  • Tom Hiddleston will star in Hank Williams Biopic Playing the Music Legend’s character.

Tom Hiddleston will be seen playing the role of Hank Williams in “I Saw the Light”.

Hank Williams got his fame from adapting Shakespeare’s work. His famous songs include “Your Cheatin Heart”, “Men with Broken Hands”, “I Can’t Help If I’m Still in Love With You”. He used Shakespeare’s Othello and Cymbeline to formulate his works. 

Hiddleston who is famous for playing “Loki” in Thor series is doing this kind of soft image role for the very first time. He said that he worked really hard for this movie as it is a big responsibility to play the role of a legend of music. 

The executive music producer of this biopic, Rodney Crowell stated that he thinks that Hiddleston is a great choice for this role. He said that he came with an open mind and wanted to work as authentically as possible.  He stayed with Crowell in Nashville in order to immerse himself in the role for five weeks. 

Hiddleston said that he knew that he had to come out of his comfort zone in order to give a great performance. This is the reason he stayed away from London.

He also added that spending time around different musicians gave him all the insights regarding how musicians think. He said he actually learnt a lot while staying in Nashville. He came to know about country music in order to play his part in the right way for this biopic. 

Hiddleston also stated that he feels really close to the musician after having learnt a lot about him. He said that he felt closer to him by knowing about the feel and energy he put into his songs.

He said that he thought that he and Hank were alike when he discovered the remorse and anguish found inside the lyrics of all of his famous songs. 

It looks like he will be doing justice to this biopic for sure.
