Before Tom Hardy was Bane and other really intense characters on screens big and small he was a rapper named Tommy No 1.
He began rapping when he was "about 14 or 15" and even snagged a record deal.
In 1999, when he was 21, he made an unreleased mixtape with now-TV director Edward Tracy, who went by Eddie Too-Tall.
Eddie just made the tape available. It's called Falling On Your Arse and it's not bad, in an indie/backpacky kind of way.
Tom Hardy vs. Shia Leboeuf, who you got?
