Today is Cyber Monday. Apparently all of us will be throwing money at the Internet, supposedly buying gifts but really shopping for ourselves. Well I have a gift for you, OK? Just me. And my pleasure has nothing to do with it. I am sucking up to you because I'm scrambling today and want to mollify you with pretty pictures.

Check out Tom Hardy in period costume on the set of Taboo. It's a tv series. Which is one of his best qualities, I think. That he doesn't walk around telling himself he's a "strictly movies" star even though he totally could be. That he doesn't just do one series, he seems to make a point of doing one series a year.

Anyway, let me get out of your way now so you can enjoy him. He looks GREAT.
