A DAY AGO ENTERTAINMENT
Ah, a beautiful day is upon us: Tom Hiddleston’ birthday is here. It’s hardly like we ever pass up an opportunity to talk about the classically trained actor’s best attributes, but clearly we should spend some time especially dwelling in it on his birthday. It has, after all, been a relatively quiet year on the Hiddleston front — we got Thor: The Dark World in November 2013, and we got Only Lovers Left Alive that year, too; but we only got a Muppets Most Wanted cameo and The Pirate Fairy in 2014. Never fear, though, Hiddlestonians: Hiddleston’s got quite the slate lined up for us in the coming year and beyond.
For real, though: 2015 is going to be a mighty busy year for Hiddleston. From a return visit to the Avengers and a pretty big biopic, to an American television debut and a Guillermo Del Toro movie, the newly minted 34-year-old has a lot on his plate. Luckily for all of us it’s a pretty juicy plate — there’s a lot to bite into.
Here’s what you can look forward to in the realm of the Hiddles in the coming year and beyond:
Avengers: Age Of Ultron
This one was supposed to be kept a secret, considering all that previous talk of Hiddleston very much not being in another Avengers movie. But Idris Elba spilled the beans, much to Joss Whedon’s consternation, and both Elba and Hiddles will be making visits from Asgard in Age Of Ultron, even if only for a brief scene.
Hiddleston will be going from Asgard to a high-rise building that goes completely bonkers. He plays Dr. Robert Laing, and according to Empire and io9 he will be participating as this building turns into a “bacchanalian den of iniquity.” Damn, sign me up.
