CAUTION: NERDGASM AHEAD!
Appropriate screen and keyboard protection required past this point!
You probably don't remember this, but ten years and about a hundred pounds of muscle ago, Tom Hardy was the scrawny philosophical villain in Star Trek: Nemesis!
Yeah, that Tom Hardy.
Don't believe us?
Ch-Ch-Check the super-sweet clip of big bad Bane from Dark Knight Rises squaring off against Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise (above)!!
Tom and Patrick Stewart are both brilliant British thespians and the powerful acting in this gem of a find reflects that!
Seriously! First this screen test will blow your mind. Then it will swallow. And it won't even try and kiss you after!!
In the immortal words of Captain Picard, "engage!"
