Before crushing throats and breaking backs in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, Tom Hardy was pissing off another group of iconic figures in STAR TREK: NEMESIS. The film was the last journey for the STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION crew and would become the lowest grossing Star Trek film of all time. The franchise lay low and went for a complete reboot in 2009 with J.J. Abrams’ STAR TREK.
Hardy played an evil clone of Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard. Below is a video of Hardy’s screen test, compared with his final performance in the film. He’s obviously undergone some prosthetic work to look more like Stewart in the final film.
