There's a big difference between Bane and Elton John.. if you think Tom Hardy can only play Bane.


And people who think he can only play Bane are wrong.

You should watch him play an alcoholic homeless man with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy in "Stuart: A Life Backwards".  It's a biography.  You should watch it anyway because it's a wonderful film, but he's fantastic in it.

And then of course there's Ricki Tarr in Tinker Tailor Solider Spy, Eames in Inception, and Handsome Bob in RocknRolla.  I think he'll do a fantastic Elton John.

If anything Bane was his worst role because his voice is messed up and you can't even see his face.  It wasn't really "acting" so much as standing around looking muscular and dubbing his voice in later.

Bucky Katt: who?


It doesn't matter who he is, what matters is the movie.

If you're unable to recall the quality of Tom Hardy's acting performances, it would be very painful...

for you.

I always merely liked Tom Hardy, until I saw Bronson (clip: NSFW).  Now I think Tom Hardy is the best actor of his generation.  Can't wait for Mad Max.

kendelrio: NOT hating on Tom Hardy, I think the man is an excellent actor, but he is on the verge of LeBoeuf levels of overexposure. Every time I turn around he's in another movie! That said, he is so great at what he does that all his characters are DIFFERENT!  His performance in "Lawless" was brilliant!


If you're doing a good job, I think overexposure is less of a risk.  LeBoeuf was an issue because while the movies were blockbusters, he wasn't exactly the key to making them work.  His acting was below average at best, and the movies were generally lowest common denominator popcorn flicks.  That gets old really fast.  In addition, he's a world-class asshole in interviews.

Hardy is doing really solid movies, and he's a major piece in making them as good as they are.

Ah, you think sequins are your ally? But you merely adopted sequins; I was born in them.

He should do it in his Bane voice.
