Budgets are tight these days, so when a movie calls for twins and you’ve already landed yourself a high-profile actor, sometimes you just have to Winklevoss it. Such is the case with writer-director Brian Helgeland’s new thriller, Legend, which stars Tom Hardy as identical twin gangsters Ronald and Reginald Kray. As you can tell from the above image, Hardy is taking on both roles, which is hardly surprising considering his chameleon-like abilities he’s showcased throughout his career. If nothing else, this is an opportunity to stretch his acting chops as he’ll have to develop distinctive looks, mannerisms, and personalities to distinguish the Krays. A worthy challenge.

In addition to being on a short list to play the title role of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Hardy’s also being rumored to star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant. Hardy’s other upcoming pictures include Michaël R. Roskam’s crime-thriller The Drop, Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44, the musical London Road, plus George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. Oh, yeah, and he’ll be playing Elton John in Rocketman.
