Tom Hiddleston (Marvel’s Loki) was recently interviewed by Timeout promoting his upcoming flick “Only Lovers Left Alive”, during the interview he was asked about his chances of being offered a role in the new slate of Star Wars films from Disney, his response is below:
“Well, that hasn’t happened yet. It’d be very flattering, of course. I did talk to Ewan about it once. When they asked if he wanted to be Obi-Wan Kenobi he said: “Are you joking? Of course!” But his experience didn’t live up to the promise. Besides, I imagine they’re looking for people who don’t have an association elsewhere. The audience need to believe in the character, rather than saying, “Oh look, Loki with a lightsaber!”
What do you think, would Hiddleston work in Star Wars? is he to closely associated with Loki?
