Tom Hiddleston: The Greatest Living Impressionist
by Kyle Anderson on November 6, 2013
It’s kind of not fair. Tom Hiddleston, he of Loki fame, is not only a very handsome guy and a terrific actor, but he’s also incredibly funny and a master impressionist. It’s like, dude stop it already. But, I can’t even begrudge him because he’s just so damn cool. Move over, Rich Little, or whoever the current king of impressions is. Rich Little? I’m a thousand years old.
In honor of Marvel Week here on Nerdist, and because Mr. Hiddleston is the guest of honor on today’s Nerdist Podcast, we thought we’d give you a little taste of some of his best impressions, culled from several on-camera interviews and Comic-Con panels. His list of impressions include Alan Rickman, Owen Wilson, Cookie Monster, a Velociraptor, and even his Avengers co-stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Samuel L. Jackson. Man, he’s good.
Thanks to YouTuber bokilly9119 for doing all the heavy lifting here.
And just because we believe in the spirit of competition, here’s a recent clip from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in which the host and guest Benedict Cumberbatch do their own Rickmans. We still think Tom’s is best, by the bye.
