I considered this alternate actor:Steve Peacocke as a possible actor for Mad Max0 Upvotes0 RepliesUpvoteAdd A Reply
Do not get me wrong,I very much look forward to seeing what Tom Hardy does as either the 'next generation' of Mad Max or a revamped version of the tried-and-tested character. I equally thought that this actor from Home and Away: Steve Peacocke would have equally been an interesting choice for Mad Max also. He has similarities to Mel Gibson in many ways and he is a pretty good actor as well - and he's an Aussie! Bonus for George Miller!

He's also a relative unknown which may have helped to serve his making the character of the new Max 'his own'. Who knows, perhaps he was already approached and did not make the final audition, it was just a thought and a shame that he never made it as a consideration for the role. Equally, I do think however that Tom Hardy will make a fine portrayle of another gruff and egotistical, almost mystical character. Perhaps Steve Peacocke will find a role in the eventual sequels that will inevitably follow suit as a new updated trilogy of the franchise is planned, so we shall see!
