So far in Peaky Blinders, we’ve been treated to Tom Hardy and Paddy Considine as incredible guest stars. Along with the blinding lights of Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill leading the charge, it’s no surprise the BBC series is going from strength to strength.

With series three just wrapping up on BBC 2, and a fourth and fifth series in the works, it’s time to have a peek into the future and see who could be knocking on Tommy Shelby’s door down the line.

Forgive me for aiming high, but with the calibre of the supporting cast and the storylines on offer, wouldn’t you like to see the producers bag one of these little beauties to take on a Brummy accent and steal the show from under Cillian Murphy’s angelic little face?

Christian Bale

Picture it. A Murphy/Hardy/Bale face-off. Fireworks flew when Murphy and Hardy went toe to toe without resorting to violence in series 3. Imagine if Tom Hardy’s old nemesis from The Dark Knight Rises showed up to light a fuse right under both their noses. This Batman trilogy reunion would pit The Scarecrow, Bane and Batman against each other without the need for masks, capes or hallucinogens. and if Bale could rant at Tommy Shelby half as well as he rants at cinematographers on film sets, prepare for something spectacular. American Psycho vs the Peaky Blinders.

Daniel Day-Lewis

He was Bill the Butcher for Martin Scorsese in Gangs of New York. Imagine a fourth season of Peaky Blinders that gets the Oscar-winning Day-Lewis on board as a gang leader as mad and bad as the Butcher. I reckon he’d fit right in. All together now Daniel Plainview fans: “I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!”

Kate Winslet

Forget all the testosterone flying around for a minute and imagine the possibility of Winslet stepping in as a matriarchal figurehead of a rival gang. She’s recently done sadistic psycho Russian mob leader in Triple 9, so would surely be up to the challenge of taking the Peaky Blinders down a peg or two. Seeing Winslet stare down our Aunt Polly would be a sight to behold.

Gary Oldman

As good as Paddy Considine is, and as terrifyingly intelligent as his Father John Hughes became in series 3, he was no match for Sam Neill’s Inspector Campbell who was given a lot longer to descend into an absolutely irredeemable pleb. Peaky Blinders needs a new psycho and Gary Oldman (or the next guy on this list) is the man for the job. Tom Hardy worked with him on Lawless, so needs to call in a favour and get Sirius Black on board.

Ralph Fiennes

Or, if Oldman isn’t available, get Ralph Fiennes. You want a psycho to go up against Tommy Shelby? I give you Amon Goeth, Lord Voldemort, Harry from In Bruges. Say no more.
