Michael Mann’s tobacco industry whistle-blower drama belongs to a distinct moment in the history of truth, American politics, the press, and corporate power.

“So you think it had to do with the way the film was marketed,” said Charlie Rose in 2000—the glory days of that eponymous show, when Rose was still empowered to ask the questions, rather than being subject to them. His guest was Michael Mann, whose film, the whistle-blower thriller The Insider, was a confirmed letdown at the box office.

How is Roger Ailes like Winston Churchill? That’s probably not a question that gets asked very often, but in addition to both being high-powered political figures, they’re both the subjects of two screen portrayals at around the same time — one on film and one on TV. And just like with Churchill a couple of years ago, both portrayals of Ailes could be awards bait: Russell Crowe in the Showtime limited series “The Loudest Voice” and John Lithgow in the film “Bombshell.”

An Oscar-winning actor and one of the biggest personalities in film culture of the past three decades, Russell Crowe has made a successful career as a leading man across some of the most publicized blockbusters ever made and the most intimate of independent dramas. From Australia to Hollywood, his intensity as an actor would help him forge working relationships with several great filmmakers (particularly Ridley Scott) before becoming a director and producer himself.

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.

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.
