He was also 'Handsome Bob' in Rocknrolla with Gerard Butler and the 'usual slaaag crowd', before he bulked up as much.
That was the first movie I notice Tom Hardy as an actor. Even though it was a minor character it was pretty funny. He was also in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. He was pretty good as a mole. I saw that movie but it was very confusing to me at the beginning and through out the movie I'm not familiar with the book until the end I realized those code represent each character play.
