It’s official: Tom Hiddleston’s musical talent will no longer be confined to soundstages or the passenger seat of a car. His voice is going to be heard by all when he takes on the role of country star Hank Williams in Marc Abraham’s I Saw The Light.

In honor of his new venture and also because it’s Friday, we’ve rounded up some of Hiddleston’s best musical moments (with a little dancing bonus — because if this movie doesn’t take advantage of his rhythm, it might as well be a crime):

And finally, an audio track of Hiddleston introducing Chris Hemsworth to “If I Had a Hammer”:

Oh — and here’s that rhythm we were talking about:
