Here's why Tom Hiddleston is pretending to be a rodent on Twitter

Tom Hiddleston plays Shakespeare charades on Twitter

Happy Friday! To celebrate, here's a video of Tom Hiddleston pretending to be a rodent.

If you're confused, this is not for a new role. It turns out the 35-year-old, who is currently filming 'Thor Ragnarok' with Chris Hemsworth, is putting his acting skills to good use this morning, playing #charadespeare on Twitter (that's charades with Shakespeare plays, if you didn't know).

The actor is no stranger to the world of the Bard, having starred in productions of 'Cymbeline', 'Coriolanus' and 'Othello', as well as BBC series 'The Hollow Crown'. No spoilers, but he takes on a new play in this minute-long clip.

Hiddles is squeaking and tweaking his imaginary whiskers to promote free theatre tickets for under 25s at Covent Garden theatre Donmar Warehouse. He was nominated by the theatre's artistic director Josie Rourke and in turn Hiddleston has nominated actor Hadley Fraser, who he performed with at the Donmar in 2013.

This has the potential to go viral before our very eyes. Watch. This. Space.
