Tom Hiddleston Goes Shirtless for 'Thor' Screen Test (VIDEO)
The 32-year-old actor was originally up for the lead role of Thor before reading for the role of villain Loki.
“Every English-speaking actor over 6 foot was being seen for the part,” Tom told The Guardian about his audition process. “I got down to the final few, which also included Chris’s younger brother Liam Hemsworth, Alexander Skarsgard, and Charlie Hunnam.”
Tom packed on 20 pounds of muscle for the screen test and it eventually helped him land his fan favorite role of Loki.
