    It's no question that Tom Hardy is one of Hollywood's most interesting rising stars. We've seen him train like a beast in "Warrior," attempt to destroy Gotham City in "The Dark Knight Rises," and fight for Reese Witherspoon's heart in the romantic spy comedy, "This Means War." Time and time again, we've seen Hardy channeling his inner bad ass, on the big screen, but his next role is going to require him to tap in a completely different set of talents...After a long search for a leading man, producers of the Elton John bio-pic "Rocketman" announced that Tom Hardy has officially signed on to play the iconic musician in the upcoming movie. "Rocketman" will focus on Elton John's life, starting from his early years as a young talent, to his rise to music superstardom and international fame. The movie will be directed by Michael Gracey, the man behind the upcoming "The Greatest Showman on Earth," and is set to start shooting in 2014. In a press release announcing the news, Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel said, "We are confident that Tom will embody the physicality and spirit of Sir Elton." But are you? Do you think Hardy can pull off this role? And if not, who would you have cast to play Sir Elton John? Sound off in the comments below. I'm Erin Darling, thanks for watching Clevver Movies!
