Tom Hardy to Play Elton John in "Rocketman" BiopicSubmit Comment
After Justin Timberlake appeared on "SNL" as Elton John, the real Elton John announced that he would love for Timberlake to star in his biopic, called "Rocketman." Now comes word that the role has gone to Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises).

"Rocketman" is a musical that tells the story of a child prodigy turned music legend. Elton will re-record many of his iconic hits to parallel the emotional beats of the film. The film is begin shooting this time next year.

"Tom is quickly becoming known as one of the world's most versatile actors, and like others at the top of their craft, he has proven his ability to transform himself completely into the character or subject found in the material," said Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel. "We are confident that Tom will embody the physicality and spirit of Sir Elton."

"Rocketman" will be directed by Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman on Earth) from a script by Lee Hall (War Horse, Billy Elliot).

Thomas Jane will play his boyfriend. I wonder if they'll be a sandwich eating contest.

Elton's voice doesnt sound as youthful as it used to
his rerecordings will sound labored and constipated

I always thought he should play Vincent Price. Physically he resembles a young version of Price plus Hardy is good at playing abstract characters.

This however, is just gay. Figuratively and literally.

Elton John, a recipient of an Academy Award, a Grammy, a Golden Globe, and countless sausages up in the ass. What a big shoes to "fill" for hardy.

Also, Why anyone would want to portray that homosexual fruitloop is beyond me. Just give the role to Will ferrelll instead.

Hardy should portray Elton exactly like his performance in LAWLESS. I could use a good laugh.

Not sure if I should be relieved or disappointed that i thought the article was about Tom Hardy starring in a remake of that Rocketman movie of the 90s.

That's what i get for not completely reading an article title.

I'm confused.

He will be hard pressed to match this fine portrayal of Sir Elton of John.
