Hank Williams III claimed that Matthew McConaughey should have been cast as the late US country crooner in the upcoming biopic, rather than the Thor star.
The 41-year-old singer, who's also known as Hank 3, said that producers should have cast the Texas-born star because Matthew "represents the South, both in movies and real life" and singled out his Oscar-winning performance in The Dallas Buyers Club to prove that the actor has the right acting chops for the role.
British actor Tom, who has shared a picture of himself in character on Twitter, will show off his singing and guitar skills as Hank in a film about his life called I Saw The Light.
Marc Abraham wrote the script and will direct the film about Hank's rise to fame and life, which is based on a biography by Colin Escott.
Hank - known for hits like Your Cheatin' Heart and Hey Good Lookin' - was considered to be one of the most important country music singer-songwriters. He died from heart failure in 1953 at the age of 29.
Shooting on I Saw The Light is due to start in Louisiana later this year.
