Venom Movie Cast
Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom.
Eddie is an investigative journalist who is looking into the harmful human experiments of the scientific company- The Life Foundation. Who doesn’t love Tom Hardy? He is one of my favorite actors.
- Hardy has won 2 British Independent Film Awards for Best Actor. First, for his role as Michael Gordon Peterson/Charles Bronson in the 2008- Bronson.
- Second, for his role as identical twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray in the 2015- Legend.
Michelle Williams as Anne Weying
Anne is Eddie’s girlfriend, who is employed by a firm that has ties to The Life Foundation.

- These include a Golden Globe Award, an Independent Spirit Award and a Hollywood Film Festival Award.
- She also played in Brokeback Mountain, one of my absolute favorite movies, and she did such an amazing job playing the role of Alma in that movie.
Riz Ahmed as Dr. Carlton Drake
Blake is the head of The Life Foundation; a scientist who dislikes humankind and has a fascination with symbiotes.
- Ahmed is well-known for his role as Naz Khan in the 2016 television miniseries- The Night Of.
- In fact, he has won a few Best TV Lead Actor awards for his role, including a Gold Derby Award, an Online Film & Television Association Award and a Primetime Emmy Award.
- (I have never seen any of his work, but judging from the movie trailers, he seems like he has a great deal of talent. What do you guys think)?
Jenny Slate as Dora Skirth
Skirth is a scientist working at The Life Foundation.
- Slate is probably best known for her voice role as Tammy Larsen in the animated television sitcom- Bob’s Burgers.
- Also, she won the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actress in a Comedy, for her role as Donna Stern in the 2014- Obvious Child.
- (She is another one whose works I haven’t seen, but again, from the looks of the movie trailers, she looks like a pretty good actress).

Tom Hardy isn’t the first actor to play the role of Eddie Brock/Venom.
- Topher Grace played the role in the 2007- Spider-Man 3. Grace also played Eric Forman, the main character in That ’70s Show.
- Fun fact, there are only two degrees of separation between Topher and the cast of Venom, according to the Oracle of Bacon. He played in a movie with at least one actor who, in turn, played in a movie with each of the four main characters.
- Head’s up, if you visit the 6-Degrees generator, be prepared to go down the rabbit hole! I can spend hours finding links between actors, trying to stump the Oracle!
