Does Tom Hardy Channel Marlon Brando in The Bikeriders?
In The Bikeriders, Hardy plays a similar character to Brando’s Johnny Strabler. He even looks a lot like Brando in his leather jacket, and talks similarly, too — oh, and his character’s name is also Johnny.
Jeff Nichols’The Bikeriders follows the rise of a fictional 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club through the lives of its members, Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, The Last Duel) and Austin Butler (Elvis) alongside Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant). Other cast members include Mike Faist, Michael Shannon, Boyd Holbrook, Beau Knapp, Norman Reedus, and Carl Glusman.
