The Oscar-winning actor dropped by Howard Stern to promote his Showtime Roger Ailes miniseries, ‘The Loudest Voice,’ and detailed a phone call he had with director Peter Jackson.

Russell Crowe came close to playing Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings trilogy — but he was put off by one phone call with director Peter Jackson.

In a recent interview with Howard Stern to promote his Showtime Roger Ailes miniseries The Loudest Voice (premiere numbers from Sunday were not impressive), the Oscar-winning actor explained why he said no to the blockbuster franchise, which would have resulted in a massive payday.

“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.’”

In the early 2000s, Russell Crowe was indisputably one of the biggest names in Hollywood. He got his start on TV back home in his native Australia, first appearing as Kenny Larkin in a few episodes of the popular soap opera Neighbours. In 1990, he landed his first film roles in Prisoners of the Sun and The Crossing. But it wasn’t until starring as Maximus Decimus Meridius in the film Gladiator that he really made his mark stateside. After his performance in Gladiator earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor, he went on to appear in other critically acclaimed films like A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man.

But recently, it seems like Crowe has dropped off the map, and he’s simply not acting as much these days. Here’s why you haven’t seen him on the big screen, and why he probably won’t get back to his former status as one of Hollywood’s most popular actors.

You win some, you lose some — and some of the winners are losers! Here are ten Best Pictures that still leave me gobsmacked wondering why they got gold.

A Beautiful Mind: The Academy, when faced with more challenging fare, often goes deep middle-brow. Ron Howard’s air-brushed 2001 biopic starring Russell Crowe as Nobel Prize winning schizophrenic mathematician John Nash sidesteps the not-so-pretty spousal abuse. Nash reportedly assaulted his wife (prettily played by Jennifer Connelly) at a faculty picnic where he held her neck down under the sole of his shoe. Antisemitism was another ugly attribute – not to mention the illegitimate child and the public indecency.

6. Russell Crowe
Russell Crowe might have been involved in the movie that launched the Worlds of DC with Man of Steel, but his Jor-El didn’t even get a flashback in Batman v Superman – and that’s probably as close as he’s got to a sequel.

It’s not for lack of trying, though, as Crowe has appeared in the likes of Robin Hood and The Mummy, both of which were meant to lead to sequels before various factors got in the way. We’re holding out hope that Shane Black sorts out a Nice Guys sequel – or maybe Maximus will end up popping up in Gladiator 2?

Britain’s Got Talent fans were stunned to see Hollywood actor Russell Crowe in the audience of one of the live semi-finals.

But it seems his visit to ITV has given the Gladiator actor an idea for a new career path.

Crowe has been discussing becoming a judge with Got Talent mogul Simon Cowell after they enjoyed dinner together.

If this is true, then it would be good for the programme 🙂
