It's hard to picture lithe, dark-haired Tom Hiddleston as the blond, heavily muscled God of Thunder, but the British actor actually auditioned first for the title role in 'Thor,' not his lesser-known brother, Loki.

Then again, the pale Goth look Hiddleston rocks as the God of Mischief couldn't be more different from Hiddleston's usual appearance. "Usually, I look like Gene Wilder," the actor confessed of his naturally light, curly hair.

Considering how well he fits the role of Loki, the actor -- whose credits include the series 'Wallender' with 'Thor' director Kenneth Branagh -- might consider keeping those darker locks.

Hiddleston talked to Moviefone about being faster than Thor, how's he the smartest god in the room, and how that iconic horned helmet is a lot like the Batsuit.
