Let's see here - do we prefer Glasses Tom Hardy or Cigarette Tom Hardy? Business Tom Hardy or Rebel Tom Hardy? Double-breasted Tom Hardy or Single-breasted Tom Hardy? HOW TO CHOOSE?
Thankfully, we don't have to. Hardy's playing legendary British gangsters and identical twins Ronald "Ronnie" and Reginald "Reggie" Kray in the upcoming Legend, from writer/director Brian Helgeland, who directed 42 and A Knight's Tale and wrote those films as well as Payback, LA Confidential, Mystic River and a bunch more.
Here's a look at the Kray twins, who were responsible for most of the organized crime in London's East End in the '50s and '60s. They have a Hardy-esque look about them. They have those hearty Hardy noses.
For the record, I prefer Cigarette Kray Twin but Glasses Tom Hardy. This is the definitive answer, and anyone who feels otherwise is wrong.
Legend also stars Emily Browning,Christopher Eccleston, David Thewlis and Chazz Palminteri. It's due in theaters in 2015.
