Cool Videos: Tom Hardy's screen test for Star Trek: Nemesis

3 years agoby:
100%

You could throw Tom Hardy in anything, and he would probably be amazing in it. Infomercial? Yep. Softcorn porn? Yep. As Jack in a movie based on Jack from Jack in the Box? Yep. I don't know what I was doing there...

Back in 2002, Hardy was Shinzon in STAR TREK: NEMESIS. I only realized this until after I had seen him in BRONSON. I had seen the movie on cable a couple of times, but never actually managed to get through it. For those interested, I have for you a screen test from the film featuring Hardy and Patrick Stewart. It also gives you a comparison with the actual footage in the film. What's interesting about this is that the test it's self is better than the actual product.

Final Product Is Better!

The test is great for test, it shows the acting capabilities of Hardy, who is just ridiculous and is today's Marlon Brando, or will be. But the test is a bit overacted, a bit too charismatic, facial gestures and the like were a bit overstated, but for a test, that is perfect because he showed how far he can take himself, but it did not feel like a natural interaction, it felt like a test, and Tom was trying to impress, and he more than did.

He may have been in one of the three lesser Trek films (the others being one and five), but it still shows off his talent. Agreed that the test is better than what's in the final film.

It's funny: when Tom Hardy began to take up the spotlight, first with Bronson and then later in Christopher Nolan's Inception and as Bane in Dark Knight Rises, my first thought was "he was the villain in Star Trek: Nemesis.". I remember how, while the film itself was considered a disappointment, Tom Hardy's name came up as one of the best parts of this movie. In fact, I believe he received accolades from the cast and crew as they spoke about the movie. I was certainly pleased to see his star,

I was certainly pleased to see his star, ahem, "rise" as he is a talented actor, but I will always associated his role in this movie as one of the early signs of his talents, which this screen test shows.

Awesome video!! A lot of people dump on Nemesis but I always found to be one of the better Star Trek Films, not as good as First Contact but definitely better than Generations and Insurrection
