Tom Hardy has scored himself a new acting gig.
On Wednesday, Deadline announced that the actor is set to play British war photographer Don McCullin from the autobiography Unreasonable Behavior.
The story is described as "an unflinching account of McCullin's journey from a poverty-stricken childhood in wartime London to becoming one of the most famous war photojournalists. Working for Sunday Times from the late 60's to the early 80's, he risked his life to photograph the harsh realities of war from Vietnam, Cambodia, to Biafra and Uganda, one back and white image at a time."
With Hardy's promising career, odds are likely this will add more of a positive affect on where the actor is going from here.
Hardy's previous credits include Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. He was also nominated for an Oscar earlier this year for his role in The Revenant in the Best Supporting Actor category.
His fame and success led him to a comparison to iconic movie star Marlon Brando. In a report from USA Today, actress Jane Fonda opened up on how she saw Hardy in Legend and was so impressed by his work that she had to see him in another film.
"I saw The Revenant and asked who played the bad guy," Fonda said. "It was Tom Hardy and then a lot of folks said, 'You gotta see him in Legend. There he played twin brothers who are British gangsters. He is really amazing in this film. I came to think of the two brothers and different people even though Hardy was playing both. And, as the more together of the brothers, Hardy is like a new Brando."
