How could such a despicable individual, with such lack of character, even be considered to portray such an honored person?

Lest we forget:
Russell Crowe was arrested and charged for allegedly throwing a telephone at an employee of the Manhattan hotel where he was staying.
Crowe, 41, who plays a boxer in his latest film,“Cinderella Man,” allegedly threw the phone at the concierge at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo,“hitting him in the face and causing a laceration and substantial pain,” according to the complaint.
The Australian movie star was arraigned on charges of second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon — the telephone — before Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Martin Murphy.
His publicist says that his only regret for throwing a phone at a hotel clerk in 2005 was having to apologize for doing it, insisting that it was humiliating, to have to show remorse when all he was truly sorry about was the fact that he was in so much trouble.

Insists he doesn't have a bad temper - blaming his violent streak on his masculinity.

Also, a bit tastless and premature, I think to be talking like this SO soon !.. Give the family a respectful and adequate 'mourning' period .....Make a film much later on at a more appropriate time....[just my take on it]

You might dislike his behaviour (and that is understandable), but you can't deny he is a great actor.....and I think he would be great in the part and do it true justice....if he is true to acting form.....
