Tom Hardy

Watching "Child 44". Tom Hardy as a Russian. He was great in "Lawless". And great in "Legend" where he played twins and seriously seemed like two different people. Gotta say, he's a front runner for one of the most diverse actors around IMO. So who's yours? What actor do you think is actually a good ACTOR and not just a pretty face?

I like Hardy but he seems to play a lot of the same character..... pretty much the same exact character in The Revenant, Peaky Blinders and Taboo.

Daniel Day Lewis is probably the current guy that no matter what he makes I'll go see it. Maybe a step below for me would be Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton and i suppose some others.

He has always been one of my favorite actors. His best work in my opinion was Warrior. One of my favorite movies.

Bronson is my favorite movie of his. Was also good in Legend, especially as the gay brother who was funny as hell

Christian Bale is the best actor alive though

No actor man crushes here. I'll let slidebi lead this discussion, very fitting topic for him.

Hardy was great as Bane IMO.

Christian Bale is phenomenal in my opinion. He had me convinced he was on crack for the role of Dicky Eklund in The Fighter.

Out of the Furnace, American Hustle, Big Short, American Psycho.

And? 50 lbs of muscle is hard to add, he had chicken arms in BHD and was huge in warrior.

You really think a guy can't add a good amount of muscle over 9 years?

Most certainly a good amount but you have to admit that Hardy added an inordinate amount. Most humans can work out like mad men and not look like Hardy did in warrior.

Maybe not your average Joe, but a movie star who is committed to his job and has access to elite nutritionists and fitness experts can.

Remember Barry Bonds? He was bigger than Hardy was in BHD and smaller than him in Warrior. Point being he was a known steroid user and still didn't get as big as Hardy. Believe what you want, but I would say he had some pharmacological assistance

What? You realize Hollywood uses various tricks to make people appear bigger or more ripped than they are? Hardy was never as big as you ate thinking.

Sounds like zeeman has trouble building muscle mass, probably low-t.

Why yes I have, have you ever seen the transformation of Barry Bonds? Most pro wrasslers? Russian athletes? To suggest that an actor wouldn't take steroids if he wanted to get bigger parts is na´ve. Hardy did bit parts until he grew some.
