Looks like the upcoming Disney Plus series Loki has a new cast member -- actor Owen Wilson, according to an exclusive report from CNET sister site ComicBook.com on Friday.
Wilson is best known for comedic roles in the movies Zoolander, The Royal Tenenbaums and Wedding Crashers. While Wilson's character is still unknown, his background as a comedic actor he could well mean he'll by providing some laughs to the new series. The ComicBook.com report says Wilson's role will be "major."
Wilson joins actor Tom Hiddleston, who will reprise his role as
brother and Asgaard's trickster Loki. Funnily enough, in 2013 during an interview Hiddleston did a rather uncanny impression of Wilson acting as Loki.
Work officially began on the upcoming
series Loki in December, and on Monday, Hiddleston posted a hilarious behind-the-scenes video on his Instagram to show fans how his training is going.
Loki will launch on Disney Plus in the spring of 2021. The series was originally announced in November 2018.
