Jimmy Kimmel and Tom Hiddleston shared their thoughts on Matt Damon appearing as Loki in Thor: Ragnarok.
One of the funniest moments from Thor: Ragnarok was when Thor made his way back to Asgard only to discover that Loki was being heralded as a hero in sloppily put-together production. The God of Mischief was played by none other than Oscar-winning actor Matt Damon. The scene was particuarly hilarious because of Matt Damon’s cringe and over-the-top acting that made the entire ordeal a laugh out loud fest. While promoting the upcoming Loki series, Tom Hiddleston was asked by Jimmy Kimmel what he thought about Damon taking on his role.
Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon have had a decade long feud of sorts, so Kimmel can swinging right off the bat roasting Damon’s role in Thor: Ragnarok.
“Were you disappointed when you found out he would be playing your character?”
Tom Hiddleston responded with a genuine but hilarious answering, playing along with Jimmy Kimmel’s negative sentiments towards Matt Damon.
“Loki, as we know, contains multitudes, and somehow contains Matt Damon, even in that suit … It’s kind of like Matt’s trying to bump me from my own character.”
Matt Damon is set to return as the Loki actor in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Unforutnately, Tom Hiddleston won’t be joining Damon as the OG Loki revealed that his time in the Thor films has come to an end.
