Tom Hardy cradled fans into the new year by reading them a bedtime story on national television.
The “Taboo” star surprised U.K. fans when he appeared on the nightly BBC program “CBeebies”. Hardy welcomed viewers to the show with a drowsy dog on his lap, a top hat in hand, and stuffed animals out the wazoo. “Hello. I’m Tom, and this is Woody and we’ve been invited to a very special party on tonight’s ‘Bedtime Stories’ and we’ve been told to wear a hat,” he began.
Hardy, 39, lulled viewers to sleep by reading the bedtime story “You Must Bring a Hat” by Simon Philip and Kate Hindley.
The full video is only available in the United Kingdom, but you can watch a teaser clip above.
