Check Out Tom Hiddleston’s Hairy Audition for Thor … as Thor

6 Comments

Tom Hiddleston at the London Premiere of Thor: The Dark World

Before he became Loki, Thor’s mischievous half-brother, everyone’s favorite British villain Tom Hiddleston was up for the role of Thor himself. And he dyed his hair blond and got pumped up for the role, too, as you can see from this rare audition footage featuring Hiddleston in Thor guise, complete with magic hammer.

So what happened in the audition? Well, according to Hiddleston, he almost nabbed the role, but it didn’t quite happen:

Every English-speaking actor over 6 foot was being seen for the part. I got down to the final few, which also included Chris’s younger brother Liam Hemsworth, Alexander Skarsgård, and Charlie Hunnam.

Wow, that’s interesting. I didn’t know Chris Hemsworth’s little bro Liam was also in the running. I wonder how that family dinner went?

“Mom, Chris won’t let me have the Thor role!”

Anyways, here are some gifs from Hiddleston’s audition as Thor in the first “Thor” movie back in 2011. I think Marvel and everyone made the right decision when they decided to cast the charismatic Hiddleston as Loki and gave Hemsworth Thor, don’t you think?

    The final decision was between the two Hemsworth brothers.

      Yeah that was a big one when he first got the role, He talked it up a lot. But then Hemsworth the second got Hunger Games and all was well.

    Those other names mentioned would all be a good fit for Aquaman too.
