Tom Hiddleston Recites Shakespeare In Flashy New Jaguar ART OF VILLAINY Promo FilmStage superstar and rising screen standout Tom Hiddleston leads a new short film promoting luxury car brand Jaguar titled THE ART OF VILLAINY and a new look at the actor in action suavely reciting Shakespeare while manning a sports car is now available to view.

Hiddleston commands a cool look in a dark suit driving a sleek white Jaguar in the brand new promotional film which boasts a memorable reading of RICHARD II as well as Hiddleston's own idiosyncratic take on it.

"They say Brits play the best villains. But, what makes a great villain?" Hiddleston alluringly posits following a playing of a famous RICHARD II monologue.

Following that, he displays a dextrous way with the wheel - and much more, as the case may be.

Of course, Hiddleston recites some Shakespeare himself, too, before the final reel.

At the close: "This England, it's all mine," he says with a villainous laugh - and appropriately so, given the gist of the promotional campaign.

Of note, Jaguar's THE ART OF VILLANY was directed by Mark Jenkinson with music by Chris Green.

More information on Jaguar's THE ART OF VILLAINY is available at the official site here.
