Before getting ready to wow audiences as the villain in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and after impressing critics in INCEPTION, Tom Hardy is starring in a spy thriller called TINKER, TAILOR, SOLIDER, SPY. The film is about a hunt for a spy set at the height of the Cold War. Hardy will be playing Tricky Ricky Tarr who is a British spy. Today we get our first look at a shirtless Tom Hardy in character while filming in Istanbul. With all those tattoos, he reminds me of his character in BRONSON.
Hardy was actually the second choice to play this role and he stepped in after Michael Fassbender dropped out to do X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. Along with Tom Hardy, the film stars Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Ciaran Hands, Jared Harris and Bendedict Cumberbatch. Tomas Alfredsson (LET THE RIGHT ONE IN) will be directing.
