First Look At Tom Hiddleston In CORIOLANUSNotable stage and screen superstar Tom Hiddleston essays one of Shakespeare's most difficult and dynamic roles as part of the new West End mounting of the historical tragedy CORIOLANUS at London's famed Donmar Warehouse and the first look at the actor in action is now available.

Hiddleston clearly copiously lends his commanding presence and sophisticated demeanor to the violent and vicious drama if the new shots are any indication of his performance.

The official synopsis of CORIOLANUS as per the Donmar Warehouse is as follows: "When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens' hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people."

Additionally, CORIOLANUS will be filmed and broadcast as part of National Theatre Live on January 30, 2014.

Hiddleston previously starred in Shakespeare's OTHELLO and CYMBELINE onstage, as well as in BBC's THE HOLLOW CROWN film series last year, portraying Prince Hal in HENRY IV Parts 1 and 2 as well as HENRY V.
