Tom Hardy to play Elton John

In a shock casting that is even more left field than Ben Affleck as Batman, Tom Hardy has been cast as Elton John in the new upcoming biopic of his life, Rocketman

Hardy is used to playing real life characters, after his break out roll in Bronson, but this one is slightly out of his usual range. 

The film will be directed by Michael Gracey with the script coming from Lee Hall (who wrote War Horse), and will focus on John’s life from childhood to his huge popularity and fame he now has.

Personally, I feel Justin Timberlake would be much more suited for the roll after his portrayal of Elton in the video for This Train Don’t Stop Here Anymore
