OMG… Russell “The Gladiator” Crowe, is that really you? This photo taken just recently on the set of his new movie “Noah” shows a Russell Crowe that made me look twice. Mr. Crowe, I’m sorry about your recent divorce, but you’ve really let it go. Now I’m a little worried about this movie…

This 2014 film is about the Biblical Noah who suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge, and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood.

The casting is strong: Emma Watson (Harry Potter), Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, and the director Darren Aronofsky has done Black Swan, The Wrestler, The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream, all highly regarded movies.
