Russell Crowe as The Crocodile Hunter?

So I guess there was a silly little rumour floating around this weekend about Russell Crowe being interested in portraying The Crocodile Hunter in an upcoming Steve Irwin biopic. And if you believe that one, I’ve got another hot inside scoop about Tim Allen as Two-Face in the next Batman movie! Seriously though, it seems the rumour originated from The Sydney Morning Herald, but I’m sure it was only wishful thinking, seeing as Crowe is perhaps the most prominent Australian actor out there today. Even if someone was considering producing a Steve Irwin biopic (and I’m sure it’s way too soon for such a thing), just think how ridiculous it would be for a well-known actor to take on a role like that. I mean, how could you even do it and be taken seriously? A project like that has “disaster” written all over it. Anyway, Crowe apparently told one of his fansites that there’s no truth to the rumours in the first place. I don’t know about you, but I tend to believe him.

  • Yeah, that does seem like a recipe for disaster…. but, you should remember that Russell Crowe and Steve Irwin were close friends… who knows, he might do it.

  • Better a fellow Austrailian like Crowe than American twit.

    Sean,

    Kudos. You are apparently more astute than most other bloggers or entertainment sites, or even newspapers who are printing this fictitious Irwin project. It simply doesn’t exist.

    Paul Hogan anyone?
