Actor Tom Hiddleston received some impromptu assistance for his recent "Best Actor" TV Choice Award. Unable to attend the event, Hiddleston instead submitted a pre-recorded acceptance speech to be played in his absence. And, during his speech, Hiddleston's "Thor: Ragnarok" co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba show up to supply some genuinely fun levity.
"Oh man, that's really awful, isn't it? What's it for?" Elba interjects while taking a look at the award. After learning the prize was for Hiddleston's work on "The Night Manager," Elba jokes, "How come 'Luther' didn't get nominated?"
Hemsworth, meanwhile, wonders why his performance on the Australian TV series "Home And Away" didn't receive the same acclaim, quipping that since the award has three stars, each actor should receive one.
The actors are all reprising their Marvel movie roles in the currently-filming "Thor" sequel, with Hemsworth once again in the title role, Hiddleston his villainous brother Loki, and Elba the Asgardian gatekeeper, Heimdall. Filming for the movie, the third in the Thor series, began in July.
The plot is still largely unknown, though producer Kevin Feige has commented that the film's events will be critical to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 3. Feige has noted that much of the film will take place in the cosmos, as opposed to Earth.
"Thor: Ragnarok" is scheduled for release on November 3, 2017, and will also feature Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban, Jeff Goldblum, and Mark Ruffalo.
