Razor blade caps at the ready! The Peaky Blinders are gaining a new member.
Bafta winning actor Tom Hardy is set to join the cast of BBC2’s Birmingham-set gangster drama Peaky Blinders.
Hardy, who has starred in Hollywood blockbusters Locke (which was written and directed by Peaky Blinders’ creator Steven Knight), The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Lawless and Inception, will star in the second series of drama, which is set to start filming later this month.
The show’s makers took to Twitter to share the casting news:
Ellie is an entertainment, TV and film journalist writing news and (hopefully incredibly witty) comment for RadioTimes.com. She loves light-hearted dramas and glossy US series - and is more than a little bit obsessed with Downton Abbey. Foodie, sun-seeker and aspiring novelist in her own time. Likes the fact that her name rhymes with telly.
