“Eventually, something will kill me. Of course it will,” Tom Hardy told Vulture about taking on challenging roles. “Eventually, I’ll be rubbish. But if I don’t take on something that I feel will eat me alive, I don’t think I’d have the compulsion to work my ass off.” It’s that laudable work ethic that has led to Hardy doing double duty in “Legend,” the new gangster flick about notorious British twin criminals the Kray Brothers. A new clip provides an opportunity to see Hardy and Hardy doing his/their thing.
Brian Helgeland (“42,” “A Knight’s Tale“; he also wrote “L.A. Confidential“) gets behind the camera for the movie, which tracks the rise of the Krays in 1960s London. And as you’ll see in the clip below, their fearlessness and unpredictability saw them rise above any challengers.
Oliver has mixed feelings on the movie when he saw it earlier this month, but you can see if two Hardys are better than one when the film opens on November 20th.
