See Tom Hiddleston Audition To Play Thor
Loki actor was originally up for the lead role in Marvel movie...
The British star, who has become a firm fan favourite for his role as Loki, is seen shirtless and sporting long, blonde hair in the clip - released via Yahoo! Movies.
Executive producer Craig Kyle explains in the clip: "At first Tom was up for Thor. He trained, he came in, he was ripped, y'know, he was swinging the hammer.
"He did a tremendous job, but he wasn't Thor. The moment he came in and read though, he was Loki.
"The audience responds so strongly to Tom, we couldn't have been happier."
T-Hiddy has previously told Chelsea Handler about his initial audition for the Marvel superhero movie.
"I did less running and more lifting of things for awhile," the 32-year-old explained.
"I auditioned and I swung the hammer, but they were always looking for Loki as well, and I think the closer I got, they were like, 'You should play the bad guy.'"
