Leo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s babeness is momentarily overshadowed by the hotness that is Tom Hardy in “Inception.” When Christopher Nolan rounded up the cast for this high-stakes, intellectual thriller, he must have been reading our dream journals. Get it? No! It’s fine because this week, we name Tom our Hump Day Hottie!
Press play on the video below to see more of Tom, and then keep reading for more details about him!
Vital Stats: This 32-year-old dreamboat grew up in London. He studied at the Drama Centre London before becoming a professional actor. Unfortunately for all of us, he just got engaged to fellow Brit, actress Charlotte Riley. Heart. Breaking.
Where you might have already seen him: You may know him from war dramas like HBO’s Steven Spielberg-produced series “Band of Brothers,” which he parlayed into a role in the equally battle-friendly “Black Hawk Down.” But, he can do more than just war-themed projects. He’s starred as everything from Heathcliff in “Wuthering Heights” to Handsome Bob in “RocknRolla.” And that is just a smattering of his pre-“Inception” roles.
Why you should take notice of him now: Well, he’s in Nolan’s mind-bending flick, “Inception,” where he plays Eames, “a forger on Leonardo DiCaprio’s team of fantastical bandits who is capable of impersonating other people within a shared dream state.” He certainly has us hoping he invades our dreams!
Next up, he will star in the flick “Warrior,” but everyone is already buzzing about Tom’s title role in the next “Mad Max” flick. Well, he’s certainly got us mad for him!
Until next week, when we chose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Tom by pressing play on the video above!
