Marvel Star Tom Hiddleston Does Robert De Niro Impression In The Presence Of The Acting Legend

Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers), who plays Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appeared on the Graham Norton Show and re-enacted the iconic restaurant scene from Michael Mann's 1995 thriller Heat, providing impressions of Al Pacino (The Devil's Advocate) and Robert De Niro (The Intern).

Hiddleston is well known for his celebrity impressions and began his appearance on the talk show by entertaining the lively audience with impressions of Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken. Then he segued into Heat, doing a spot-on impression of Pacino. His take on De Niro didn't sound quite right, but he did nail De Niro's facial expressions. Hiddleston was probably a tad bit nervous since the legendary actor he was imitating was sitting only a few feet away from him.

The scene itself is a classic. Most notably, it is the first time that Hollywood's finest, Pacino and De Niro, shared a scene. Yes, they both starred in The Godfather: Part II years before, but De Niro was featured in flashbacks as a young Vito Corleone, while Pacino portrayed Vito’s youngest son and newest head of the family Michael Corleone.


Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3, 2017.
