Tom and Paul Anderson on the set of Legend - I love how well these two obviously get on. 

The presentation of The Drop from Toronto film festival’s site:

Tom Hardy delivers his most accomplished performance to date in the English-language debut from acclaimed Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead). Hardy is Bob Saginowski, a Brooklyn bartender who’s as big-hearted as he is streetwise. The bar is Cousin Marv’s, a neighbourhood watering hole that doubles as a drop bar — a place for its owners, some local Chechen gangsters, to launder money.

Bob and Marv walk a thin line between regular life and the underworld — especially Marv (James Gandolfini), a former crime boss now in the pocket of a new and much crueller operation. When the drop is stolen in a holdup, they must weigh the threat of the Chechens against that of a sharp and curious cop (John Ortiz). Bob’s life is further complicated by a chance meeting with a local woman, Nadia (Noomi Rapace), and it isn’t long before his own past returns to haunt him.

Using grey, misty hues and a foreboding atmosphere, Roskam sets a nuanced character study in a world of moral ambiguity. Hardy comprises its centre in a typically heavyweight — if deceptively slow-building — turn, surrounded by a splendid international cast including Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Belgian (and soon-to-be Hollywood) star Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead, Rust and Bone), and Gandolfini in his riveting final performance. Roskam lends a distinctly European sensibility to The Drop’s very American milieu, allowing the film to move naturally toward a gripping conclusion that will leave hearts racing and minds wondering: just which of these animals truly needs rescuing?

A first look at Tom Hardy in the upcoming second series of PEAKY BLINDERS, starring Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson and other actors including Charlotte Riley. Thanks to 

FIRST LOOK AT TOM HARDY’S PEAKY BLINDERS DEBUT

“I ain’t shaving my beard off. To shave my beard off would be to cut my f*cking nuts off. You know what I mean? Without them, I am no longer… I am now a lie. Why would I do that?”

So said Tom Hardy in a recent interview, when asked if he would remove his face fuzz for a photoshoot. So it’s hardly surprising to see that the actor is hirsute in the second series of BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders. Clearly, even if Hoxton beards weren’t popular in post-First World War Birmingham, getting Hardy to shave simply wasn’t an option.

The Dark Knight Rises star has some massive projects next year, including Mad Maxand his Kray Twins biopic (in which he plays both Ronnie and Reggie), but before that – as these exclusive shots show – there’s his anticipated stint in Peaky Blinders.

Hardy is rumoured to be playing a vicious new antagonist in the show, which tracks the blood-spattered antics of the eponymous Midlands gang (so named for sewing razor blades into their caps) in the early 20th century. Cillian Murphy returns as gang boss Tommy, who’s trying to expand his empire, while other actors include Game Of Thrones’ Noah Taylor and Hardy’s real-life wife, Charlotte Riley.

Creator Steven Knight – who directed Hardy in Locke – says this series will be “more dangerous… The gang are entering areas of even greater jeopardy”. Which is presumably down to nudging some Gillette products in the way of Hardy.

Peaky Blinders II is coming to BBC Two this autumn

These are hilarious! Tom and Taryn Egerton doing some kind of robotic dance on the set of Legend (to celebrate the last day of shooting, perhaps?). *g*
