Tom Hiddleston is an Early Man

Tom Hiddleston has joined Eddie Redmayne in the new animated adventure from the creator of Wallace and Gromit.

Hiddleston is providing the voice for Lord Nooth, governor of the Bronze Age town – a money-loving tyrant and rival to the film’s hero, Dug (Eddie Redmayne).

Director Nick Park said of the casting: “Tom is a wonderful actor and it’s so thrilling to see him bring our comic villain to life with his amazing talent, energy and enthusiasm.

“It is a great privilege to work with Tom and I’m so excited to see his character Lord Nooth emerge on screen!”

Hiddleston added: “I’ve been a fan of Nick Park and Aardman for as long as I can remember, and am incredibly honoured to be working with Nick and the team on this adventure.

I’m thrilled to be able to breathe some semblance of life into this hysterical villain and to work with Eddie for the first time. Early Man made me laugh out loud when I read it. Lord Nooth is larger than life in every respect. I can’t wait for audiences to meet him”.

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Earky Man tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.
