“RoboCop” casting rumor targets Russell Crowe


Posted by on

Has Russell Crowe turned into the most wanted man in Hollywood over the past two days? It certainly seems like that might be the case. Yesterday it was reported that Akiva Goldsman is trying to land Crowe to star in his directorial debut “Winter’s Tale,” and then later in the day it was revealed that Darren Aronofsky has him in his wish list for “Noah.” Then at the very end of the day, there was a new story saying that MGM really wants the “Gladiator” star for their “RoboCop” remake. Talk about a busy line-up.

The news comes from Variety‘s Jeff Sneider, who revealed in a tweet, “Sure, Russell Crowe, MIGHT star in Aronofsky’s NOAH… but do you know what else he MIGHT star in? Three words: Ro. Bo. Cop.”

To clarify, that’s about as close as one can get to speculation without outright pulling a name out of thin air. Sneider went on to clarify in his later tweets that the Crowe-for-“RoboCop” story was mostly rumor, and that he’s heard other names being linked to the project as well.

“I’ve heard several names for RoboCop including some VERY unusual ones. In case you’re wondering, Kid Rock is not among them,” he tweeted.

Personally, we liked the idea of Michael Fassbender starring in the remake, but Crowe would be a good choice too. However, we think it seems most likely that Crowe will end up starring in “Winter’s Tale” over the other two high profile projects, depending on when they start filming.

When Fassbender was asked about his connection to “RoboCop” in November, he said he was open to starring in the film. “It could be kind of fun. It could be kind of good to have a helmet that I could hide behind, for most of the film, too. That sounds kind of appealing,” he said.

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
