Tom Hardy

I only got to base this actor from the horrendous ST: Nemesis. (Okay, the action sequences were entertaining, but....)

Hardy, now, is a lot bigger than Shinzon.

I recently saw Inception (good, but not as good as the hype made it out to be) and I thought Tom Hardy was pretty much a 'bad-ass.'* He also acted somewhat as the cool, comedy relief.

I think Hardy was also in 'Layer Cake' with Daniel Craig; and he is up for 'Max' in the forthcoming 'Mad Max' film.**

*This also goes for Joseph-Gordon Levitt, and for Leonardo DiCaprio...

**Mods feel free to move this to the appropriate forum if this forum is not.

Re: Tom Hardy

In Nemesis he was a great actor constrained by a crap role. Probably because they tried to take too much from Khan, without realising that what makes Khan is his over the top, B-movie charm.

Re: Tom Hardy

Yeah, my problems with Shinzon have little to do with the actor.

Inception was a great deal of fun...I haven't looked at reviews yet so can't comment on whether it's being over-hyped (only saw it last night).

Re: Tom Hardy

I liked his performance. As a villain he was waaay less hammy than say John Simm's portrayal of the Master in Dr Who.

Yes, certainly his "break-out" role.

Re: Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy got me to watch a Wuthering Heights mini. I figured if he could make something of Shinzon...

Disclaimer: I hate the book with a passion.

His Heathcliff, however, was inspired. I now own the DVD. He breathed life into that fetid abortion of a character.

Hardy was never the problem with Nemesis.

The problem was his dialog was atrocious and he doesn't look anything like Stewart.

Re: Tom Hardy

When I first saw him in Inception, I recognized his voice and his lips, but I couldn't figure out where I saw him before. When I realized it was Hardy, I was shocked. He was so skinny and young in Nemesis, and I guess he beefed up for Bronson. He looked completely different. He voice seems to have gotten gravelly. I wonder if he smokes.

Oh, and I guess the hair makes a difference, too.

Re: Tom Hardy

I initially thought (not with confidence) that he was David Wenham.

Tom Hardy was pretty much the best thing that happened to Nemesis.
