The British actor recalled his audition to snag the God of Thunder role during his appearance on The Tonight Show. Host Jimmy Fallon showed the audition clip where Tom is seen sporting long blonde hair and he even wielded the Mjolnir. Apparently, he was a worthier fit for the mischievous Loki and we all know the rest. Check out his reaction here:
