To say Tom Hardy gets typecast is a bit of an understatement at this point. But now, seeing him as infamous gangster Al Capone for the upcoming biopic ‘Fonzo’, maybe my mind is being changed.

Hardy’s character, Alphonse Gabriel Capone aka Scarface, was an American businessman and gangster in Chicago.
The biopic will focus on Capone’s later years, after his release from an almost 10-year-long prison sentence, as he suffers from dementia and his past returns to haunt him. Capone died in 1947, aged 48.
What can’t Hardy do?
