Russell Crowe may be the best actor of our generation. He's one serious dude, but Gladiator and movies such as The Insider showcase this Aussie at the top of his game. He's also starred in A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, American Gangster, Robin Hood, and 2012's Les Miserables.

Crowe won an Academy Award for Gladiator and has been nominated other times. He's a big fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and hails from New Zealand.
