When Elton John announced that he’d cast Tom Hardy to star in his own biopic Rocketman, we thought he’d lost his mind. Of ALL people – Mad Max hunk Tom Hardy? It would be the HEIGHT of vanity. Hardy was up for the challenge, but Elton eventually came back to reality and settled on Kingsman series star Taron Egerton, 28, (above) who’s shorter and can also SING. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taron is already recording songs for the movie. Elton’s husband David Furnish is producing the movie and we imagine they must have had SOME fun holding auditions for the Elton role.
