Crowe will be Sheriff and Robin Hood
Some new information about Ridley Scott's Nottingham is out. According to Ridley Scott, Russell Crowe will not only be playing the Sheriff of Nottingham, he'll also be playing Robin Hood himself.
The first part we knew about, but the second is a surprise. Wonder how that will work.
He’s playing both!
Crowe was already down to play the Sheriff of Nottingham. And rumours had already started about who would be playing Robin Hood in the film. Christian Bale's name was mentioned as a possible. But Scott says Crowe will play both roles, while being guarded about how it would work. He says it will be:
...a good old clever adjustment of characters. One becomes the other. It changes.
Sounds like a crazy idea. I wonder how different Crowe will look in each role. Will it work to have the same actor playing both? Can Russell Crowe pull both off?
