Tom Hardy is set to play Elton John in his upcoming biopic Rocketman, and in preparation for the role he has been getting into John’s pants — although not in the way I’m sure Elton would like . . .
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that while at the American Film Market to promote their film, Hardy said he’d been trying on John’s actual clothes to help get into character. So what’s his favourite look?
Maybe this subtle little number?
Or this one?
Not quite. Hardy is fond of Elton’s tracksuits, apparently, and has even borrowed one of the singer’s watches.
Rocketman starts filming fall 2014.
