Russell Crowe turned down the chance to play what superhero?
It”s hard to imagine another actor playing Wolverine – the role Australian actor Hugh Jackman made his own. But as it turns out, Russell Crowe could also have landed the part. So why did Crowe say no? Funny enough, he was concerned that he would be typecast as an actor associated with wolves. After all, Crowe”s character in “Gladiator” had a wolf companion and a wolverine is, uh, similar to a wolf … I guess? Source: news.com.au

People accuse me of being arrogant all the time. I’m not arrogant, I’m focused.
I like villains because there’s something so attractive about a committed person – they have a plan, an ideology, no matter how twisted. They’re motivated.
There’s nothing like sitting back and talking to your cows.
