Hiddleston sings in this clip from the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light

I SAW THE LIGHT follows legendary country western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. While Tom Hiddleston certainly looks the part, we now have the very first clip showing off a bit of Hiddleston's singing prowess, as well as Elizabeth Olsen as Audrey Mae Williams.

At this point, it's not a matter of whether or not audiences can buy Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams, but whether or not the writing and the direction of the story live up to his potrayal. Marvel fans love him for his terrifically fun take as Loki, so I'm hoping the man can pick up some other projects like this that really show off his acting chops. Perhaps THOR: RAGNAROK can be a musical?

I SAW THE LIGHT will open in theaters on November 27, 2015.

Voice not there

It's really a great role and like Tom Hiddleston's acting but the voice is so far from Hank's he had such a classic signature sound, also the sadness in his voice in some of the tunes amazing. If Hiddleston can't sell some of the easier upbeat tunes ther is no way he'll hit the tone and feeling of the deeper songs.

As much as I love him as Loki, I'm looking forward to seeing him in something else that doesn't require him to rule Asgaard.

Then you don't have to wait long, since Crimson Peak opens in a month.

That was a good performance

Tom Hiddleston doesn't totally sound like Hank Williams, but that's not necessarily a bad thing - Hank's voice can be an acquired taste. But he definitely nails the look and the stance. This flick has serious potential; I'm looking forward to it.

Can't wait for this, he does have a decent voice. I mean he's no Hank, but still it could've been much worse. Also, they really need to explore the darker sides of Hank and how it ultimately cost him his life.
