A quiet and kind guy with some developmental delay is a witness to the robbery. And the trouble is that the hero does not understand how dangerous it is to tell the truth about the crime in the area where the mafia operates. The actor admitted to Rolling Stone magazine that he took something for the image of Bob from Lenny, a mentally retarded character in the story “AT mice and humans “ John Steinbeck. Both heroes live in a cruel world in which they can not fit because of their natural naivete and kindness.

In 2017, together with filmmaker Stephen Knight and his father, screenwriter Edward “Chips” Hardy, Tom released the series “Taboo”. At its core – a story written by Hardy Jr. It tells the story of an adventurer who builds a ship empire in the early 19th century century.
