Tom Hiddleston returns to the British stage
Tom Hiddleston, star of Thor and Avengers Assemble, returns to the stage at London’s tiny Donmar Warehouse in an autumn season that also features Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine.
Tom Hiddleston, the British actor who has become a global star thanks to his performances as Loki in Thor and Avengers Assembler, will return to the stage at London’s tiny Donmar Warehouse in this autumn’s production of Coriolanus.
Taking the role of the autocratic Roman general in one of Shakespeare’s most visceral tragedies is a homecoming for Hiddleston in more ways than one since he made his name in Shakespeare, breaking through in Cheek by Jowl’s production of Cymbeline and giving a brilliant performance as Cassio in the Donmar’s own production of Othello in 2007. He more recently starred as Henry V in BBC Two’s 2012 award-winning Shakespearean adaptation, The Hollow Crown.
The new production of Coriolanus will be directed by the Donmar’s artistic director Josie Rourke, and will be broadcast live into cinemas on 30 January 2014 in partnership with National Theatre Live. It also features Mark Gatiss as Menenius.
In a strong autumn season, Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine will star in a revival of Arnold Wesker’s Roots, playing working class farm girl Beattie Bryant in the play, which is set in rural Norfolk in 1958 and will be directed by James Macdonald.
The season opens with a new play by Nick Payne, The Same Deep Water As Me, directed by John Crowley. Payne, who wrote the prize winning Constellations, has based the production around a pair of personal injury laywers from Luton. The cast includes Olivier award winner Nigel Lindsay, Daniel Mays and Monica Dolan.
I guess we have hope of getting it on disc.
Having recently fallen in love with Call the Midwife, I’m painfully excited to see this.
THIS IS THE BEST RESPONSE I’VE GOTTEN YET
what if cars didnt have wheels but had mechanical feet so you just saw cars running around everywhere
It would give running someone over a whole new meaning
a hit and run
running a red light
do you ever feel like you’re just sort of
like all your friends go out and do things and get into relationships and like people that like them back and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone
like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything
(Benedict can whip me with a riding crop any day he wants…)

I just want people to rape my ask box with fun things is that too much to ask?

Dad jokes: Stepping it up since I was a child.
Bikers Against Child Abuse make abuse victims feel safe
These tough bikers have a soft spot: aiding child-abuse victims. Anytime, anywhere, for as long as it takes the child to feel safe, these leather-clad guardians will stand tall and strong against the dark, and the fear, and those who seek to harm.
The 11-year-old girl hears the rumble of their motorcycles, rich and deep, long before she sees them. She chews her bottom lip, nervous.
They are coming for her.
The bikers roar into sight, a pack of them, long-haired and tattooed, with heavy boots and leather vests, and some riding double. They circle the usually quiet Gilbert cul-de-sac, and the noise pulls neighbors from behind slatted wood blinds and glossy front doors.
One biker stops at the mouth of the street, parks in the middle of the road and stands guard next to his motorcycle, arms crossed.
The rest back up to the curb in front of the girl’s house, almost in formation, parking side by side. There are 14 motorcycles in all, mostly black and shiny chrome. The bikers rev their engines again before shutting them down.
The sudden silence is deafening. The girl’s mother takes her hand.
The leader of this motorcycle club is a 55-year-old man who has a salt-and-pepper Fu Manchu and wears his hair down past his shoulders. He eases off his 2000 Harley Road King and approaches the little girl.
He is formidable, and intimidating, and he knows it. So he bends low in front of the little girl and puts out his hand, tanned and weathered from the sun and wind: “Hi, I’m Pipes.”
“Nice to meet you,” she says softly, her small hand disappearing in his.
The unruly-looking mob in her driveway is there to help her feel safe again. They are members of the Arizona chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse International, and they wear their motto on their black leather vests and T-shirts: “No child deserves to live in fear.”
I’ll admit - this made me tear up. I’d never heard of BACA before. Now I want to find the WA and OR chapters, and give them some money. I can’t give them a lot - I live hand-to-mouth - but they deserve my support. Surviving abuse is not - *not* - easy. These bikers have taken on a nearly-impossible task, struggling to make it a little easier. Amazing. Absolutely wonderful.
The bikers aren’t looking for trouble. They are there so the kids don’t feel so alone, or so powerless. Pipes recalls going to court with an 8-year-old boy, and how tiny he looked on the witness stand, his feet dangling a foot off the floor.
“It’s scary enough for an adult to go to court,” he says. “We’re not going to let one of our little wounded kids go alone.”
In court that day, the judge asked the boy, “Are you afraid?” No, the boy said.
Pipes says the judge seemed surprised, and asked, “Why not?”
The boy glanced at Pipes and the other bikers sitting in the front row, two more standing on each side of the courtroom door, and told the judge, “Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
This is the most beautiful, awe-inspiring thing I’ve read in a long time. I wanna write a book about these guys, Jesus Christ. Where’s the blockbuster movie about these badasses?
I’m, honestly, sobbing.
What wonderful, kindhearted people. Once again just proves that you can’t judge a book by its cover.
((I come from a family of bikers. And I just have to say that BACA is an amazing organization. They often participate in rides and fundraisers to benefit local children’s charities, as well as the things mentioned above. This is their website if anyone wants to visit their faq to learn more about their cause :) ))
Always reblog; cry every time.
