Video: Tom Hardy talks ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

In a recent interview with the UK’s Channel 4 talk show Alan Carr, Tom Hardy spoke briefly about his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises:

“Chris Nolan, again, will revisit that territory entirely so I wouldn’t go by that [Schumacher’s Batman and Robin]. Plus, that’s a lot of weight to put on and I’ve got to start shooting in May. So I’ve got to get back up to that size again [presumably “again” referring to his bulked turn in Bronson] and I’ve got to get up to about 13-and-a-half or 14 stone [approx. 200 lbs.]. I’m 12-and-a-bit now [approx. 170 lbs.], so I’ve got three months to do that.”
