    Okay, so we're not going to get to see Tom Hiddleston get his country twang on as Hank Williams in I Saw the Light this month — or even this year. (Sony decided to push the biopic back to March 2016, never a great sign.) But to keep the Hiddleston love alive, we decided to celebrate him this weekend, anyway. You can binge his movies, enjoying your own Hiddlestonathon. And you never know, you might be able to find a theater still showing Crimson Peak and scare yourself silly one more time.

    We've collected 15 reasons why we think so highly of the guy who is, by the way, one of the very best actors of his generation. He can do Marvel villain, cool vampire, and callous husband with equal brilliance. He's also superhumanly charming. If you have yet to join the ranks of the Hiddlestoners, now's your chance to get your membership card. And if you need to convince a friend that he's so much more than the guy with the daddy and brother issues from Avengers, we've got you covered, too. Enjoy!

    He Can Make Thor Funny
    Whether acting as the villain or the accidental hero, Loki is the perfect foil to his monosyllabic hunk of a brother in the Marvel movies. If we met both of those guys in a bar, it would be quite difficult to decide which one to chat up.

    He Can Describe The Waltz Poetically
    Skip ahead to about one minute into this video, when Hiddleston talks about how the 19th-century Viennese dance craze involved partners smelling each other's breath, feeling each other's heat, and looking each other straight in the eyes.
