Tom Hardy is a national treasure, both in England and the United States, so whenever I get to post a clip of him doing what he does best (acting! Derp!), I do it. In this brand new clip from Fox Searchlight’s The Drop, his new movie co-starring Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) and James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) in his last film role, a junkie and hustler tries to hustle his character Bob Saginowski out of $10,000 for a very important puppy.
THE DROP is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of BULLHEAD. Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (MYSTIC RIVER, GONE BABY GONE), THE DROP follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
