give him a velvet blanket? At the Donmar Twitter, they’re also linking to the first batch of reviews for the show. It sounds like Hiddles is being praised. Good for him!
Here’s something that amuses me about Hiddles – when he’s playing Loki, he compares Loki to a Shakespearean character. When Hiddles is playing a Shakespearean character, he compares the character to Loki. Tommy is so funny.
And yes, Hiddles takes his shirt off. But he’s bloody?! I’m not sure how I feel about it. I almost prefer him as a skinny vampire.
