I think Tom Hardy certainly has a nice presence, but I wish he would tone down the accent a bit. It's hard to fully embrace a performance when you can't understand 60-70 percent of the words coming out of his mouth. My favorite Tom Hardy performance is probably his supporting role in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. But to be fair I have not seen Bronson, and know he gets a lot of hype for that.

Mia Wasikowska is impressive in The Kids Are All Right, albeit in a role that isn't as big as I thought it should be. She is also very good in Season 1 of In Treatment, and she does a lot to try to make Gus Van Sant's Restless watchable.
