Tom Hiddleston Weather Report in Chicago Blames Chris Hemsworth as Thor for Rain
You thought playing Hank Williams stretched his performance skills?
Then you’ve got to watch the Tom Hiddleston weather report on a local TV station. Standing before a satellite map, the actor dryly delivered the wet forecast Thursday for the no-doubt stunned viewers of Fox 32 in Chicago.
“My brother from another mother has been misbehaving,” Hiddleston said. “The god of thunder has brought his skillset to bear on the local weather. There’s a huge storm front coming in, and all that means is Chris Hemsworth has taken his hammer and smashed it on the surface of the sky and it’s going to rain a hell of a lot. So good luck with that.”
He then wrapped up his report with a “back to you.”
“Very good. That was awesome. Way to go,” said the real TV guy said. “Loki with the weather!”

“I simply love the theme tune, the tropes, and the mythology,” he told the paper. “I love the whole thing. If it ever came knocking, it would be an extraordinary opportunity.”
