Ultimate big screen Marvel baddie, suave Jaguar driving debonair, total driving nerd? That last part seems a bit off when one thinks of Tom Hiddleston, the latest import that the fair country of Britain has sent over to the States. Hiddleston has made quite the name for himself for being an utterly charming and smooth presence both on-screen and off-screen.

Top Gear has been known for creating some spectacularly memorable moments with its guests. Past segments have featured Hiddleston’s best friend Benedict Cumberbatch (he too had a blast during his time) and Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville.
