Topher Grace Is Excited To See Tom Hardy’s Venom

While Tom Hardy’s upcoming turn as Venom will likely end up being the definitive version of the character, it certainly won’t be the first. Most of you may remember way back in 2007 that actor Topher Grace was the first to portray the character on the big screen. While promoting Spike Lee’s latest film, BlacKkKlansman, in which Grace plays former KKK leader David Duke, the actor spoke with Inverse and talked about the upcoming Venom movie, and said he believes Tom Hardy is the right man for the job..

“To me — I truly mean this — I think Tom is the guy to play that role. I’m thrilled to watch it as a fan. I really mean that. I think he’s just the best dude.”

Grace continued, talking about his excitement to see the new Venom film, as well as discussing the version of the character he played in Spider-Man 3.

“I understand Sam’s interpretation, which was to do a dark version of Tobey [Maguire]’s character. I was thrilled because I was such a fan of the character, but I was aware of how it was different from what I had grown up reading. I thought it was cool, but I’m really excited to see [Tom Hardy’s version]. That’s the character I grew up with.”

Hardy’s version does seem to be the more accurate representation of the character. Grace’s opinion on the matter likely resonates with tons of other comic book readers who are excited to see Tom Hardy bring a more familiar version of the character to the screen.
