Tom Hardy Does Not Want To Be Mel Gibson
Tom Hardy is terrified about following in Mel Gibson’s footsteps. The ‘RocknRolla’ actor has been repeatedly linked with taking on the role first made famous by the ‘Braveheart’ star in new movie ‘Fury Road’, and although it isn’t totally confirmed that he has the role, Tom is already preparing for the film – but admits he is worried about appearing to mimic the Australian star.
He said: “It’s strongly coming in my direction. I would be preparing for that role. “The Mad Max figure is a big figure, and I have to get my head around that. I would have to pick up where Mel left off, but in all honesty, it would be ridiculous to pick up where Mel left off. He is Mad Max. I have to bring something entirely different and new to the stage.”
Tom admits he is still unsure about the plot of ‘Fury Road’ as his audition had nothing to do with Mad Max.
He added to MTV Movies: “The audition process had nothing to do with Max and nothing to do with the story or the script. It was unorthodox to the point where actually I could have been auditioning for anything. It was an anonymous read. We haven’t actually gotten into the conversation at all about Max.”
