29. Tom Hardy (1977— )
Some facts I didn’t know about Tom Hardy:
1. He’s set to play Elton John in a movie called Rocketman
2. His real first name is Ed, which is unfortunate
3. At the beginning of his career (circa Black Hawk Down) he went by Thomas, which I like better. I can almost see him in a snazzy 21st-century remake of Jude The Obscure, although he’s kind of pushing it agewise to play Jude. Maybe a Return of the Native remake is in order? Clive Owen did that fifteen or so years ago, but for a Hallmark TV movie.
