Tom Hiddleston Says He’d Consider Being in Star Wars If Asked


In an interview with Digital Spy, Tom Hiddleston has said that he would consider appearing in the upcoming Star Wars films if asked.

“I’m a huge fan, especially of the first three,” said Loki Hiddleston. “…Absolutely, yeah. It would depend on the story and the character and things. But I don’t know, maybe people would associate me too closely with Loki—I hope not.”

The actor then went on to discuss LucasFilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, who produced Steven Spielberg‘s War Horse, which Hiddleston co-starred in. ”[She's] a filmmaker of such extraordinary experience and wisdom—she’s one of the best producers I’ve ever worked for,” he said. “She just knows her way around the medium and the art form and the industry, so I think I’d take it very seriously if they asked me.”

So, what do you think? Does the idea of Hiddleston venturing to a galaxy far, far away give you heart palpitations? Or does it make you cringe? Would you like to see him playing a Sith, a Jedi, or someone completely different?

Or are you just sick of all these Star Wars casting rumors? (Not that this is a rumor, mind you. He just said it would be cool to do if he were asked. Literally. That’s all.) I’m now imagining a world in which every actor in every single interview is asked whether they’d want to be in the Star Wars sequels. Daniel Day-Lewis. Lindsay Lohan. Robert De Niro. Every. Single. One.

    Honestly, the only thing that could get me to a new Star Wars movie is Hiddleston’s presence in the cast.
    That said, I’d pay to watch a movie of Tom Hiddleston walking around an empty room, so I’m certainly not impartial.

    He should get a chance to play a good guy in a genre film.

    Funny you should should say that, Nicole!

    Tom is, I think, the only reason I’d watch any of the upcoming SW (I’m still not over the last three)!

    Oh yeah…. but for all that’s good, please don’t let anyone cast him in a rom-com right away. He’s much better than that.

    It just occurred to me that Tom Hiddleston would have made a *fantastic* young Obi Wan Kenobi.

    I would certainly watch it if Tom is in it but have reservations about how good a 7th sequel will be. Part of me wants to see him in something outside the sci fi /comic genre=he has so much Talent i would hate to see him get pigeoned holed
