We'd all like to imagine Tom Hiddleston as a nice, neat, chiseled gentleman, so forgive him if "I Saw the Light" asked Hiddleston to be the very opposite.
In "Flash of Genius" director Marc Abraham's new film, which premiered at last year's Toronto Film Festival, Hiddleston plays Hank Williams, the troubled country legend who wrote such songs as "Hey, Good Lookin'" and "Your Cheatin' Heart." Williams struggled with alcoholism and infidelity, as evidenced in this exclusive clip, where his first wife, Audrey (Elizabeth Olsen), derides his condition with his cold mother (Cherry Jones) while Williams performs "Honky Tonkin'." (Don't worry, Hiddleston is still plenty chiseled.)
"I Saw the Light" opens March 25.
