"Did I say that WAY too quickly?"  
I'm shockingly sort of lost in Captain America: Winter Soldier feelings.

On a completely lighthearted note, this video never stops being funny to me. No spoilers.

Hee! Between this and the Hiddleston impression of Evans, where he's talking about Hemsworth's muscles, one could get the idea that Evans is very admiring of Hemworth's appearance. I was just watching a compilation video of the two Chrises being interviewed together this morning. Youtube was all 'hey, you might enjoy this' and I said 'yes, I probably would, thank you YouTube'. Everyone in The Avengers is so cute with everyone else.

I've always wondered if there's a psychological significance to whether actors refer to themselves or their co-stars as their characters (e.g. 'I'm looking for revenge' vs 'Loki is looking for revenge'). Scarlet and Chris refer to all the superheros by their actor's names, whereas the rest of the cast use the character names.

When Scarlett Johanssen said "Now everybody knows" my first thought was everyone knew two years ago during the Avengers thanks to Hiddleston.

I also started to wonder about this because I saw the longer version of this interview and everyone started off with doing character names only before Johanssen and Evans slid into using the actors' names.

Having read a rather extensive article on Chris Evans and his decision to sign on as Captain America sending him into therapy, I wouldn't be too surprised if certain lines get blurred for him a little easily.

I say this but when I first saw this clip and Sebastian Stan jokingly said Alexander Pierce would have luck with the ladies, I immediately wondered why women wouldn't go for Robert Redford before remembering he's referring to the character.

Aww! Poor baby. I feel like all actors should be in therapy, not because they're mentally ill, but because the world they live in is so crazy that they need a little place to rant about it.

I remember watching an interview with Hiddleston where he answers something with 'I--I mean Loki, no don't cross the lines!'. Of course, we all know Hiddleston still goes home and pretends to be Loki sometimes. He's Loki's biggest fan.

The article did a rather good job of mapping out Evans' overall discontent of how his acting career panned out. I mean, yes, he's making a ridiculous amount of money and adored by many but I could sympathize that being Captain America means he has a much harder time convincing directors and the audience that he can make quieter, actorish films. I'm always slightly taken aback when he appears in a serious role and is rather good.

I think that's the one where he did the Ghostbusters referencing "Don't cross the streams!" and the world fell in love with him by another 20%.

I haven't seen him in much to be honest, but he does often surprise me by popping up in random movies here and there that I didn't know he was in. Just when I read reviews of them in People or whatever.

It's not a 'serious' role, but I loved Push and was bummed that it didn't do well.

Yes, that's it! Way to know what I'm talking about even when I don't. *high fives*

I really liked Evans' performance in Sunshine and </i>Snowpiercer</i>. He had to shoulder the movie in the latter one and did it quite well.

but I loved Push and was bummed that it didn't do well.

I also liked this movie. It was one of those, "Oh, well, the DVD is here. I'll just watch it" movies but I ended up really liking it. That world seemed to so fascinating.

Yeah, it set up a great mythology, I would have liked to see more of it. It was clever, too, which was nice. I dig cool use of powers. I still love Magneto magnetizing himself to the plane in XM:FC to keep Charles from falling out.

I was so amused/impressed by that.

This is sort of off topic-ish but youTube helpfully linked me to an interview Hiddleston did in Korea while he was there for the Thor 2 tour. He learned to say 'thank you' and 'it's beautiful' in Korean. His accent is impressively good. Also, apparently if you google his name in Korea, the number one thing that pops up is how much people love his laugh.

You do me proud, Korea.

I saw that interview! With the KPop girl, who was so charming and you kind of end up shipping them by the end.

Watching Hiddleston laughing his laugh about his laugh is so meta and adorable.

I really love his enthusiasm for different languages and people and countries. He just seems like someone who loves to learn about everything, which I do as well, so it's something I can appreciate in him. Learning is my joy in life, really.

Why did I even contemplate that you hadn't seen this interview??

I really love his enthusiasm for different languages and people and countries.

I liked how he genuinely threw himself into the experience of going sight seeing in Korea. It's not the easiest country to be in, even when you speak the language and aren't like an entire person taller than everyone else.

I always tend to brace myself whenever non-Koreans take a stab at Korean but he was rather good. He nearly matches Toby Stephens as surprise good Korean speaker.

I have now watched so many interviews that YouTube tells me what's new in the Tom Hiddleston when I go to the homepage. Like, not even 'you might be interested' just 'here is what Tom Hiddleston is doing now, Tay'.

I liked how he genuinely threw himself into the experience of going sight seeing in Korea.

His world tour was really cute. He was posting pictures of everywhere he went, and he looked to be having a blast. I imagine having the opportunity to travel like that is amazing. You basically get paid to be on vacation.

I wondered how good Toby Stephens was. He has the blood of Maggie Smith in him though. So he must be pretty badass at most things, just on principle.

I imagine you have the same reaction to Korean as I do to French. Only mine takes the form of 'no, those subtitles aren't how I would have translated that' rather than 'that's not how you pronounce that!'.

Geo-locked, unfortunately. No videos for Canadians. :(

Dammit! Yeah, every cast member picked getting married to Loki over Red Skull. It's the smarter choice.

They also asked if you'd rather have Stark's mustache or Thor's abs. Chris Evans said he'd take Thor's anything.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on April 28th, 2014 10:41 pm (UTC)
Well, just from an aesthetic point of view, Loki is the sensible choice, and he does have some sort of good in him you could hope to bring out. I mean, if you had to marry one or the other, I'd definitely go with Loki.

I'm trying to think who I would pick out of the MCU if I had a choice to marry anyone, though. I think Steve is probably the one best suited to me. Or maybe Thor. I like a chivalrous guy, and Asgard is pretty to live on.

Chris Evans said he'd take Thor's anything.

I can't tell if that's jealousy or a crush. Either option is adorable.

A couple referenced that he can change his shape so that's very fun.

I'd probably also go with Steve. He's an all around nice person (that's his superpower, really) and underneath his raging PTSD is a pretty healthy person with respect to relationships with other people. Sure, a part of me would want to go on a date with Tony Stark just to see what that's like but never marriage.

Yeah, I was thinking about Fandral, as I'm rather fond of him, but he seems a womanizer and I wouldn't put up with that. I'd want someone loyal.

A but a date with Tony Stark would be brilliant. He'd probably fly you to Paris and buy you a castle.

Yeah, the sheer spectacle of going on a date with Stark would be fun maybe once, at most twice. But after that it'd just be a headache.

I now started playing a version of that superheroes game in my head. I'd probably want to have a beer with Coulson. I feel like he's someone who after some alcohol would have a lot to say about life.

I'd choose Loki as my professional challenge. If I could somehow rig it so that he can't kill me the second I upset him, trying to give therapy to Loki would be interesting. Unlike some other Marvel characters, he feel like less of a lost cause. A tough one, but not lost.

I agree with that. I think Asgardian Royal family could use a little group therapy. Let everyone get a chance to explain themselves while everyone else is listening. And awake.
