Tom Hardy Portrays Cray-Cray Kray Twins in ‘Legend’

Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road) portrays the Kray Brothers, real-life identical twins Ronald and Reggie, who ruled the underground of London during the Swinging ’60s with a gang that dabbled in everything from protection rackets and armed robbery to murder.

Apparently Hardy is trying to make up for being the sidekick in Fury Road by playing both leads in this movie, which co-stars Emily Browning, Christopher Eccleston (the Ninth Doctor), Chazz Palminteri and David Thewlis (Remus in the Harry Potter films).

 

The story of the Krays was portrayed onscreen once before, in 1990’s The Krays, starring brothers Gary and Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet.

Legend opens Oct. 2 in the USA.
