"Yah...yah..."  
It was only a matter of time before someone asked Benedict Cumberbatch to imitate Tom Hiddleston.

Hee! Josh Horowitz does the best interviews. I love how at ease he puts everyone. They all seem happy to see him, too.

Do we have a Hiddleston!Cumberbatch impression to match? If not, I know what Josh is going to ask for next time he sees him.

I'm just picturing drunken impressions of each other at the tea parties, with faun!Whishaw giggling softly in the background. Drunken impressions of the other reciting Shakespeare.

I don't think so. Definitely it should be on Josh Horowitz's list for questions to Hiddleston next time.

Now that I think about it, has Josh Horowitz ever done an actual interview with TH? I feel like they've tons of skits but no actual serious, well, "serious" interview.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 15th, 2014 01:04 am (UTC)
They did a sort of interview for the 'sleepover' thing. Those questions were about as serious as Josh ever gets. But I don't think they've done an actual interview where they were in chairs opposite each other, talking. When Tom went to MTV for The Dark World, the blonde woman he gave his jacket to at the premiere interviewed him.

Wait...there was something about Tom's response to the whole 'polishing our zygoma' thing that Cumberbatch talked about on his Reddit AMA. Was that Josh who brought that up? No, Google informs me it was Yahoo Movies who asked him about it.

...I know a little too much about Tom Hiddleston interviews, evidently.

There was some interview Josh Horowitz did with Tom Hiddleston (it was one of the red carpet ones) where he asked him something about what life will be like once he's done playing Loki. Either as a joke or as a it's-a-joke-but-also-kind-of-true moment, TH looked like he was going to cry. Which film was that for? Thor 2 or Avengers?

Wow, good job. You got there faster than me, I had just started looking for it, because I knew which one you meant. I'm fairly confident he was pretending, but I can also totally see him getting very upset the day it's all over, Marvel-wise. He's never going to be one of those actors who gets sick of talking about his most famous part. He's going to be delighted by it.

He has this weird quirk of identifying things by their creator. He did it in the interview there, 'Kenneth Brannagh's Thor', but in the Dark World commentary, he did it every time he mentioned 'Thor', as well as 'Natalie Portman as Jane Foster' every time he mentioned the character. It must be part of his incurable politeness, but I'm not sure what he's afraid will happen if he leaves the names out. 'Perhaps someone might think I directed 'Thor', I better make it clear'.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 15th, 2014 01:28 am (UTC)
I also did find a few interviews with Horowitz and Hiddleston sitting down to talk about serious things. Including an early interview with them back in the days of the first Thor movie before they became skit buddies.

I'm not sure what he's afraid will happen if he leaves the names out. 'Perhaps someone might think I directed 'Thor', I better make it clear'.

Hee! He might also want to always make sure the proper people get the credit they deserve for their work.

There was a while last fall when I was very stressed out when I just typed Tom's name into youtube and sorted by length and listened to him talk about things, because I found his voice and enthusiasm very soothing.

Then youtoube started telling me what was new in the Tom Hiddleston tag. Like, not even 'recommend videos' or 'here's people who post Tom videos', it was literally 'here is what Tom Hiddleston is doing today, Tay' and I felt a little weird.

Hee! He might also want to always make sure the proper people get the credit they deserve for their work.

Yeah, that's probably it, but usually people who are listening to the commentary at the end of the movie have been there since the start, so we all were pretty clear Natalie Portman was the one playing Jane by the time we reached the end. But it's nice of him to be a walking IMDB. Saves on the Googling. :-)

Ha! Yeah.

'Hey youtube, how are you tod--'
'Four new Tom videos. He's speaking French in one of them.'
'...thank you.'

Hee hee! youTube sounds like a disgruntled JARVIS. Like if his Quipping program got infected by something.

JARVIS: *automatically opens door*
Steve: Thank you, JA-
JARVIS: I get it, Rogers. You're a REAL polite boyscout. Old world charm all the way. REALLY great.
Steve: Um...
Tony: I'm working on it. Something's made him go from sassy to cranky.
JARVIS: Oh, you're working on it? Which means I'm working on it because we all know who has to do all the work around here, SIR.

As soon as I posted it I realized I had my JARVIS voice on. :-D

Haha! That would be an awesome fic. JARVIS just yelling at everyone all day while Tony gets increasingly disgruntled, because the real Jarvis only ever got angry when he did something really bad and now he feels guilty for no reason.

'I haven't even done anything stupid today!'
'No, sir, but we all know it won't take very long, so I'm acting preemptively.'

That's where that C.U.P.P.A repair programme we were musing about could come in. Because real Jarvis always felt better after a cup of tea.

I imagine he'd be incredibly judgmental and giving the vocal equivalent to a side eye to everyone.

JARVIS: This does mark the fourth engine you've blown up today, sir. The fourth.
Tony: I've gone way past four before.
JARVIS: Yes, it's DEFINITELY something to be proud of. Setting off all those fire alarms, property damage, terror evoked in those who live here-
Tony: Okay, I got it, JARVIS.
JARVIS: Oh, I'm SO glad.
Steve: Wow, that's really sarcastic.
JARVIS: YOU ARE SO SMART, STEVE ROGERS.

