“The Avengers” star Tom Hiddleston talks Loki and beating up Iron Man


Posted by on

If 2011 was Tom Hiddleston‘s year to break out on the movie scene, then 2012 is his chance to shine. After stealing scenes in “Thor,” “Midnight in Paris” and “War Horse,” Hiddleston comes to the forefront in one of the most anticipated movies of next year: “The Avengers.” His character Loki is the central villain in the film, and will likely cause much violence and mayhem before he is finally — hopefully — stopped.

So what element of the film is Hiddleston most looking forward to fans seeing in “The Avengers”? Him laying the beatdown on everyone’s favorite Marvel billionaire playboy, Tony Stark.

“I had the privilege of throwing Robert Downey Jr. out of a window. So, it’s pinch-me moments all the way,” Hiddleston told the New York Daily News.

We’re going to need a little more context than that. Turns out he’s referencing the scene from the trailer where Loki chucks Tony Stark through a sheet of glass.

“I did get to throw Tony Stark [Iron Man’s alter ego] through a window — which you can see in trailers — all I can tell you is he deserved it,” he said. “He’s got a sharp tongue, that Tony Stark.”

Based on Stark’s behavior in the previous movies, we completely believe it.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
