If there was one thing that the big screen needed more of this year, it was Tom Hardy. The actor was all over the place in 2015 with Child 44, London Road, Legend, The Revenant and of course, Mad Max: Fury Road. The only way to get your fix of a new Tom Hardy performance this past year was in the third season of BBC series Peaky Blinders, available on Netflix right now, and one of his projects in 2017 has him reteaming with series creator Steven Knight.
Taboo is coming to FX in January and it features Tom Hardy getting down and dirty back in 1814. Hardy plays James Keziah Delaney, a man who has changed drastically from who he used to be after spending enough time in Africa for those from his hometown in London to presume that he’s dead. Now he’s back, and he’s quite the force to be reckoned with.

Taboo marks another collaboration between Steven Knight and actor Tom Hardy. The BBC and FX series follows up their work together on Peaky Blinders season two and Knight’s spellbinding second feature, Locke. The dark and atmospheric trailer for their series made it look unlike any show coming out. In Knight’s opinion, there hasn’t ever been a show quite like it.
Below, Steven Knight discusses the Taboo TV series.

Even though he’s quite the coveted movie star, Tom Hardy had no problem taking his talents back to television with the fantastic drama series Peaky Blinders after previously starring in small screen fare such as Oliver Twist and Meadowlands. Now Hardy is back on the flickering box with a new series at FX called Taboo that he executive produced himself along with Ridley Scott, not to mention coming up with the original story along with his father Chips Hardy and Locke writer Steven Knight.

Over a year ago, in the spring of 2014, Tom Hardy was reported to star in a BBC One drama event series called Taboo, created by Locke director Steven Knight. And now the project has finally made some more progress towards getting in front of cameras this fall.

Nyholm will direct the first four episodes of the eight-part series. Learn more about the Tom Hardy Taboo series after the jump! Read More »
Tom Hardy dropped out of Suicide Squad, but don’t let that suggest he’s soured on the idea of doing more work in Warner Bros.’ DC Comics universe.

In Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Budd has to clean up a particularly fouled strip club restroom, and right now I have to write a Black Eyed Peas casting post. Night capping the last few days of X-Men Origins: Wolverine news, BEP member will.i.am (the one who looks like Wyclef) will star as John Wraith aka Wraith aka Kestrel, a mutant with teleportation powers and a thing for explosives who, in comic canon, belonged to Team X alongside Wolverine, Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), Maverick, Mastodon and Silverfox (Lynn Collins). This casting news arrives via IESB. The musician-actor, real name William James Abrams, Jr., previously starred on the TV show Cane, and the big budget film marks his feature debut. No word if he’ll contribute to the soundtrack or will have a scene teaching Gambit how to rap obnoxiously.
In a flick more befitting a BEP, rapper Taboo (the one who looks like he has a crystal skull), will star in 2009’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, the second big screen incarnation of Capcom’s classic video game series. Taboo’s role has not been officially announced, but First Showing speculates he might be up for the still unfilled roles of Ryu, Ken, or Guile. If so, total hilarity. Also joining the film, which is directed by Doom‘s Andrzej Bartkowiak, are American Pie‘s Chris Klein (as Nash), the formidable Michael Clark Duncan (as Balrog), Korean American actor Rick Yune (Gen), and others. Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk is in the title role. Did Jean-Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia teach our society nothing in 1994?
