Tom Hardy on Playing 'Dark Knight' Villain Bane

Tom Hardy tells THR about playing villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, in which he's barely recognizable with a giant, mechanical mask shrouding half his face.

"It was hot and tight and a little bit claustrophobic at times," Hardy says. "But, you know, it was good fun. Most of the time."

The actor also praises co-star Christian Bale and responds to that mask-muffled dialogue mini-scandal.
