In a recent interview with Josh Horowitz, Tom Hiddleston opened up about saying goodbye to his role as Loki. The series came to an end after two intense seasons and left fans in a daze. During his time on Happy Sad Confused, he was asked how he would feel if he was given the role of James Bond. Much to everyone’s surprise, instead of losing his mind at playing the thrilling spy, the actor said that it would be “terrifying.”

Along with the question of playing the spy, Hiddleston was also asked about the possibility of starring in a Broadway musical. While that seemed to get a laugh out of the actor, he went on to agree that a James Bond musical would “absolutely” be “too terrifying” for him to even think of. Although the host and he were just cracking jokes, the spy world is restless without an actor at the moment.