Tony could run C.U.P.P.A, do a reboot and hopefully JARVIS will be back to his usual dry but polite self.

JARVIS: YOU ARE SO SMART, STEVE ROGERS.

Hahaha! It's like JARVIS has been waiting his whole digital life for this moment.

Thor: Your friend in the ceiling just insulted my mother. In Asgardian. I removed him from the wall for this dishonour, but he speaks still
JARVIS: Oh yeah, I can totally see why they wanted you to be the king. You're so wise and all-knowing.

I have a feeling Mjolnir is going to be making a lot of holes in a lot of walls.

He'd say it without even looking up from the computer monitor he's staring at.

I can actually see Thor being very determined and just destroying the walls of his apartment.

Tony: Advanced beings my ass, he can't even figure out how a speaker works.
Thor: What did you say?
Tony: Nothing. Looking hot there, Hercules. Keep swinging.

I feel like if Q ever joined them, it would be him and Bruce quietly snarking without looking at each other while Tony bounced around the lab, building things.

I thought Bruce and Nemi might show up in this fic I'm working on, but they've decided to go out for the day, so it's just Steve and Tony. But Peggy and Takeo decided to pop in for a mention, so everything's on track in terms of me not knowing what the hell I'm doing.

Why is Whishaw!Q so easily crossoverable?

Good to know things are as they should be. :D

Shess just knocked over a table full of stuff that Howard and Dejeni were working on. Howard is annoyed but Dejeni is a little "Whee! More broken things to unbroken!"

I think there's something about fandoms with international espionage components that make them really easy to crossover. Torchwood, Sherlock, etc. It's very easy to justify putting one character somewhere else if the world in peril and that character usually unimperils it.

Also Q is very adorable. There's that.

Mim thinks that Tony should try to go to Peggy's when they run away, in my other fic. Tony thinks she'll rat them out, though, so I don't know if she'll appear there either. Though Howard might call her for some advice.

Daemons everywhere! Headcanon all over the place.

Hee, that sounds like Mim in my Bruce and Nemi fic. 'Breaking stuff is the best part!'

Howard and Tony and Dejeni and Mim keep echoing each other in my running away fic, without my meaning for them to do it. Which is sort of sweet.

Poor Shess, she's probably very big and not very good at knowing where she is in the universe.

D'aw. They're so alike. That probably contributed to them not always getting along.

It's post-being caught by Zola so she's a little skittish about a lot of things. I do have this image of her trying to be careful by tucking her paws in as much as possible. At least, she decided to do this after the table incident.

Yeah, definitely. Howard seemed to be as incapable of expressing feelings as Tony is, or Tony was before he started to come out of himself a little bit and take a bigger interest in the world. I sort of have Howard as someone who is so smart and understands so promptly that he jumps ahead to the next thing and skips steps and assumes everyone is with him, even though he hasn't actually explained what he's thinking. And it sort of extends to his personal life, of being so busy and on the go and thinking he's expressed that he's proud of Tony or that it should be implicit, but actually completely failed to. And because Tony is a kid, he can't pick up on the more subtle cues, the way a grown-up could.

So, "I obviously sent you to this school because you're so bright that this is the only place where you might not be bored out of your mind" is interpreted by Tony as "I don't want you here, nobody cares enough to let you live with them, we're sending you away because you're a problem".

Oh, man. And Howard's tendency to skip several steps and leaving people in his dust was probably not helped out by his drinking.

Issie and her running. Next to smashing doors this is her favorite thing.

He was probably one of those people who was bright enough to be brilliant even when he wasn't at his best, so he didn't get a lot of flack about it from people, or the level of flack he should have gotten.

There might have been some level of 'if I just concentrate on working, I can leave this for Tony, I can look after him this way, he won't have to worry about anything' and leaving Maria to do more of the actual caregiving, as well.

Howard and Bucky have a conversation in my fic about what their plans are post-war. They get into a discussion about children to which Howard's like, "Uh no. I'd be lousy with kids." and gets advised that he better find a wife who'd be great mom. So it sort of worked out for Howard. Sort of.

Now that both Steve and Bucky got the serum, Issie and Shess can run for hours on end. Sam and Letty can subtly give them the finger when they keep passing them.

I'm trying to develop my Maria a little, though I don't think she'll be appearing in this story. She's in California, working on a Thing That Conveniently Places Her out of the Plot.

Ah, yes. Thing That Conveniently Places People Out of the Plot is always helpful.

I think I saw that fanart. Or at least a fanart that depicted that. I hope Sam either appears in Age of Ultron or the next Cap movie. There's some more snark just waiting to come out, I think.

I thought I read somewhere that Falcon was confirmed as appearing in Avengers 2, but I could be mistaken. I really liked Sam, I thought he was a good, interesting, warm character. He could have very easily been a sidekick, but he felt like a real person who had a life when he wasn't onscreen.

Here's the fanart.

I'm off to bed. Nice chatting with you!
