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.
