Tom Hardy Isn’t Playing Mad Max In Furiosa

For Jacob Tomuri, performing a cameo as Max in “Furiosa” is a full-circle moment, as the first time he worked with Tom Hardy was on “Fury Road.” While speaking with Stuff, Tomuri mentioned that Charlize Theron’s stunt double, Dayna Grant, suggested him for the Mad Max flick. “It was a complete career-changer. Not knowing how hard it’d be was a blessing in disguise. I worked grueling six-day weeks for seven months then needed months to defrag,” the stunt performer said about his experience on director George Miller’s chaotic “Fury Road.” 

It’s no surprise that Tomuri’s strongest memory from “Mad Max” is how difficult the entire process was. “Mad Max: Fury Road” had tons of behind-the-scenes trouble, overcoming that adversity to become one of the greatest action films of all time. When Tomuri saw the film, he knew the hard work was worth it. “Tom and I snuck into a screening and I was captivated,” the stunt double told the outlet, adding, “Then I had goosebumps seeing my name when the credits rolled. I never dreamed of doing anything of that caliber.” Things haven’t changed, as Chris Hemsworth described “Furiosa” as his most stressful shoot yet. 

Following his impressive work on “Fury Road,” Tomuri became Hardy’s go-to guy, working with him on several subsequent projects. Because of how much Tomuri has done to help sell Hardy’s image on-screen, it makes perfect sense that Miller called him up for the Max cameo. 

“Furiosa” crashes into theaters on May 24.
