Since the first glimpse of Tom Hardy as Bane in 'The Dark Knight Rises' hit the airwaves, we've been secretly wondering what lies underneath that mask of his. Apparently, it's a beard the likes of which can only be matched by Christian Bale's insane scruff.

We can only assume that filming the most-anticipated movie of the summer left Hardy exhausted enough to let his face run wild, but now there's practically nothing differentiating him from Logan Marshall-Green. Actually, it's a little closer to the 'Prometheus' star from his 'Across the Universe' hippie days. All Hardy needs now is some reefer and he could've played Paco in that movie.
