Last week Tom Hiddleston came under scrutiny from Hank Williams’ grandson for being chosen to portray the country star in the new biopic, I Saw The Light. In true Hiddleston form, he responded to the concerns with the utmost respect for both the grandson and Williams himself.  In an interview with the Daily Mail, Hiddleston talked about his newest role, and the respect and responsibility due to it. “[Williams] worked hard, played hard, lived hard — there were women, there was whiskey — but when he sang about being in the doghouse in ‘Move It On Over,’ or about his heartbreak in ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,’ it came from an honest place…  Hank’s life has a tragic arc, but in simple truth, he was a genius: a star that burned twice as bright and lived half as long. It’s a huge role for me and a huge responsibility. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.’ Hiddleston also told the interview that he’s “already started singing and playing [guitar] every day” in preparation for the role.  Grammy winner Rodney Crowell, a country music legend, will be on set to assist Hiddleston will the inevitable vocal challenges he’ll face while emulating the iconic singer. Hiddleston added these kind words about Williams and his songs, “…his poetry, his lyrics, [aches] with raw vulnerability and emotion.  And, he sang them with all his heart.  They didn't call him 'The Hillbilly Shakespeare' for nothing.” Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
