Russell Crowe, who will soon be seen in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming, larger-than-life, Noah, will be sporting a scruffy and older look in the grand story about Noah and the Ark.
Russell, who plays the role of the protagonist ‘Noah’ in the film, builds an arch, saving animals and his family from the deluge that befalls man. The role required the actor to portray the character that lives for several hundred years, resulting in an older looking Russell, with salt-and-pepper beard and long hair. The ace actor went all out to make his character's journey on the famed Ark look as realistic as possible. The journey of his character spreads across decades, with his look changing as the character progresses. Russell recently shared on Twitter, “Noah lived until he was 940 years old...probably going to be a long movie.”
Born in New Zealand, the legendary actor rose to fame with his Academy Award winning role in the historical epic blockbuster film, Gladiator. He then stunned the critics with his role in ‘A Beautiful Mind’, going on to win the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, for the 2001 Biographical drama. He recently starred in Man of Steel, where he played Jor-El, the father of Superman.
Audiences across the globe are very excited to watch Russell play Noah’s character in this stunning film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope. Noah also stars Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly as Noah’s wife Naameh, as well as fellow Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and ‘Harry Potter’ actress Emma Watson.
Presented by Paramount Pictures, Noah is slated for release on . The film will be released by Viacom18 Motion Pictures in India.
