Tom Hiddleston celebrates his fortieth birthday. The opportunity to come back to a role that the British actor played a few years ago, that of … Captain Hook!
He rubbed shoulders with the Avengers, faced King Kong, played a vampire in front of Jim Jarmusch’s camera … But did you know that Tom Hiddleston had also played the famous Captain Hook on the big screen? As the actor celebrates his 40th birthday, take a look back at this experience unlike any other.
In 2014, Tom Hiddleston therefore lent his voice to Captain James Hook in the Disney animated film Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy, inspired by the world of Peter Pan. A version of the young character, much nicer than that of the cult 1953 cartoon or the one played in live action by Dustin Hoffman in Steven Spielberg’s Hook.
Regarding his incarnation of the Captain, Tom Hiddleston says: “Hook knows he’s bad. He likes being a pirate and dreaming of huge lootings. The kids are afraid of him, but they love him too. We say to ourselves, ‘This guy is having fun and playing his part.'” This experience, which also allows the Briton to sing (well), as you can see in the player above, offers the actor the opportunity to vocally share the poster with Christina Hendricks, Lucy Liu or Anjelica Huston.
Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy isn’t Tom Hiddleston’s only voiceover experience. The very young forty-something, who will find his character of Loki next May in the Disney + series specially dedicated to Thor’s half-brother, indeed appeared in the vocal credits of Troll Hunters: The Tales of Arcadia. In this Netflix animated show created by Guillermo del Toro, Hiddleston played the character of Kanjigar.
