Tom “Loki” Hiddleston To Sing And Portray Hank Williams In I SAW THE LIGHT!!
Tom Hiddleston will portray country music legend Hank Williams in I SAW THE LIGHT, to be directed by Marc Abraham (the highly successful uber-producer of CHIDLREN OF MEN who also helmed FLASH OF GENIUS back in 2008).
Production will begin in Louisiana in October, and Hiddleston will sing such Williams standards as “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hey Good Lookin’,” after the film’s backers made a deal with Sony ATV to secure rights to the Williams music catalog.
…says THIS piece at Deadline.
ComingSoon produced this side-by-side of Hiddleston (l) and Williams (r)…
…and the likeness is rather notable.
So, one has to ask two questions at this point: 1) Can Hiddleston sing? And, 2) does it matter?
