Tom Hiddleston, Orlando Bloom, Michael Fassbender: You might think of them as serious thespians, but you’d be wrong.

We’re not sure what’s going on across the pond, but we’re on board, as it’s produced a crop of handsome and critically acclaimed stars who are also not above getting goofy.

Don’t believe us? Check out our favorite off-the-cuff moments below:

Tom Hiddleston Takes a Dance Break

While in Korea for the Thor: The Dark World press tour, the man behind Loki was asked to display a few dances moves for the gathered crowd – and boy did he deliver! Even the chair behind him couldn’t stay upright while taking it in.

Orlando Bloom Acts Out the Internet

In character as his The Lord of the Rings alter ego, Legolas, Bloom sang along to one of the web’s most popular LOTR tributes, “They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard,” a dance mix that combines the trilogy’s instrumental theme music with one of Bloom’s best known lines. Now there’s a man who loves his fans.

Michael Fassbender Does the "Twist"

While appearing on The Late Late Show in 2010, Fassbender pulled a fast one, grabbing the mic and belting out “Twist and Shout.” And there’s no Shame in his game – dude can sing!

Benedict Cumberbatch Impersonates Alan Rickman

Fans of the Harry Potter series know Rickman has a very particular way of speaking, and fans of Cumberbatch and Fallon learned last week that they’re both very good at mimicking it. So how do you decide who’s better? By having them read hip-hop lyrics. Trust us, you’ll never listen to “Gin and Juice” the same way again.

Tom Hardy Drops a Sick Beat (NSFW)

He may have lost to Batman, but The Dark Knight Rises actor could easily win a rap battle judging from what we’re hearing in this undated and slightly NSFW video, which features Hardy seemingly free-styling while carrying his then-infant son, Louis. If you need us, we’ll be applying to be his hype man.
