Hi, I'm Tom Hardy. You Haven't Forgotten About Me, Have You?

Hey guys, I have’t heard from you in a while; thought I’d check in. I’m still out here, doing my thing—playing with babies and dogs…

But that doesn’t mean I’m not busy with work, you know—“practicing my craft”—as they say. You heard about this movie I did; Locke? It’s written and directed by Steven Knight, who also wrote Eastern Promises, Redemption and Dirty Pretty Things. I’ve got stellar co-stars; Andrew Scott, Ruth Wilson, Olivia Colman, Tom Holland, Ben Daniels…well here, watch my new trailer:

There were a whole lot of words over it, but trust me, it’s good. I play a man with a great life—dream job, beautiful family, etc.—everything’s going my way, until I get a call on my mobile. Shit hits…well, you know. Speaking of Steven Knight, did you know he also created and writes the British gangster series Peaky Blinders? I only bring it up because I’ve joined. That’s right, I’ll be right there alonside Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, Helen McCrory, Iddo Goldberg, and my own fine fiancé, Charlotte Riley (Edge of Tomorrow, Wuthering Heights).

Me, in hats. That usually works out well for me, I think.

There’s another film I did called The Drop, written by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River, Shutter Island) and directed by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead); I play an ex-con trying to go straight. After I rescue a pit bull I found in the trash, the dog’s owner—who just happens to be a mob boss—comes after me, and shit goes downhill from there. This one’s a little sad for me too; it co-stars James Gandolfini as my cousin, Marv. Here are a couple of photos just released:

You probably already know I’ve got Child 44,

and Rocket Man on the way, right?

Rumor has it I might be playing both Kray brothers in an upcoming biopic directed by Brian Helgeland (42, L.A. Confidential), but I can’t confirm or deny that yet.

I guess that’s about it for what I’m up to. Well, there’s this…

That’s pretty much an ongoing project.


Love,

Tom
