British TV actor Tom Hiddleston got his big-screen break with a starring role in Kenneth Branagh's 'Thor,' and now he's got more to clap thunder about: He's been cast as one of the leads in Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse.'

The film, which Spielberg is working on after finishing 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn,' is adapted from Michael Morpurgo's acclaimed 1982 children's novel that follows a young man who heads to France during World war I to save his beloved horse after it was sold to the cavalry for front line duty.
