Today I'd rather be...
... on the pointy end of
Tom Hardy's big stick.
Hey maybe you remember those pictures of Tom Hardy buck naked on a set that recently found their way online? Well he was filming Taboo, a new mini-series for the BBC and also FX, and we've got a trailer! Watch:
Tom Hardy in a loincloth aside (and yes, big ass aside that be) I think this looks fantastic, don't you? The series is from Steven Knight, who previously worked with Tom (quite successfully, I might add) on the movie Locke (that's the one set entirely inside a car with only Hardy on-screen). Knight also wrote Eastern Promises.
Anyway Taboo is "about an adventurer who returns to Britain from Africa along with fourteen stolen diamonds to seek vengeance after the death of his father." Curious to see how exoticized they play the "white dude gone savage" stuff, with his tribal tattoos and all that jazz - I hope they are careful! And also I hope at some point he wears the top-hat with the loincloth because that's a new fetish I have discovered just this very second.
