    Yeah, but it's one thing to want to be in Star Wars... it's another to be a damn good actor who wants to be in Star Wars.

    Tom Hiddleston would be GREAT in Star Wars!

    Make him a twitchy remnant Imperial Officer and I'm totally in.

    I wouldn't mind him doing it. He took on the Loki character very well, so I'm sure he is capable of adapting to a SW role.
    Agree with Affleck about him not doing it.
    Get Benedict Cumberbatch in it. Please.

    The man is a brilliant actor; he'd also fit Star Wars to a tee, I think - maybe a former Imperial officer or some such thing. Really, I think he could play just about anything and I'd like it.

    I agree. I could definitely see him as an Imperial Remnant officer or something... but as has been mentioned, he'd be good in just about any role offered to him.

    Samuel L Jackson wanted to be in the prequels.

    Damnit, typo'd his name in the title... Can a mod please fix the name in the title to "Hiddleston"?

    I want Tom Hiddleston in a lot of things but the ST is a good start. ;)

    The Loki fangirl that's in me is jumping up and down, screaming.

    I hope they take him!

    Piett 2.0, basically?

    I think I'd give him more screen time overall than Piett had. He'd be a much larger character, thus no... not Piett 2.0.

    I want Hiddleston in the ST more... but even Jackson got his wish to be in the PT, so why can't Hiddleston get his request this time? ;)

    I'm going to predict that he will most definitely be in this now.

    I think it would be . . . interesting . . . to have Hiddleston in there. Not that I don't like him . . . it's just that I'm not sure what role he should play. :p

    I hope you're right!
    Since we don't know what roles will be available it'd be hard to answer... but I think he should be offered a pretty large role that takes advantage of his abilities as an actor. We've seen he can pull off a twisted role pretty well, and he has quite the range as an actor. He'll pull off whatever role he's given, quite nicely.

    I bet if that's what his role ended up being (supporting Imperial character) he'd still have a far more impactful screen presence than most Imperials did save Tarkin.

    I think he could be the main imperial character(if there is such a thing at all in 7). :p

    With Lucas out of the way, I'm sure GOOD actors will actually do a good job this time.
    I'm looking at you, Neeson and Jackson.

    If he gets a part, I hope it will last more than one movie (don't choke him so soon).
    A really well acted Star Wars movie sounds like a dream come true.

    Supporting Imperial/Main Imperial. Doesn't matter really if they bring back a Sith/Dark Jedi type person in control. But Hiddleson as main Imperial, Pellaeon-esqe typoe character, yeah, i could buy that.

    The thing is... unless your Villain is Thrawn... which I doubt... any Imperial style commanding role is going to be a supporting one to whomever the top bad guy is, just as Tarkin was a support character to Vader's lead villain role in ANH.

    That's why I said main imperial character, not main villain.
