Here is casting news that I don't think you will be unhappy about. Tom Hardy playing Elton John in the biopic "Rocketman". My reaction to that is "Wow". What an acting challenge for Hardy. He has amazed us in the past with Bane, Bronson and even Shinzon in "Star Trek: Nemesis". Naturally he will have to lose a lot of the bulk that he's gotten throughout the years of tough guy roles and grow some funky hair. Another thing were not used of him. But I think this might be one of those performances we will remember and anticipate with excitement.
P.S. This film is also a musical! BANE singing and playing the piano.
