Tom Hardy scuzzes up real nice, as proven by some new images from the set of Tomas Alfredson’s (“Let The Right One In”) “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”. Covered in homemade/prison looking tattoos and topped off with a dirty blond wig, Hardy plays a British operative named Ricki Tarr in this adaptation of John Le Carre’s 1974 spy novel. The film tells the story of George Smiley (played by Gary Oldman), as he roots out a mole inside of British intelligence.
“Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” is the first book in Le Carre’s “Karla Trilogy”. In 1979 the BBC adapted the book into a seven-part series starring Alec Guinness as George Smiley, and BBC Radio 4 has adapted the book, twice, once in 1988, and again in 2009.
In addition to Hardy and Oldman, the cast of “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” includes Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Stephen Graham.
