Tom Hardy: get ready for some serious Oscar chatter regarding his role in Brian Helgeland’s Legend. We’re gonna stay ahead of the curve on this one and allow the buzz to begin. Yeah, Tom was a hot headline just a week ago due to some silliness at Toronto International Film Fest. Sadly, it detracted from how awesome he is in this film, playing twin brothers, Reggie and Ron Kray. Fortunately, everyone will see for themselves as the film hits theaters on October 2nd. Tom Hardy is totally awesome and here are 10 of the hundreds of reasons why.
10. In Band of Brothers… You Could Just Tell
Remember Tom Hardy in Band of Brothers? What? You haven’t seen Band of Brothers? You don’t dig on war movies and TV shows? Here’s the deal. There has never been anything war related that compares to Band of Brothers. If you’re a Tom Hardy fan, you must see Band of Brothers. Tom played Private John Janovec in two episodes of the award-winning miniseries, and it served as his first on screen role. When he’s on screen… it’s obvious. This kid has “it.” He’s electric. That role also proved that he looked damn good in a uniform. It thrust him into another well-received military conflict film: Black Hawk Down. There’s just something about Tom Hardy in the throes of violence. He does it is so well. But we’ll get to that momentarily.
