Infamous mob boss Al Capone has an iconic look, and somehow Tom Hardy is nailing it perfectly.
A recent picture of Hardy surfaced Wednesday that shows the actor in full Capone dress and makeup for his role as the gangster in the upcoming biographical movie Fonzo (which stems from Capone’s full first name, Alphonse — not to be confused with Alfonse).
It’s almost hard to believe that’s Hardy under there.
This new picture comes a few months after Fonzo director Joshua Trank and Hardy himself shared a couple photos of Hardy as old Scarface on Instagram. Take a look:
Fonzo, which is slated to come out in 2019, focuses on the final years of Al Capone’s life, years and years after he established himself as the biggest, baddest name in the prohibition-era United States, taking control of Chicago with illicit entrepreneurship and violence. Fonzo dives into Capone’s life after he has already been imprisoned and dementia is taking its toll on him.
The film was originally supposed to come out in 2018 but was pushed back because of Hardy’s role in the upcoming movie Venom.
