Deleted lines from the Thor: The Dark World script #41
  • Loki: Hitting...doesn't solve everything, Brother.
  • Thor: Oh, really? Well, what about when the electronic box with the tiny people in becomes fuzzy?
  • Loki: OK, fine, I'll give you that.
  • Thor: And when we play that Midgardian game with the flat net sticks and the yellow spheres and the strawberries and cream?
  • Loki: Well, yes, but—!
  • Thor: And don't forget when the family bilgesnipe gently headbutts you to show how much she loves and trusts y—
  • Loki: ALL RIGHT, BROTHER!!

There was an ask from an anon about what kind of role we’d like to see Tom play, and I screamed because I’ve been thinking about this all week, but I couldn’t find the ask, so I’m just going to post my answer. K? K. 

Anyway.

So, I was watching the Thor screen test gifs (man, was I) and, with that build and the floppy hair, I think that if the powers-that-be ever decided to make a biopic about the British rock band, The Who, Tom would be a great choice to play Who frontman, Roger Daltrey.

(I realize I’m dating myself with this choice, but pfft.)

He’d be great for this. First and foremost because he’s an amazing actor, and it would give him an opportunity to play something totally different from the roles he’s had in the past.

But also:

Point 1: Return of the blond noodle hair. Let it grow, Thomas. I say let it grow.

Point 2: Lots of whooping and hollering and jumping around on stage, and we all know Tom loves whooping and hollering and jumping around.

(For example, here’s a clip of Roger in The Who’s classic rock opera, “Tommy” [ehehe]. Running, jumping, cartwheels. Our man lives for this shit.)

Point 3: This is Roger Daltrey on stage, kids. 

tom in these pants oh god oh yes oh please 

Ahem.

So yeah. Tom as Roger Daltrey. I’m calling it. Make it happen.
