Photo: Will Tom Hardy Resemble Elton John in "Rocketman" Biopic?

Photo: Will Tom Hardy Resemble Elton John in "Rocketman" Biopic?Submit Comment
After such actors as Justin Timberlake and James McAvoy were rumored to play Elton John in his biopic called "Rocketman," it was revealed last month that the role officially went to Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises).

In preparation of the American Film Market, Elton John and Tom Hardy appeared for a presentation together in Santa Monica. We now have a photo of the two men. Check it out below and let us know if you think Hardy looks like a younger version of John.

"Rocketman" is a musical that tells the story of a child prodigy turned music legend. John will re-record many of his iconic hits to parallel the emotional beats of the film. The film will be directed by Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman on Earth) from a script by Lee Hall (War Horse, Billy Elliot). It will begin shooting this time next year.

Does Tom Hardy have a d*ck-shaped *sshole?

If so, then yes, he will resemble Elton John.

Rocketman. lol. Perfect name for the guy who had red-hot foot-long pains in his exhaust nozzle.

^^Is that anything like Nirvana's heart-shaped box?

They both bleed when you poke them.

Anyone else think Hardy got the role because casting/the producers/John felt only a gay man could play the "emotional complexity" of another gay man, and if so, isn't that discrimination?

I bet there were glittering buttplugs, c*ckrings, and dildos abound following this photo being taken.

Well, the didn't need a foley artist for the screaming sound effects, that's for sure.

Look, don't get me wrong, Elton's got some great songs and I am a fan.

But no... this shouldn't be going ahead...

Neither should the Freddie Mercury bio pic.
Neither should Anaconda vs Lake Placid.
Neither should Shia LaBeouf.

Elton Johns da man
Hardy wants to be 'da man' in the Luther Vandros bio-pic

Hardy is a f*cking chameleon, he'll be fine...

The big question for me is...why?

This project will be more aimed at the old timers. You won't catch teens watching this...maybe just gay ones. Maybe.

Just check out Behind the Candelabra. Soderbergh's was critically acclaimed, but how many were actually watching?...

They'll be lucky they break even is my point..

While they're at it, why don't they make some more bios on Tony Bennett, Neil Diamond, and uh...the Monkees. Get those those blockbusters ready guys...

yea he'd make a good fit...in the role i mean, in elton john it would slip in too easily

Now if you did a Don Rickles bio...it'd be better.

This guy has been how long working? + 50 years of entertaining people (standup was still in its infancy when Rickles started). The guy is a wealth of knowledge & stories, hilarious stories!! The guy rubbed elbows with many celebrities, presidents/ politicians, sports stars? Got vouched for by Sinatra...the very few that could bust Sinatra's balls...

And the guy is still going strong, still working his brand of humor, doing standup. Seinfeld said many don't know how hard Rickle's job is...no gimmick, a lot of improvisation, & has always has to be funny. The guy never rests, still relevant...isn't he about to be in the 90s? Tip of the hat...

Stand up is very big...people would watch that...IMO.
