Tom Hiddleston to star in the upcoming remake of Ben-Hur? August 12, 2014

tomhiddlestonDeadline reports that Paramount and MGM are “courting” Tom Hiddleston to play the title role in their upcoming remake of Ben-Hur. Hiddleston, who is best-known for playing the villainous Norse god Loki in The Avengers and the two Thor movies, has demonstrated his range in a number of smaller films, including Steven Spielberg’s War Horse (which I’m only mentioning here because his role as a cavalry officer might be as close as he’s gotten so far to driving a chariot), so it could be good to see him play the hero in a potential blockbuster such as this. The film currently has a release date of February 26, 2016 and is set to be directed by Timur Bekmambetov from a script by Keith R. Clarke and John Ridley.

    Oh boy, I LOVE the Hiddles, and yet… I’m not sure his features are quite masculine enough. He looks more like a Greek golden boy than Ben-Hur the rugged Jew. Maybe I’m just biased in favor of Charlton Heston. No doubt Hiddles would act it very well.
