3 Reasons to Watch Tom Hardy's New Show Taboo
James Keziah Delaney is an even more brutal reprisal of Hardy’s character in The Revenant—Delaney is brooding, rough, and amoral—but now he’s on the offensive. Delaney is running the show from Act I, literally and figuratively: Hardy steals every scene, and Delaney mercilessly puppeteers the other characters, giving few clues to his long game. Early reviews have made much of the idea that Taboo would be nothing without Hardy. That’s true: Taboo is a show Tom Hardy made to celebrate Tom Hardy. But Tom Hardy is pretty great.
