My dad was a huge Hank fan.  And thanks to dad, I still love me some good country and/or bluegrass.  So I’m psyched to see I Saw The Light, a biopic about Hank Williams.  And if this picture is any indication, I’m betting Hiddleston nails it.

What do you think?  Ready for Hiddleston as Hank?

I Saw The Light hits theaters on November 27th, 2015, and goes wide later.  Fingers crossed B’more is one of the 11/27 areas!

    Tom Hiddleston deserves to become a household name given that his body of work is worthy of recognition. I Saw The Light just may do that. With Oscar buzz already being recognized for the movie, it’s consideration it will finally do Tom Justice. He is such a fine actor.

      EXACTLY. He’s amazingly talented, and yet seems to get the short end of the stick simply because he’s got a huge fan base. That doesn’t negate his talent. 🙂
