Russell Crowe Set to Anchor Noah

by at . Comments

It has been confirmed in a bold stroke of casting: Russell Crowe is set to play that biblical hero, Noah. That’s right -- the Australian actor has taken on the role of the man who, according to the beloved Bible story, gathered the world’s creatures two-by-two when told by God that he was set to flood the world.

Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky has signed on to direct and we believe the combination of those two talents will make for one truly special film.

Not that Movie Fanatic ever had an image in mind of what the Ark-master would look like, but given Crowe’s rugged good looks, we think we have a match made in… well, heaven!

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.
