For the role, the thespian did his wacky best in a hilarious song bursting with remarkable energy. It’s your standard Elizabethan-era-under-the-window-seduction-scenario, and your boy Cloten (Hiddleston) arranges his face, body and voice into ridiculous expressions communicating pure love and insanity as he tries to win Imogen’s heart.
While his turn as the classic fool is completely unrelated to the current news, it is an essential delight from the vault of things the Marvel actor used to do. Hiddleston’s strong heart demonstrates itself most dramatically with some highly amusing fancy footwork at the end. (For background, here’s how some people sang this Shakespeare tune. But not Tom. No, Tom had other plans)
The human heart is a mystery that not even the Bard can nail down. But watch this below. May it enliven the conversation surrounding the end of one love story, with hope for another.
