Tom Hardy Poses with Mini-Bane in NYC

Taking time to show appreciation for his younger fans, Tom Hardy stopped to pose for a few pictures while on set in New York City on Tuesday (April 2).

The 35-year-old actor was hard at work on his upcoming film “Animal Rescue” when a young boy dressed as his character Bane from “The Dark Knight Rises” caught his attention.

Hardy happily knelt down next to his young admirer and made matching poses while working the camera.

Tom has recently been in the Big Apple working on the Michaël R. Roskam directed crime drama which is centered around a lost pit bull, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing.

“Animal Rescue,” which also stars James Gandolfini and Noomi Rapace, is set to hit theaters in 2014.
