Tom Hardy Is Filming a Period Adventure Drama in the Nude
We are not quite sure about that one—although it does appear that Hardy’s character, James Keziah Delaney, is in a rowboat and transferring something in a heavy canvas sack. Deadline previously informed us that the character is depicted as he ”returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds to seek vengeance after the death of his father.” So maybe the bag contains diamonds and a dog-eared copy of Hamlet? And, well, we still can’t explain the nudity but are sure that there is a reason for it. Like maybe James has deep-seated clothing-related superstitions? Or maybe, Tom and Chips Hardy, savvy TV creators they are, simply knew what their audience likely wanted—Tom Hardy in a rowboat—and decided to give them just that. Either way, we will not know how the Hardy nude rowboat scene fits into the series until the show airs, sometime this year.
