November 25, 2019:
A television appearance almost six years in the making! There was even a petition.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon premiered in February 2014. Since then Tom Hiddleston has appeared in 10 movies, starred in a Golden Globe winning television series, and made his Broadway debut 3 months ago but somehow today was his first time on the show.
Tom's appearance comes a day after the Evening Standard Theatre Awards where he was nominated for his role in Betrayal (West End). Tom lost out on the Best Actor award to Andrew Scott.
Prior to the episode airing, Fallon Tonight shared a short clip. The clip shows previously unseen footage from Tom Hiddleston's original audition for Thor.
We had seen a little bit from this same scene in the Thor: The Dark World bonus features but this is the first time we've heard it with sound.
Back in 2013, Tom mentioned that he had auditioned in an American accent: "I was only ever Thor for a very short period of time and that was even before the character was clearly written on the page. I auditioned for Thor in an American accent.". Tbh he could've played Loki, Odin, Thor, and Sif all at the same time and it still would have been amazing but I think we're all happy Tom ended up as Loki.
Tom also took to Instagram to share his excitement about being on Fallon Tonight.
You can watch the full interview below. Jimmy asked Tom about running into his Avengers co-stars in Centtal Park (not really) and they cry over Baby Yoda (really).
I apologize for really failing fashion-wise. The search for items is seriously hindered by the fact that I can not longer see in any kind of detail. I'll be retiring the fashion from my Hiddles as soon as I finish out my Costume Design series.
But what I can see? Yes, please. This is peak Professor Hiddles! I feel like staying after class and doing some extra credit. There are so many elements to this outfit that are a completely new style for Tom. I'm here for turtleneck Tom! The sportscoat is also really interesting. It has patch pockets and a collar tab which is rare combination.
Ralph Lauren confirmed on twitter that Tom was wearing their pre-Spring 2020 collection.
