Watch Tom Hiddleston perform as Hank Williams at the ‘I Saw The Light’ premiere

His Southern accent holds up pretty well, even when he's singing live.

Tom Hiddleston has three awesome-looking movies coming out over the next few months, including Crimson Peak. Yet somehow, we still haven’t reached Hiddleston saturation point.

I Saw The Light stars Hiddleston as country music icon Hank Williams, a role that required him to replicate Williams’ mid-20th century Southern accent. After the film’s premiere in Nashville this weekend, he treated the cast and crew to a live performance of some of Hank Williams’ best known songs. The accent holds up pretty well.

Turn down the charm, please, Mr. Hiddleston. This is too much.
