Two agents dating the same girl
Hardy has a cute, rugged likeability factor and, after this, his fan base will increase and move on from being the man’s man actor that he is.

tells the story of two best friends Tuck (Tom Hardy) and FDR (Chris Pine) who also happen to be CIA operatives at the top of their game.
Tuck has an ex-wife and small son Joe and hasn’t really been on the dating circuit for a while, whereas FDR never really leaves the circuit as he is a ladies man through and through.
