Russell Crowe Loses The Gut & Gains A Bow & Arrow…Where’s The Feather In The Cap Though?
McPaper has the first look at Russell Crowe as Robin Hood in Ridley Scott’s aptly-titled, “Robin Hood”. He’s got the “Gladiator” hair going, so that must mean he is back to being a ripped-up badass in this flick. Oddly enough, I was getting used to seeing the chunky Russell Crowe from “American Gangster” and “State Of Play” (which I saw this weekend, review later today).
Was Robin Hood a man of the people or…a socialist? Hmm…here is a quote from producer Brian Grazer: “He’s trying to create equality in a world where there are a lot of injustices. He’s a crusader for the people, trying to reclaim some of the ill-gotten gains of the wealthy. That’s a universal theme.” Distribution of wealth!
Cinematically Correct note: Who was your favorite Robin Hood? Personally, I like the fox from the 1973 Disney cartoon.
