Tom Hardy seemed like a strange choice to some of us when we heard he was to play the masked villain Bane. Sure, he had just completed work on Inception with Christopher Nolan so the two had become good friends based on that, but what else could it be? Prior toThe Dark Knight Rises and Inception, Hardy wasn't known very well outside of film fanatic circles. The one thing that he was really known for was a little film called Bronson.
In Bronson, Hardy played notorious British criminal Michael Gordon Peterson (nicknamed Charles Bronson by his promoter) who was well known as being “Britain's Most Violent Inmate.” During the course of pre-production for the film, Hardy put on 42 pounds of muscle for the role, and it shows when you see the cover. Aren't those the most terrifying arm muscles you've ever seen? Seriously, he looks like Donkey Kong. Within the film, we see just how bonkers and savage Hardy can be as the character, he's a total nutter.
When Hardy was cast as Bane he only assumed that it was because of his muscled up performance inBronson. He thought that Nolan had seen the film and was so impressed with both his acting skills and physical demeanor that he had to have him as Bane in the new Batman film. When he asked Chris this, he was shocked to find out that Nolan had never seen Bronson and originally cast him as Bane because of his work in Guy Richie's film RocknRolla. Keep reading this article
Michael Terron Daniel was allegedly high on a designer drug known as K2 at the time and was said to be "going crazy."
Witnesses say Daniel informed residents at the Waco home where the incident took place that he was "on a bad trip from ingesting K-2" — a type of synthetic cannabisknown to exacerbate existing psychoses — before getting down on his hands and knees and "chas[ing] a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog."
He then proceeded to beat and strangle the family dog before biting into it, "ripping pieces of flesh away." The dog was later pronounced dead at the scene.
According to Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, officers arrived to find Daniel on the porch covered in blood. He asked the officers to fight him or use the stun gun "to help him get off his bad trip."
Daniel was charged with felony cruelty to a non-livestock animal and booked into McLennan County Jail where he remains.
