Tom Hardy May Play Elton John in Rocketman Biopic

Currently being developed by first-time director Michael Gracey, Rocketman will play as "a biographical musical fantasy that weaves together the life of Sir Elton John and his music." And for whatever reason, Tom Hardy is being considered as Sir Elton. "Right now, the project is out to Tom Hardy. That doesn't mean they've made him a formal offer yet, or even that he's interested, but it's an intriguing possibility," HitFix reports. Hey, every respectable actor needs his or her "holy crap, was that who I thought it was?" moment sooner or later.
