Tom Hiddleston Set To Lend Voice To Early Man

Thor actor Tom Hiddleston is ready to provide his voice as the villain in Aardman‘s upcoming Early Man.

Best known for its Wallace and Gromit property, Aardman is currently working on a comedy set during the stone age. Nick Park, who previously worked on the studio’s Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit, is slated to direct the project, while Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne is set to star alongside Hiddleston as the film’s protagonist Dug:

Nick Park said of the casting: “Tom is a wonderful actor and it’s so thrilling to see him bring our comic villain to life with his amazing talent, energy and enthusiasm. It is a great privilege to work with Tom and I’m so excited to see his character Lord Nooth emerge on screen!”

Tom added: “I have been a fan of Nick Park and Aardman for as long as I can remember, and am incredibly honoured to be working with Nick and the team on this adventure. I’m thrilled to be able to breathe some semblance of life into this hysterical villain and to work with Eddie for the first time. ‘Early Man’ made me laugh out loud when I read it. Lord Nooth is larger than life in every respect. I can’t wait for audiences to meet him.”

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
