Watch Tom Hiddleston Do a Classic Robert De Niro Impression, in Front of De Niro

5 October 2015 4:25 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

That Loki is impressive as hell. Tom Hiddleston was on "The Graham Norton Show" alongside Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, and Kenneth Branagh -- what a great lineup! -- and the conversation turned to impressions.

Tom Hiddleston stole the show, and started his mimic-fest by doing an impression of Owen Wilson from "Midnight in Paris." Tom said he's been made to do impressions of his "Avengers" co-stars, and admitted a Christopher Walken impression is easy ... but pretty much irresistible, so he did that too. Then he braved a De Niro impression, on the same couch as De Niro.

Tom said he's memorized pages of the "Heat" script and re-enacted a scene, acknowledging that De Niro would be familiar with it, since he was there, shooting the 1995 scene with Al Pacino. It's kind of hilarious to see Tom explain the scene as if he is the expert, but he's self-deprecating about it and it's very charming, »

See Hiddleston's De Niro!

3 October 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Tom Hiddleston's best celebrity impressions reign continues.

This time, the "Thor" star upped his game by impersonating Robert De Niro, while sitting just feet from the Oscar-winning actor.

Both performers were guests on the UK's "The Graham Norton Show" on Friday when host Graham asked Tom perform a few of his famed impressions.

Beginning with Owen Wilson, Tom then treated the crowd to his best Christopher Walken voice before launching into a recreation of his favorite scene from De Niro's 1995 classic, "Heat."

Watch Tom Hiddleston Win Over Robert de Niro with His Impersonation

3 October 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Perhaps you don't know this about Thor star Tom Hiddleston, but he's great at impersonating fellow celebrities. That should come as no shock after watching him fully transform into country legend Hank Williams in I Saw the Light. If he wasn't busy building a career as an Oscar-worthy actor, he might have a shot at being the next Rich Little. On the The Graham Norton Show he got to show off some of his skills. And he couldn't pass up the opportunity to break out one of his better routines, especially with the subject of his impersonation sitting on the couch beside him.

Tom Hiddleston and Robert De Niro appeared on the The Graham Norton Show couch together earlier this week. And in what could have been an awkward exchange, Tom Hiddleston broke out his own Bobby De Niro facial ticks and accents. And the whole thing is nothing short of amazing. »

Tom Hiddleston’s Robert De Niro Impression Gets Round of Applause From Robert De Niro (Video)

2 October 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Robert De Niro appears to approve of Tom Hiddleston‘s impersonation of him. The “Thor” star, who will next be seen on the big screen in Guillermo del Toro‘s “Crimson Peak,” performed a re-enactment of his favorite scene between De Niro and Al Pacino in Michael Mann‘s 1995 crime drama “Heat” — and played both actors’ parts — while appearing on “The Graham Norton Show.” “It’s an expression of admiration, just to be clear,” Hiddleston said before cracking up the audience with his impressions, which also included Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken.

Tom Hiddleston Does His Robert De Niro Impression for Robert De Niro

2 October 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Whew, what a charmer that Loki is. Tom Hiddleston joined Kenneth Branagh and The Intern co-stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro on The Graham Norton Show, which became an opportune moment for the host to ask Hiddleston to bring out his canon of impressions, which include Christopher Walken, Owen Wilson, and, of course, Robert De Niro. Not only does Hiddleston do De Niro, but he reenacts De Niro's coffee-shop scene across from Al Pacino in Michael Mann's Heat. This is definitely why the British are taking all our jobs.And if that weren't enough, he also whips out a Graham Norton impression on the spot. »

Review: She’s Funny That Way

24 September 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of She's Funny That Way, directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring Imogen Poots, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Rhys Ifans and Will Forte. Reviewed by Dr. Garth Twa. Let’s not dwell on the bad stuff. It’s a good thing to share a planet with Peter Bogdanovich. He’s made it slightly better. He was an integral part of that bubble of filmmaking— late ‘60s, early ‘70s—when American films became an art form, comparable to great American novels, comparable to the redefinition of drama by the post-war playwrights. (Sort of like what cable television is doing now.) In the late 1960s the old, classic studios were moribund: anti-trust violations had decimated the monopolistic structure of Hollywood and television had hacked the audience in half almost overnight. Also, the studios were pretty much finished after the disintegration of the Star System, where studios outright »

Robert De Niro: he's ending interviews early - so why not retire early, too?

23 September 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The veteran actor recently walked out of a Radio Times interview – if only he took the same approach to his recent run of dud films like The Intern

Be honest: how eagerly are you looking forward to The Intern? Imagine the possibilities: the plot of The Devil Wears Prada, but this time with Anne Hathaway in the Meryl Streep role, and – genius casting alert! – Robert De Niro in the junior position lately vacated by the over-promoted… Anne Hathaway! Or is The Intern just a lazy retread of The Internship, as its title alone certainly suggests? The “old guys” in The Internship, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, were just fortysomething flotsam left adrift by the tsunami-damage of the internet upon the world economy. They were still shy of midlife crisis time, still able to muster up a boner and not needing help to get off the toilet. De Niro’s character, »

Exclusive Video Interview: Peter Bogdanovich Talks She’s Funny That Way

16 September 2015 9:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The legendary Peter Bogdanovich is back behind the camera for She’s Funny That Way, his first feature film in over a decade. A throwback to the screwball comedies of old, the flick focuses on a love triangle that forms “on the set of a playwright’s new project between his wife, her ex-lover, and the call girl-turned-actress cast in the production.”

With a star studded cast, that consists of Owen Wilson, Jennifer Anniston and Imogen Poots, and a handful of genuine laughs along the way, She’s Funny That Way is an energetic and entertaining film from Bogdanovich, one that shows us he’s still got what it takes to pull of slapstick comedy. It’s also a nice breath of fresh air amidst all the blockbusters that have been piling into theatres lately.

A couple of weeks back, at the film’s La press day, we had the »

15 September 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fox is so excited by its Minority Report TV series, that its moving forward with another small-screen reboot.

The network is in the early stages of developing a series based on Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman's 2001 Bosnian War movie Behind Enemy Lines.

Homeland's Jeffrey Nachmanoff is penning the pilot script and will also direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
