The Drop

12 Sep, 2014

In this drama directed by Micheal Roskam, Hardy plays Saginowski, a small-time crook who funnels cash to local gangsters in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. He finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone wrong and involved in an investigation that digs into the neighborhood’s past. Co-starring James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, John Ortiz and Ann Dowd. About developing his Brooklyn accent:

It’s like trying to wrangle a cat. There are so many cultures and different ethnicities, so it was more confusing than anything — this collage of Biggie Smalls, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino. I’d be listening to rap music, and someone would say, No, that’s not [the accent] for Polish Brooklyn. Then you go to Polish Brooklyn, and there’s all these different accents there!
