(Video) Tom’s Interview for The Wrap

In a recent interview for The Wrap, Tom talked about his experience working on ‘I Saw The Light’. When asked about his favorite Hank Williams song, he said it was probably ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry‘, and explained ‘Maybe because it was one of the first ones I learnt, and I thought the poetry in it was incredibly simple.’ You can watch him sing a few verses of the song below.

Tom to play Hank Williams in biopic

According to The Seattle Times, Tom has signed to play country music legend Hank Williams in the biopic “I Saw the Light”.

We all know that Tom Hiddleston can do no wrong: he’s mastered the action-movie bad-guy thing (“The Avengers,” “Thor”), the period-drama thing (“The Deep Blue Sea”), the vampire thing (“Only Lovers Left Alive”), the literary-movie character thing (“Midnight in Paris”), and numerous other roles; plus, he’s pretty cute with little kids. But he’s found a new challenge: He’s signed to play country music legend Hank Williams in the biopic “I Saw the Light” (based on the Williams biography by Colin Escott), and word is that he will do his own singing, warbling Williams hits like “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” and “Hey Good Lookin.’” Williams, born in 1933, found stardom early but his career was brief; troubled by health issues and substance abuse, he died in 1953, aged just 29. The film, to be directed by Marc Abraham (“Flash of Genius”), will begin shooting in Louisiana this fall.
