Tom Hardy is the man. He’s blossomed to become one of Hollywood’s leading men, and his roles are always memorable. Aside from Leonardo DiCaprio, Hardy was the most memorable character in Inception. Hardy’s Bane was an absolute beast in The Dark Knight Rises, and the actor shined alongside Leo once again in The Revenant. Hardy’s take on Venom may be getting all the attention at the moment, but there is one other film that the actor is working on that will grab audiences when it hits theaters.
Hardy is set to star as Al Capone in Josh Trank’s Fonzo. The film will focus on the end of Capone’s life, where he developed dementia due to years of untreated syphilis. The film will use dementia to help show a paranoid Capone that is haunted by memories of his past as he sinks into madness. A photo of Hardy as Capone hit the web last week, and the actor was barely recognizable. Now, a second photo of the aged Capone has been released, and I must say, Hardy really does commit to these roles. He looks incredible as the mobster, and his withered, old, and insane vibe can be fully felt in the new picture.
