It’s a fast paced thrill ride to adventure that never ends! (Seriously, it never ends- this is just the first installment of our opinionated review of Thor: Ragnarok! Part 2 coming soon!)

So sorry, Amber — NOT!

Amber Heard keeps losing — this time her lawyers asked for the verdict to be thrown out in Johnny’s recent judgement against her. She cited all sorts of reasons, including claims that one of the jurors was not who they were supposed to be. Ultimately, the judge decided that none of her claims had merit, which means she’s still on the hook for the $10 million she owes Johnny.

Karma is a real bitch.

Stay Tuned!

Our recording studio is undergoing some renovations but we’ll be back soon and will once again resume our weekly podcasting schedule!

Degrees of Separation

I’ve been promising this post for a while, and I do apologise for taking so long to present it.

I have said, often, that Johnny Depp and Tom Hiddleston have to know each other… and I would love to know how they get along. They share views on acting-

Hiddleston Quote:   “(Acting) is always about, somehow, finding a part of myself that is relevant, and then turning the volume up on that particular part. So, I am all of the characters I’ve ever played, and I am none of them, at the same time.”

Depp Quote: “With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it’s just not acting. It’s lying.”

-Among other things, but they seem to be polar opposites most of the time. But, they say opposites attract…

Anyway, the biggest reason I say they must know each other, despite never having acted together, never interviewed together, and never really having been seen together (I have two pictures of them together. Two. Only two.), is because they have so many mutual friends and co-stars in common. This is the start of my list of common factors between Johnny Depp and Tom Hiddleston.

Robert Downey Jr. – RDJ and Johnny Depp go all the way back to before RDJ landed in jail and treatment centers in 2000-2001. They have remained friends through everything, and RDJ was one of the first to speak out in Johnny’s defense against Heard’s outrageous lies. These two are true blue- always. (Try saying that three times fast!)

RDJ and Tom Hiddleston met while filming Avengers, from everything I could discover. They are close enough as collegues go- Rob is comfortable enough and friendly enough with Tom to rag him about his well publicized affair with Taylor Swift, so I could definitely see Robert Downey Jr as being the common denominator that would bring our two favorite actors together.

Mia Wasikowska – Here’s another pretty face that is simply too lucky to be allowed. Actually, Mia is an amazing actor, among other things, and is talented enough to land, not one, but TWO co-star slots with each of our favorites. With Tom Hiddleston, she landed the role of Ava, the “little vampire sister” of Eve (played by Tilda Swinton), a Bohemian vampire in love with Adam (Tom Hiddleston), a rock and roll vampire who really is tired of the whole scene in “Only Lovers Left Alive”, which debuted in 2013, as well as giving Edith Cushing life in 2015’s “Crimson Peak”, where she is lucky enough to rate a very steamy love scene with her on-screen husband, Sir Thomas Sharpe, played by— you guessed it— Tom Hiddleston.

Her movies with Johnny Depp are a bit diffrerent, to say the least. Gone is the sinfully sexy, tall, dark and handsome Johnny we all so love to see. In his place, a kaleidoscope-eyed asylum escapee, who you realize isn’t half as crazy as the world is. Yes, I’m talking about the Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010, and “Alice Through the Looking Glass” in 2016. Mia, of course, steals both shows as Alice.

Paul Bettany – Paul and Johnny met on the set of 2010’s “The Tourist”, where Johnny plays Frank Tupelo, a tourist who gets caught up in romance, intrigue, danger, spies and mobsters while on holiday in France, and Paul plays the hard nosed MI6 agent set on capturing a billion dollar theif. They bonded instantly, it appears, and went on to do “Transcendance” together in 2014 and “Mortdecai” in 2015. Paul and Johnny are so close that authorities went through Paul’s phone looking for evidence against Johnny in the recent Depp vs Heard defamation trial.

Paul is also known as Iron Man’s voice in the ceiling, JARVIS, and later as Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is unclear how well Paul and Tom know each other, but working on the same movies means they DO know each other.

Check back later for more common factors between our favorite two men: Johnny Depp and Tom Hiddleston, unless, of course, they remove all supposition by either starring in a movie together or posting on social media, again, together.

Instead of Tom, Just Call Him DADDY!

I had to check and double check to make sure I was seeing what I thought I saw, and reading what I thought I read… since I’m about two screwdrivers in I decided to read it a third time, and….. Nope. The words absolutely have not changed.

After dating Tom Hiddleston for three years, through the pandemic, among other things, Ms Zawe Ashton was seen sporting an absolutely stunning diamond ring on the third finger of her left hand at the 2022 BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards, which she attended with a rather pleased and slightly stunned-looking Tom, but it was a further 3 months before Tom finally confirmed the engagement on June 14, 2022.

And now, less than two weeks later… You guessed it! Zawe is sporting a rather large, and impossible to hide, baby bump at the New York premier of her new movie, Mr. Malcom’s List, just this evening. So there you have it, you heard it here first…

And may we, here at Deppheads and Hiddlestoners (Jenn, Kary, Barry, and Fae), be among the first to congradulate the happy couple. To a happy marriage and a healthy child(ren)! Wishing Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton the best on all of their exciting news!

Check out the podcast next week for an in depth look at Zawe.

Hiddleston, Tom Hiddleston

On other movie news, it has long been rumored that Tom’s in the running to be the next James Bond since Daniel Craig has stepped down from that lofty pedestal, right along side such names as Idris Elba, Rege-Jean Page and Tom Hardy. Hiddleston fans, such as myself, hold our collective breath and keep our fingers and toes crossed that our beloved Brit will indeed be awarded that honor most high.

It is obvious to me, though, from a 2021 interview with Tom on the subject of 007, if the actors know which one has been chosen, they are certainly not telling. Tom is quoted as saying, “What can I say that you don’t already know? It’s interesting in itself that I’ve suddenly become very aware of what I’m saying, is it not? Because there’s something about what I’m saying that becomes the story. Not for you, but for the world outside. Whatever I say, I’ve found generated more questions.”

Sounds like a lot of misdirection and slickly avoiding the question, to me. Idris Elba was a bit more straightforward, not about whether the part had been offered to him, but that he wouldn’t take it if it was. “I am 50 this year.” He’s quoted as saying. “Let’s say you sign up for three films – nobody wants to see Bond giving chase or beating up bad guys when he’s 60. I am probably too old to take on the role now.”

I beg to differ, Idris. Does the name Sean Connery ring any bells? Anyway, best of luck to Tom. For a British actor, Bond is the pinnacle, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving!
