Tom Hiddleston Sings ‘Move It on Over’ in ‘I Saw the Light’ First Clip

Tom Hiddleston as country music legend Hank Williams is a pretty enticing proposition. The Brit takes on the iconic role in Marc Abraham’s “I Saw the Light,” which is set for a world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week.

Hiddleston debuted the first clip from the film himself via Twitter. It features Williams at a 1947 recording session of “Move It on Over” before transitioning to life at home with wife Audrey Mae (Elizabeth Olsen, who I hear is also exceptional in the film).

Abraham is best known for his work as a producer on films such as “Bring It On,” “Spy Game” and “The Last Exorcism.” He’s seven years removed from his directorial debut, “Flash of Genius,” another biopic.

Hiddleston can also be seen in Toronto selection “High-Rise” from director Ben Wheatley. He’ll be hitting theaters next month with Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak.”

Check out the “I Saw the Light” clip below.
