Tom Hardy Shares His Thoughts On Gary Oldman And His Plans After <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i>!

In a revealing interview, the British actor praises his TDKR and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy co-star Gary Oldman, as well as discussing how his career has changed and what his future holds after playing the villainous Bane...

Talking to ShortList recently, the subject of The Dark Knight Rises didn't really come up (although, let's be honest, we all know he wouldn't have betrayed director Christopher Nolan's confidence by divulging any secrets!) although he did share his thoughts on Gary Oldman, an actor who he's also worked on recently in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. "Gary Oldman is my absolute complete and utter hero. He’s the fucking man. I look at him and I want to be like that for my generation — I want to have that same quality. He’s incredible. And there is a definite 'hang on a minute' [moment], but I’ve got past the star-struck part now."

And what of HIS future? With his fame rocketing thanks to roles in the likes of Inception and Warrior, this is a good time for Hardy, something he's very much aware of.

"It’s almost the beginning and the end of a phase for me. It’s the beginning of working in America, and we’ve managed to put together a range of projects, but I think over a period of time I’ll slowly pull out. Otherwise you’re exposed to the market. Once I’ve completely finished on a couple of films, such as The Dark Knight Rises and Mad Max, you’ll probably see me fade away. I might f*ck off completely. It’s like laying a field down with crops — you need to leave the field, man, sometimes, so you can grow sh*t again. I’ll fuck off if I have to. Sometimes you need to know when to leave the casino."

What do you guys make of Hardy's comments? Are there any other superhero movies you'd like to see him in? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!
