20Jude Law as Praetor Shinzon - Nemesis

Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser in Captain Marvel

Actor Tom Hardy's career certainly hasn't been a boring one. He's broken Batman, fought Leonardo DiCaprio, and is currently headlining Sony's new Marvel franchise as Eddie Brock/Venom. In fact, in one of his earliest roles, he got the chance to play Praetor Shinzon, a clone of Patrick Stewart's Captain Jean-Luc

Picard, in Star Trek: Nemesis.

While Hardy's performance wasn't bad (what Hardy performance is?), he certainly didn't prove a standout villain for the franchise. However, if director Stuart Baird had given the role to Jude Law (whose supporting role in 1999's The Talented Mr. Ripley landed him an Oscar nomination), his experience could've made the role more impactful. Regardless, even Law couldn't have saved the movie, as its financial failure warranted J.J. Abrams' 2009 reboot seven years later.
