'A Fighting Name... Like a Movie Star'

Actors on Actors.

Paul: You need a fighting name. Like a movie star.
Michael: [long pause] Charlton Heston.
Paul: Look, love. Nobody's gives a toss about Charlton Heston. The man's a c***.
You're more the Charles Bronson type.

Michael: [sounding out the name] Charles Bronson.
Paul: Yes, Death Wish. Fits you down to a "t"... Perfect. Charlie F***ing Bronson.
Matt King (Paul) & Tom Hardy (Michael) in Bronson.
Screenplay by Nicholas Winding Refn & Brock Norman Brock.

Tom Hardy is such a freak in Bronson, chewing on each word like it's a bloody steak. And we love him for it.

It's not easy to make lunacy seem so much fun and sexy (in a completely twisted way of course, I'm not into psychos!).


sure you're not.
