Tom Hiddleston is one of the actors being considered to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond. If he's chosen, fans around the world will rejoice -- once they get done swooning.
Time Magazine did a poll last year of the 100 actors viewers would prefer as the new James Bond. Tom Hiddleston came in 12th out of 100, behind Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jude Law, but ahead of Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth, and Angelina Jolie. The Inquisitr confirmed that Tom Hiddleston is interested in the role of super-spy James Bond and would accept it if offered. He said it would be an "extraordinary opportunity."
In the United States, Tom Hiddleston is perhaps best known for playing Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has played the trickster god in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World. It's rumored he'll reprise the role in Thor: Ragnarork, Avengers: Infinity War (Part 1), and Avengers: Infinity War (Part 2).
However, in Great Britain and the rest of Europe, the range of Hiddleston's versatility is perhaps better known and better appreciated. He's an award-winning actor, not just a pretty face. Loki is tall, dark, handsome, and charismatic. Tom Hiddleston is tall (at 6-foot-2-inches), but his hair varies between blond and strawberry blond when it's not dyed for a role or covered with a wig. Although he's undoubtedly charismatic, those who've met him mention his charm and unfailing courtesy first, as described in Bustle. He earned a double first in Classics at the University of Cambridge and studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
