Tom Hardy Readies To Play Elton John

I will be honest with you. I was upset with how little chance Tom Hardy got to show his acting chops as Bane in the last Batman flick. If you have ever seen Hardy in Bronson you know the man is absolutely riveting. Good news today for Hardy fans as it was just announced the actor will be portraying Elton John in an upcoming biopic about the artist. From Bane to wearing a giant duck costume on stage and singing “Crocodile Rock”? Okay, that is kind of awesome.

USA TODAY has the story but the long and short is that the movie will be called Rocketman (off the popular Elton John song), and it will tell the story of how Elton John went from quiet little boy to pop superstar. It will focus mostly on his adult life and all the drama he has felt as a result of his sexuality and his fame. Anyone who knows Elton John knows he is as well known for going over the top as he is making great music, and it is safe to assume some of that drama will be thrown in for good measure.

Honestly, we are just excited that Tom Hardy is going to get a chance to show people he is more than a ripped physique and scary voice. Expect to be floored by his portrayal. Hardy is that good of an actor and this might finally give all the world a chance to see that.
