Initially, Tom Hardy claimed the role of Elton John. And now the producers have explained why this role went to Taron Egerton.
Producer Matthew Vaughn did not want Tom Hardy to play the role of John for two important reasons.
“ I really think that Tom Hardy is one of the best actors, but I felt that he was too old for the role , ” he explained. " And secondly, they said that the idea is that Tom is going to synchronize his lips ."
As a result, Egerton got the role of John, who had previously worked with Vaughn on his fighter, “The King. ”
The British actor also ended up singing the songs of John himself, which attracted John Elton himself and his husband David Furnish.
According to producer Jiles Martin, Elton John commented on Taron’s singing: “ I don’t think I heard someone sing my songs better than Taron .”
