I Saw the Light

Gather round for your first look at Tom Hiddleston as a classic country western singer. In the upcoming film I Saw the Light, Hiddleston plays Hank Williams, who only lived to the age of 29 but "in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music." Sony Pictures Classics has just debuted the first official photo from the film, which is opening in theaters this November. I Saw the Light is written and directed by Marc Abraham, and in addition to Hiddleston stars Elizabeth Olsen, Cherry Jones, Bradley Whitford, Maddie Hasson, Wren Schmidt. We hope to see more from this soon, as it could be one to watch.

Here's the image from I Saw the Light which resembles many of the classic B&W photos of Hank Williams.
