UFC superstar Conor McGregor played a key role in bringing to life Tom Hardy’s character in the upcoming film Venom.

Hardy told Ireland’s RTE Entertainment that he based his version of Eddie Brock in the upcoming Venom movie on mixed martial artist Conor McGregor. In Venom, Brock, a journalist, bonds with an alien symbiotic life form to become a creature with amazing power and strength.

“The studio wanted somebody who could fight, which they always do in these sort of hero movies,” Hardy told RTE. “They want somebody who can have a scrap. Conor obviously wants to have a scrap with everybody, so that’s useful.”

“There were more elements of Eddie Brock which needed to be pinned on somebody who’s incredibly handy physically,” he explained. “And, obviously, Conor is incredibly handy physically.”

“Conor doesn’t strike me as the type of person who might be that bothered,” he said.

Hardy will be playing the dual roles of Eddie Brock and Venom in the movie that is scheduled to be released Oct. 5 in India.
