BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Christopher Nolan had good news and bad news for Tom Hardy. The good news was that the director had a part for him in the new Batman movie. The bad news was that his face would be covered by a grille the whole time. Nolan says Hardy made the best of it. Nolan says Hardy used his eyes to express an "extremely threatening stillness." And he came up with a voice that added to his menacing demeanor. Nolan says he'd never seen anything like it.
