In Lawless more so than in Bondurant’s book, the legend of the bootleggers’ invincibility is played up. Forrest, the strapping middle sibling, played by Hardy, survived a throat slashing, bullets, and beatings. It’s as if nothing, or no one, could do him in.
“Through the historical records we had, it was clear that the brothers were a feared group, and they were dangerous, but we didn’t really know what specifically they had done,” Matt Bondurant says. “We know that Forrest had had his throat cut and that they had been shot. So one of the things that struck me early on is Forrest is a Rasputin-like figure, and so in the book I suggest that even when they were young boys, they survived the Spanish flu epidemic. They are survivors, and Forrest in particular can’t be killed.
“That’s why people are afraid of him.”
Bondurant brought his father down to the shoot in Georgia last year, and saw Hardy’s work firsthand. A big, hulking presence, Hardy is the terrorist villain in The Dark Knight Rises, but in Lawless he doesn’t have a big, crablike mask affixed to his face. You can actually see him act.
“We saw the scene where Tom Hardy punches those guys out, at his place. We were there all day and we watched him punch those guys like 16 times, over and over, from different angles. And it was really impressive and frightening. Hardy’s obviously an athlete because he moves with a kind of fluidity and speed and power that’s actually frightening. And I’ve been around athletes my whole life, and I’ve seen some things. He’s a frightening dude when he was springing into action, and I think that translates in the film… .
“When he takes on those two guys, and does them both in, that’s when I think the audience is like Whoa, this guy’s a force!
“And I liked the way that Hardy played it, and this is to some degree in the book, too: Forrest doesn’t want to beat these people up, he doesn’t want to do any of these things… . And I think Hardy did a good job - there’s a weird sort of nervousness about it afterwards, as he’s trying to clean off his hand, he’s almost embarrassed by his strength.”

Actual pack mom Forrest Bondurant.
Reading that aroused me more than pornography. Hardy IS pornography!

GQ: In Lawless, your character rocks the most menacing cardigan I’ve ever seen. Your choice?
Tom: It wasn’t in the script. The only way you can make him a likeable gangster is by finding his femininity. He’s a mother [to his brothers]. I had a big fuckload of batteries in the pockets, so it hung down. I looked like your granddad, but I had a swagger. A cardigan with a swagger, right? Can you imagine getting knocked the fuck out by a guy in a cardigan? (x)
