How about this for some potential casting news?
Would Tom Hiddleston make a good Dark Lord Of The Sith in the new Star Wars movies?
Digital Spy caught up with the actor and asked if there was any interest in playing a role in Star Wars.
Hiddleston seems caught off guard at first by the question as he apparently had not really thought about it, but upon further thought would be all for it.
He says he is a big fan of the original Star Wars movies and would “absolutely” do it, but of course, “it would depend on the story and character and things.”
Tom Hiddleston then goes on to state that we wasn’t sure as some people may “associate me too closely with Loki,” but offers that he hopes that would not be the case.
Hiddleston has previously worked with Kathleen Kennedy, who is spearheading Star Wars for Disney, and he says of Kennedy, “[She’s] a filmmaker of such extraordinary experience and wisdom” and “she’s one of the best producers I’ve ever worked for.”
“She just knows her way around the medium and the art form and the industry,” Hiddleston continued. “So I think I’d take it very seriously if they asked me.”
Tom Hiddleston does bring up a good point in regards to Loki, and it’s also rather interesting that even Hiddleston – as most likely a majority of fans – think he would play a villain — but what about Tom Hiddleston as a Jedi Knight?

Hiddleston is also filming Thor 2, “The Dark World,” which has a November 8, 2013 release date.
