“A lot of things that you learn about Roger you have to take with a grain of salt because he was a very theatrical man,” the actor said of the late Fox News founder, whom he portrays in the upcoming Showtime series ‘The Loudest Voice.’
Russell Crowe made a stop at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night, where he talked about becoming unrecognizable for Showtime’s upcoming series The Loudest Voice.

In Showtime’s The Loudest Voice, the rise and fall of Roger Ailes are chronicled, with Crowe taking on the leading role of the late Fox News founder.

The billboard was vandalized by the same secretive troupe that laid down dozens of Donald Trump stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year.

Showtime marketing executives may want to take a closer look at a giant Los Angeles billboard that promotes their Roger Ailes miniseries, The Loudest Voice, because it’s not what they paid for.

What a deal!

Russell Crowe revealed in a new interview on The Howard Stern Show that he once drunkenly bought a dinosaur skull from his pal Leonardo DiCaprio — for a cool $35,000.

“I bought it for my kids and, cut myself a little bit of slack, there was a bunch of vodka involved in that transaction,” Crowe, 55, said, explaining that he was drinking at DiCaprio’s house at the time he offered to buy the skull.

“I think [DiCaprio] started the conversation,” he continued. “He was like, ‘I’ve got this one but there’s another one coming onto the market that I want so I’m trying to sell that one.’ I said, ‘I’ll buy it.’”

A sequel to Ridley Scott’s swords and sandals epic Gladiator has been in the offing since at least 2001, a year after the first movie unleashed hell.

Since then, it’s been through various incarnations, among them being a ‘multi-generational prequel’, which would perhaps have allowed Russell Crowe, slain in the first movie, to potentially return in Godfather II style.

But now there’s a tidbit of news from the movie’s producers.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are doing the rounds for the current movie, Men In Black: International, and were asked about the progress of Gladiator 2 by HeyUGuys.

“We’re working with Ridley, that’s one we wouldn’t touch unless we felt in a way to do it was legitimate. We’re working with an amazing writer as well, Peter Craig,” said MacDonald.

Added Parkes: “It picks up the story 30 years later… 25 years later.”

It’s thought that writer Craig, who adapted the Hunger Games books for the screen, and has been working on the new Top Gun movie, Top Gun: Maverick, is centring the story on the now grown-up son of Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus

Russell Crowe is unrecognizable as Ailes and Naomi Watts as his nemesis Gretchen Carlson in ‘The Loudest Voice,’ the controversial series exploring the rise to power and swift fall of an abusive news pioneer who changed America: “Without Ailes, there is definitely no Trump.”

Russell Crowe collapses into his makeup chair at the end of another long production day, as a trio of artists begins peeling the layers of Roger Ailes off his face. Slabs of silicone fall to the floor: First, it’s cheek meat, then paper-thin slivers of his neck. Over the next hour, the Oscar winner transforms back into himself, his face considerably slimmer than the late Fox News founder’s, his head still endowed with a thick coat of hair.

“By the time we reach the end, I’ll have spent over 12 days of my life in this chair,” says Crowe, cigarette smoke wafting through the trailer. “Twelve. Fucking. Days.”
