Tom Hardy cast in The Dark Knight Rises

Tom Hardy, now is your time...

The British actor has been cast as Bane (THE VILLAIN) in The Dark Knight Rises.

This is career changing stuff. Bubbling under the surface for a long time in Bronson and Inception, to name but a few, the question now is - are we ready to give him up? I quite like him as he is.

Don't get all Christian Bale on us, Tom.

Has he also f**ked off Mad Max for The Dark Knight? Answers on a postcard please.

And should I just, in fact, turn this blog into the Tom Hardy blog?! :-)
