“I don’t want to give too much away about it, but there’s definitely a transformation with that role, Hardy said about playing Capone. “I don’t know if it’s as drastic as Bane. I’ve probably damaged my body too much. I’m only little! If I keep putting on weight I’ll collapse like a house of cards […]
