Hump Day Hottie: Tom Hardy Likes Puppies & That’s All Right By Us

According to IMDB, “Animal Rescue” is about “a lost pit bull, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing,” which sounds like my average Friday night. But forgiving his turn as Bane, and judging from his other recent flicks — “Lawless” and “Inception” — he knows what he’s doing. I mean, this is a guy who somehow made the Reese Witherspoon rom-com “This Means War” palatable. He’s obviously talented.
