Are you looking at me? Tom Hiddleston showed he’s not just a brilliant actor but also a master impressionist when he appeared on a UK chat show alongside Robert De Niro. WATCH his impressions right here!
He’s a brave man! Tom Hiddleston, 34, went through a slew of brilliant impressions, including one of Robert De Niro, 72, during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Oct. 2 while sitting opposite the legendary actor! Talk about pressure!
Tom, appearing with Robert, Anne Hathaway and Kenneth Branagh on the show, managed to impress The Intern actor with his own De Niro impersonation. But first, Tom revealed how he realized he had a talent for doing famous voices when he auditioned for a movie opposite Owen Wilson. Cue a brilliant impersonation of the Texan star.
Tom then launched into another impression, pulling off a Christopher Walken impersonation that had De Niro in stitches. However, it was Tom’s re-enactment of the famous coffee shop scene from Michael Mann’s 1995 classic movie Heat that had everyone laughing out loud.
Tom recalled how he memorized every word from that movie, and it’s clear he’s a man of his word, taking on both Al Pacino and De Niro impersonations in one clean swoop. Starting with Pacino, Tom set the scene and then morphed into Rob as the Oscar-winning actor looked on amused.
The Avengers star’s brilliance really has to be seen to be believed, and provided much laughs and amusement for the watching audience. Well done, Tom!
Meanwhile, Tom kept mum about his new rumored romance with Elizabeth Olsen, who he has been seen out with recently. The pair hit up the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 11 for their new film I Saw The Light side-by-side, with his protective arm round his co-star’s waist evident for all to see.
