Like legit sporting the gap tooth, wearing the crazy costumes, rocking on the piano playing Elton John! The news was revealed today that Tom would be taking on the iconic singer in a new movie, Rocketman.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Elton is even going to re-record some of his hits “to match the emotional moments in the film.” Wait, so Tom Hardy is not going to be singing?
But it’s so fun when he sings! Especially when it’s with Benedict Cumberbatch. Please refer to the video below and allow yourself to be filled with joy. I feel like this will be good. Tom is extremely talented, and I think he’ll be able to pull off the flamboyance of young Elton with ease.
Again, I am so stoked. Now, if we could just make it that we get some really good people playing random cameos in Elton’s life, I’d be even happier. Clearly we need Benedict to play someone. Let me know who you think would be awesome in the comments! And once again, yay!
