He's a pretty good match!
The first photo of Tom Hiddleston as country music legend Hank Williams was revealed on Wednesday.
To play the musician in his upcoming biopic I Saw the Light, the Avengers star had to chop off his Loki locks and go with the classic clean cut look — and we're not complaining!

I Saw the Light is based on the 1994 book, Hank Williams: The Biography and will take a look at William's quick rise to fame –including all of his personal problems with back problems, abusing prescription drugs, and alcoholism up until his early tragic death at the age of 29.
The will will also star real-life GF Elizabeth Olsen as his wife Audrey Mae, as well as Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones, Haddie Hasson, and Wren Schmidt.
It's slated to open in a limited released November 27 this year and will open nationwide after that.

What did she say?!
Gwyneth Paltrow held a Democratic National Committee gala in her backyard last night, and the guest of honor was none other than President Barack Obama.
GOOP gave a speech to her 200 guests, touching upon sustainable energy and equal pay, before introducing President Obama in the garden of her L.A. mansion last night.
But, as she was wrapping up her intro and handing the mic over to President Obama, she got a little flustered, and uttered the first thing that came to her mind, saying:

This Christmas, the happiest place on earth will be in a movie theater!
Because that's the day Tom Hanks and Disney will be making movie magic with their new film, Saving Mr. Banks!
The flick is about Walt Disney's never-ending quest to adapt Mary Poppins from a book to the big screen! But it took him 14 years of convincing before author P.L. Travers, played by Emma Thompson, would agree to let the House of Mouse make a movie about her umbrella-riding nanny!
Today, Disney is releasing the official movie poster and it gave us instant CHILLS! Shadows of Mickey Mouse and Mary Poppins? GENIUS!!!
OMG! All we want for Christmas is THIS! Cannot WAIT to see!!!
Saving Mr. Banks also stars Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti and B.J. Novak.

Cabin in the Woods star Bradley Whitford is coming to Showtime!
Sorry, boys, it's not for one of those late night skin flicks!!
The Emmy-winning TV veteran signed on to play a politically active gay man who is also Emmy Rossum's boss on Shameless!
He's scheduled to appear in at least two episodes in a show that often puts a humorous spin on William H. Macy's character's debilitating alcoholism!
After his breakout role on Billy Madison, Bradley excelled as Josh "Lemon" Lyman on seven season of The West Wing.
We wonder whether any of that will prepare him for life with the Gallagher clan? LOLz!!

We know Aaron Sorkin has been busy working on The Newsroom, but did he have enough time to write a movie script for The West Wing too?
Actor Joshua Malina had a lot of people fooled when he tweeted a picture of Allison Janney and Bradley Whitford practicing lines, along with the message:

Yeah. Can someone come over here and re-attach our jaw?
It seemed to have fallen off, and we can't get it off the floor!
Dustin Lance Black will be premiering his new play 8 - which focuses on the federal case challenging Prop 8 - for one night only on September 19th in New York City as a benefit reading, which will not only feature an A-list ensemble of Morgan Freeman, Marisa Tomei, Anthony Edwards, Rob Reiner, John Lithgow, and Bradley Whitford, but according to new reports:

Well, it lasted longer than most of the
shiteous less watched shows to which we've already said good-bye!
The Good Guys, starring Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks, has finally been taken out back and shot by the FOX network!
Dallas Film Commission's Janis Burkland explains:
"We liked the show. And they had a great experience here. But the ratings weren't good. I think it would have done well on cable. It's not the kind of show network viewers understand [because] it's too quirky. Where cable viewers are more apt to go sampling and try out different stuff, network viewers are looking for more traditional shows."
That may be the case, we think that Colin should head back over to Mad Men! We miss him there!
Sorry, guys. Better luck next time!
