One May Smile, And Smile, And Be A Villain: Cinema's Most Charming Creeps

Thor opens in the U.S. this weekend and the most positive buzz I've heard surrounding the film (which has already premiered in Europe) has not been for its muscle-bound lead actor (Chris Hemsworth), nor for either of the comely females, one scrawny (Natalie Portman), one buxom (Kat Dennings). No, the lion's share of the praise is being heaped on the film's silver-tongued, trickster villain, Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston. What, you've never heard of him? You didn't watch the twee BBC mini-series "Return To Cranford: Alas, Now With Less Eileen Atkins"? Well I have it on very good authority that his is a name you're going to know soon enough. Jack Giroux at Film School Rejects has a lovely interview with Hidddleston about both Thor and his upcoming projects with Woody Allen and Steven Spielberg.
