We have a celebrity birthday today that Marvel fans will probably want to celebrate as this particular celebrity also has his own original series coming to Disney+ in just a few months.
We're talking about the man who portrays the God of Mischief himself, Tom Hiddleston.
Hiddleston celebrates his 40th birthday today, and for that reason we've pulled together 3 of his films that you need to see to properly appreciate the supremely talented performer.
Only Lovers Left Alive
Hiddleston has had his fair share of roles, but have you seen the one where he's a famous musician... who's also a vampire? He plays a well-known artist who's constantly surrounded by fans, so he's very withdrawn and sometimes has thoughts of suicide, along with an everlasting hunger for blood. It's definitely one of Hiddleston's more obscure roles since joining the Marvel universe in "Thor," and well worth the watch.
Midnight in Paris
Paris has been said to have a magical ambiance, but this movie takes the notion to another level. Once the clock hits midnight in Paris, somehow the city turns back the hours to a simpler age when some of Earth's finest writers and artists from the Jazz Age come back to life. One of the icons we get a chance to see is American novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald (played by Tom Hiddleston), and this old sport and his wife take us for an unforgettable night on the town.
Of course we had to include a "Thor" movie, because Hiddleston will always and forever be known as Loki. The mischievous character has given Hiddleston the freedom to flex his acting muscles, playing him as a straight-up villain, and later as someone with more complex motivations. At this point, we're not really sure where he stands. Whether he's fighting for good, fighting for evil, there's one thing we can count on... he'll always fight for himself.
