Have You Seen Tom Hardy’s Stunt Double?

Have You Seen Tom Hardy’s Stunt Double?

Tom Hardy is broad shouldered perfection; this is a universally acknowledged fact. We have the WhatsApp messages to prove it. However, the Mad Max of our hearts may have a contender in the WHO IS THIS hotness stakes. News outlets this morning have been drawing our lustful attention to Jacob Tomuri, Hardy’s stunt double from the recent critically acclaimed blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road.

New Zealand native Jacob has an Instagram, thank the lords, and shared the above snap of him with Hardy a month ago. That filter he’s using is what us social media experts call ?Fine?. Jacob captioned the photo with the following words: ?So proud of this guy. Never scared to bring something new. Brilliant man. Brilliant Actor. #madmaxfuryroad#tomhardy #jacobtomuri #stuntdouble?.

Brilliant photo too.

While we think we love Tom, we’re falling for Jacob’s earthly swarthiness via our Instagram research. Jacob is married and has two sons. Here’s a shot of him being a real man and changing a nappy. Waiting war rig or not, being sound comes first.

Some more downtime dad behaviour.

He’s also not afraid to share some awkward early career shots. Here he is with Liv Tyler during the mammoth shoot that was Lord of the Rings.

Jacob is also an actor, having appeared in Avatar and 30 Days of Night. His stunt career though is really taking off. Besides Mad Max he’s appeared in The Hobbit franchise, television series Spartacus, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He is also dishy with a beard in the Canadian wilderness, the only handsome metric worth paying attention to.
