Crowe as Robin Hood

04.20.2009

USA Today has our first look at Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott`s upcoming epic ROBIN HOOD and upon seeing the photo one thing is for certain--Russell Crowe is back. Many will argue that he never actually left, but after so many roles that featured long ponytails, big beards, and even bigger guts, it`s nice to see a leaner Crowe with his GLADIATOR-esque Caesar cut, holding a big, medieval weapon--in this case Robin`s iconic bow. There`s been a lot of mystery surrounding this film, but with the full cast set, and this awesome early image, things are definitely looking up for Robin and his merry men.

To answer your question Duece, Hollywood last attempt at this story was a shitty movie starring Kevin Costner. It needs the Ridley Scott treatment. Crowe is a great actor playing an iconic role. I just hope it's more Gladiator and less Kingdom of Heaven.

pardon me

if i'm straying from any point, but does this robin hood costume look supremely weak to anybody else? ugg boots, fine denim and a bass co. shirt seem to be the providers for costume. i got hopes for this film regardless, but yikes on that

i've never been big on russell crowe. other than "a beautiful mind", he has just played the same character. i didnt really agree with his best actor nom for gladiator. its like every movie he's in, it's russell crowe playing the character of russell crowe

jesus.. relax shmoes. The statement of is Crowe Back has nothing to do with his A-list acting credibilities and the fact that he's arguably the best actor working today. It's that instead of being a dude with marriage problems in American gangster, cia agent in body of lies, or a chubby long haired journalist in state of play, it's that he is back to being the Maximus/Bud White buff ass kicking mother fucker that we all want to see him do more of.

That's a run on sentence but I stand by

That's a run on sentence but I stand by it... and yes, he's my favorite actor working today. And yes, I'm fucking pumped to see this pic!

What kinda question is that?

Crowe's always been on his A-game. And given Crowe's track record, he's going to be one bad-ass Robin Hood.

It'll be interesting to see Russell Crowe interpretation of the character coz the man's got talent I agree that he NEVER left.

More like, over-looked.

Top Shelf Actor

Russell Crowe has always been a top shelf actor-I'm always impressed how well he melds into all the various characters hes played over the years-reminds me of another talent- Gary Oldman.

it's great to see crowe in a movie that's not political. I'm kinda gettin tired of him playing the same role. This movie could be pretty good.

"He looks like Maximus", which is exactly why I love this photo! Bring on Maximus II and whip that BBC pussy-boy Robin Hood into shape.

Maximus as Robin Hood = A good thing. Holy shit, bring on 2010.

(But yeah, decide on a title, "Robin Hood" is just... Robin Hood, you know.)

Neato

That's a solid costume, and I'm looking forward to this movie; but I'm not liking the dark blue or black of the pants. They just don't match the earth-tones that are synonymous with Robin Hood. It's no biggie though, I just would've preferred green or brown pants.

HU HA

Tres Cool pic! Thank god he has lost some weight. I understand for certain roles it can come in handy but not if your playing an action hero that ends up looking like the tubby Sheriff of Nottingham himself.

I'm looking forward to the movie. I would just like for them to keep ''Nottingham'' as the title, makes it different than just another Robin Hood movie.
