Tom Hardy has been around for a long time, although he had mostly gone unnoticed until his breakout role in Bronson, which made him one of Christopher Nolan’s people, which of course turned him into a huge star. But before Inception, you might remember Hardy as Handsome Bob in Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla.
Maybe you saw him in Matthew Vaughn’s Layer Cake.
Maybe you spotted him in Black Hawk Down.
Or in his acting debut, Band of Brothers.
More recently, you could’ve been one of the few people — along with Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate - to see and love him in Wuthering Heights. That’s some bad hair, Tom.
If you’re not an old school Star Trek fan, however, you may have missed him in Nemesis, where he played one creepy son of a bitch.
Someone over on Reddit also unearthed his screen test from Nemesis and edited it together with his actual footage from the movie, and man oh man, Hardy has had that creepy Bane voice all along. For such a good looking guy, he is really good at playing scary f*ks.
