Whatever happened to Southern hospitality?
Remember when we told you Brit heartthrob Tom Hiddleston had been tapped to play American music icon Hank Williams in an upcoming biopic? Well, Hank's grandson — country star Hank Williams III — ain't on board with this selection at ALL!
Hank3 thinks Tom is the wrong man for the job and that the role should be played by something with real rootis in the American South.
Yup, Hank thinks Matt was brilliant in Dallas Buyers Club and that the role should go to him!
While Matt was indeed AH-Mazing in his Oscar-winning role, Tom is a TERRIFIC actor in his own right! And the whole thing about acting is that it's pretending to be someone you are not!
We're sure Tommy boy's Southern accent could sound legit with some work.
Hank (the first), who died in 1959, did a bunch of drugs, drank a lot of booze, and wrote a lot of quality songs. We imagine the biopic will focus on that.
