Something very impressive on imdb about Tom Hardy made by actress Laurene Landon who knew the late, great Marlon Brando:
"I had the honor and privilege of knowing Marlon Brando for many years. He was the greatest actor I had ever witnessed - until I saw the works of Tom Hardy. Cinematic brilliance. Raw, natural, innate. There’s nothing counterfeit about him. Tom is going to be the biggest star in the world. It’s as though you’re walking by him and listening in to his clandestine conversations. Marlon would agree - we had interchangeable tastes in talent. Not to mention, Tom you have the most resplendent philtrum on this planet."

insidemovies.ew.com has a behind-the-scenes featurette on the THE DROP, with director Michael Roskam and Matthias Schoenaerts, among others, offering insights. For now, you have to watch it here. (Screenshots from the featurette.)In The Drop, Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini play two Brooklyn cousins trying to make ends meet on the fringe of gangster life without sticking their necks out too far. … But when Bob finds an abandoned puppy and meets a pretty woman (Noomi Rapace), his disciplined disengagement is tested and he has to confront the beast that might still lurk beneath his own skin.The gritty crime drama, which opens Sept. 12, is based on a Dennis Lehane short story and directed by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead).In an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette, Lehane, Rapace, and others dissect the story and characters at the heart of the drama. As for Hardy, those Marlon Brando comparisons aren’t going away anytime soon. Try to watch and listen to his Bob Saginowski and not think of On the Waterfront‘s Terry Malloy.
