Tom Hiddleton To Play The Great Escapo In 'The Muppets... Again'?

Tom Hiddleston might be best known for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he also has a knack for comedy. The Brit got to flaunt that skill during the MTV After Hours sketch "Loki'd," so we're going to take partial responsibility for the next bit of news.

The blog called Muppets Henson reports that Hiddleston has a role in the upcoming film "The Muppets... Again." He will reportedly play The Great Escapo, and hopefully will have more than just a cameo.

This news hasn't been officially announced, but it was listed on his CV (via Bleeding Cool). If this casting rumor is indeed true, Hiddleston will have some great company on set.

Ricky Gervais is playing the lead role in "The Muppets... Again!" while Tina Fey is a Russian gulag prison guard and Ty Burrell plays a lazy Interpol agent. Christoph Waltz, Ray Liotta and Peter Serafinowicz also have unspecified roles in the Muppets' European adventure. The movie is due in theaters on March 21, 2014.
