So far, we've noted five films that are helping Hardy make it onto the Hollywood A-list. From smaller films like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to big blockbusters like Inception to character-driven dramas like Warrior, Hardy has established himself as a strong and compelling actor who is worthy of Hollywood's attention.
Hardy will also be starring in a film called Wettest County (pictured left), which arrives in theaters late this year with a cast of well-known actors like Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman and Jessica Chastain. Although that movie hasn't received a lot of publicity thus far, it will be interesting to see where Hardy takes his career from here. I, for one, cannot wait.
