Tom Hiddleston excited to play Robert Capa in biopic

Los Angeles, April 19 (IANS) Tom Hiddleston is excited to play the lead role in an upcoming biopic, based on late Jewish-Hungarian combat photographer Robert Capa. The actor plans to visit “the places he stayed at”.

Hiddleston, 32, is excited to essay the role of Capa, known for covering the legendary wars – Second Sino-Japanese war, Spanish Civil War, World War II, and 1948 Arab-Israeli war.

“I look at his life and see it in heroic terms – a Hungarian kicked out of Hungary for writing against fascism, he moved to Germany where he was kicked out for being Jewish; then he moved to France and from there began a life-long commitment to make a stand against forces of fascism,” quoted Hiddleston as saying.

“As a man he was fantastically charismatic, dynamic, vigorous, exciting and energetic, too. I plan to go to the places he lived, those places he visited, read books about him, study his photographs and, crucially, learn how he took them,” he added.
