“I worked with Tom on Tinker Tailor. I’m off to do a couple of days with him on The Wettest County and then we work together on Batman.

And then we get married. 2011 is the year of Gary and Tom.”

(…) Gary Oldman, who said Tom Hardy is “super hot shit”, “gorgeous”, and “red meat”.
Tom: “I spent my entire experience with Gary [on Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy] staring at him and not returning any lines because I think he’s God.”

Gary Oldman tickling Tom Hardy during an interview (x)

Lovefilm did a live commentary on Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy the other day, with Tomas Alfredson and Peter Straughn. Tomas called Tom Hardy ‘lovely’ and ‘enthusiastic’ and Peter shared this anecdote from the scene in the photo above (made even more funny by Gary Oldman’s recent comment from the TDKR set about Tom talking):

Gary told me that in this scene - this is a studio set in Smiley’s house, so they had to, at one point, take a wall out, to do the reverse shot. And Tom was apparently just chatting away to him and Gary decided to stay in character. So he just sat in complete silence for about whatever time it took - an hour - while they were setting up the shot. While Tom just kept on chatting. And it’s almost the same energy as the scene where Smiley just watches and makes him talk.

Gary’s smacking advice

charlidos:

Since tonight is Gary’s big night (but I have a feeling he won’t win, damn it) here are some words from the man himself. :)

Gary Oldman is an old pro at walking red carpets, but as a first-time Oscar nominee, Sunday will be different. “I’m very excited,” he said. “I’m not nervous. I’ve had a great ride and I’m looking forward to it.”

Oldman worked with some younger talent on his nominated film, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and joked when asked what advice he gave co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy. “I smack ‘em,” Oldman quipped. “No, they don’t need anything from me. They are wonderful. It was a wonderful thing, a harmonic thing — right place, right part, right cast, right director.”

Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy on the TTSS set

ossuarypossum:

Straughan: We knew from the beginning that we had to move it deeper into the story [in the movie] because we had to introduce George Smiley. Didn’t you say, Gary, that when you were shooting this scene that you maintained a Smiley silence which was freaking Tom out?

Oldman: Yes, it discombobulated him.

Straughan: You stayed in character.

Oldman: You’ve got a great excuse when you are playing Smiley. I would get to the set, and I was ready and I would just sit and wait. There is no particular method of how you approach a role but you find one. It was a nice thing for me to get there and be ready. There was a set up in this scene and we had about 40 minutes of downtime. I stayed sitting in the chair. And Tom was just talking and talking and talking and I was just sitting there like a statue, without realizing it. Tomas was watching this and he said, “Do you know that you have not spoken for 45 minutes?” I just watched Tom burble on. That is one of the secrets of George and how he gets people to open up.

From this interview.

Yay, it’s cuddle time…
*Hardy: Oldman Oscar nod is overdue*
Tom Hardy has thrown his weight behind Gary Oldman’s Oscar campaign - saying his nomination is long overdue.
The two men starred together in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, for which Oldman received a best actor nod.
Tom said the news was “amazing” but that his co-star didn’t need an Academy Award to prove himself.
He said: “I think it’s amazing, it’s about time actually. The official answer is that I’m 110 per cent behind him, I think he deserves it.
“The other side of it is that he doesn’t need an award because he is the best actor ever.”
