Is there anything this man can't do? He's already one of the coolest actors around when it comes to his acting choices, and to add to that he seems like an all around badass. I mean, look at that 5 o'clock shadow mixed in with a Tony Stark-ish goatee.
A pretty much confirmed rumor (is it still a rumor, even though it's pretty much confirmed) has it that Tom Hardy is teaming up with New Line Pictures to produce and star in the Brian Azzarello comic series which ran for a whole decade from 1999.
100 Bullets' concept revolves around the theme and act of revenge. People who are actually willing to perform that act are given a handgun, the identity of the person or people who ruined their lives, and a hundred untraceable bullets, all by Agent Graves. It's a very neo-noir type story, which is reminiscent of Men in Black and The Matrix, and adds the violence of a Tarantino film, multiplied by ten, of course.
Hardy has yet to deliver a negative performance in my eyes. I thoroughly enjoyed his treatment of Bane Connery and Max Rockat- whatever his name is... Mad Max. Tom Hardy will also be seen in this year's The Revenant, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. That film is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, who won an Oscar last year for Birdman.
Before that comes out, you can see double Tom Hardy, in Legend.
I mean, what more can I say about this dude? He's a fantastic actor, one of my favorites in the industry today. He's friggin' gorgeous, he can rock a beard like no one. He was Bane, Mad Max, and Michael Gordon Peterson. I mean, come on, this guy screams cool. The only other guy as cool as him who comes to my mind is Harrison Ford.
This venture into another comic book property seems to be high risk, but if Hardy is to play Agent Graves, take my 11 bucks. I am there! I have been meaning to buy this comic for ages now and re-read it, as it appears on numerous 'Greatest Graphic Novels of all time' lists. It's been sitting in my Amazon Wish list for a while now, and this latest piece of news just might compel me to add it to my cart. *Gasp* do I dare do such a thing?
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Tom Hardy fits the bill? Do you think this story should be adapted into a film?
Sound off below, you beautiful people.
Thanks for reading, and remember to love yourselves.
