  • -You're on Broadway.

  • Congrats on the great reviews for this play.

  • I want to get to talking about that, but you walked

  • through Times Square to get to the theater,

  • and you ran into some of your Avenger friends.

  • -Yes, they resembled some of my Avengers friends.

  • -This is not really them? Wait. Let me see.

  • I think these might be really them.

  • Can we -- Can we zoom in? I just want to see.

  • -Yeah. That's definitely Tom Holland.

  • I think that's definitely Tom Holland.

  • -I can tell by his exposed thumb

  • that was coming through his glove there.

  • -You know, he travels with that suit.

  • He travels with that suit. -He really does. Yeah.

  • That was cool that they came out and supported you on Broadway.

  • I want to talk about the Disney Plus series "Loki."

  • -Yes. -You're getting own show.

  • -Unbelievable, yeah. -This is giant.

  • -This is -- It's happening. -I mean, come on. That's fun.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you.

  • Thank you. Yeah, it's amazing. I never expected it.

  • You know, I auditioned for the first "Thor" film

  • ten years ago in 2009,

  • and I just thought I was auditioning for a movie.

  • You know, an interesting part in an interesting movie.

  • Back then, the Marvel Universe was only --

  • They'd just made "Iron Man,"

  • and I thought, "I'll, you know, have a go."

  • I didn't expect to be casted at all.

  • So I can't believe I've got my own show. So exciting.

  • We go into production next year,

  • and, um, that's about as much as I can tell you.

  • -Yeah, I was going to say. Yeah. I know the way Marvel plays it.

  • You're not allowed to tell me anything at all.

  • But you were telling me backstage that when you

  • auditioned for "Thor," you actually auditioned for Thor.

  • -I did. Yes, I did.

  • Basically at the time, they were, um --

  • They were looking for sort of less well-established actors

  • so that the audience didn't have an association.

  • They just wanted people to see these new characters,

  • these new actors.

  • And the agreement was,

  • if you're over 6'0" and you've got blond hair

  • and, you know, you can come and have a pop at it.

  • So I actually auditioned. I never auditioned for Loki.

  • I only ever auditioned for Thor, which is nuts.

  • -And how long did the audition process --

  • -It was about three months.

  • -Wow. So you thought for a second --

  • You go, "This is real. I could be Thor."

  • -I -- For a second. For a time. For a second, yeah.

  • -We have friends over at Marvel

  • that sent us the original audition footage of you.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • This has never been shown. This has never been shown!

  • This has never been released. -Okay.

  • -Here's Tom Hiddleston auditioning for "Thor."

  • -And, remember.

  • You chose this.

  • For...

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -Come on!

  • That's fantastic!

  • -Thank you very much. You really are too kind.

  • Um, I think we can all agree that they cast the right actor.

  • -Let's talk about "Betrayal."

  • This is -- Only two weeks left in this run.

  • -Yes. Two weeks left. We've done it over 200 times.

  • 220, I think. -Wow.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] Fantastic.

  • -So we close on December the 8th

  • at the Jacobs Theatre on 45th Street.

  • -What is the story about? Could we --

  • -Yeah, loosely, yes.

  • I play a publisher called Robert.

  • And married to Emma, a gallerist.

  • And there's my best friend, Jerry,

  • who was best man at our wedding.

  • And Jerry and Emma have been having an affair.

  • [ Audience oohs ]

  • -"Betrayal."

  • -This is very sad, and it's also very funny.

  • And it's told in reverse order. And it's --

  • My costars are Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox.

  • And we've been doing it for a year, and it has been --

  • It's a masterpiece. It's Harold Pinter's masterpiece.

  • -I don't know how you -- I mean, you cry,

  • like, in this play, and you do this every play?

  • Do you cry every -- -Eight shows a week. Yeah.

  • We -- There's a -- I mean, it's called "Betrayal."

  • -Yes, I understand, yeah, but, I mean, you --

  • I would be like...

  • -Oh, no. I have seen -- I've seen you do your thing.

  • -You've seen my -- -I have seen you.

  • -You've seen me act?

  • -I think you're a fine actor, yeah.

  • -You're seeing the wrong person. Yeah, no, no.

  • -I'm sure you could do it. I'm sure you could.

  • -Could you cry on command,

  • like right now if I said please cry for us?

  • -Oh, God. Okay. I could try.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • You know, it depends, um --

  • -Do you want me to set you up? -Yeah, you know.

  • You have to think about, what are we talking about?

  • -All right. I'll do it with you. Am I going to make you laugh?

  • This is how I act.

  • -Let's see what we get to. -All right.

  • -Here we go.

  • Yeah. Jimmy, is everything okay?

  • -Yeah, I guess so.

  • I'm just -- I just can't --

  • Baby Yoda is so cute.
