Tom Hiddleston revealed in an interview with Jimmy Fallon that he actually wanted to play Thor instead of the God of Chaos.
Hiddleston appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the host shared never-before-seen footage of Hiddleston auditioning for Thor instead of his famous character Loki.
Hiddleton explained that the team at Marvel Studios wanted “less-established actors” so that viewers “wouldn’t have an association.” The requirement was that these actors had to be over six-feet-tall and have blonde hair.
The footage shows the actor sporting a head full of blonde locks while donning a gray sleeveless top. With Thor’s hammer in hand, Tom Hiddleston shouted, “You chose this, for Atlan!” during the audition.
“I think we can all agree that they cast the right actor,” Hiddleston hilariously recounted.
Hiddlestion also revealed that the casting process began in 2009 and lasted three months, but the character ultimately went to Chris Hemsworth.
