From one cowboy to the next.? Seems Universal is targeting Russell Crowe to replace Brad Pitt in their high acting-octane flick A State of Play.? Crowe would become the investigative journalist if he accepts the role.? He’s got a lot lined up on his plate, but his presence in the movie pretty much guarantees it will be a worth while affair.
It’s expected that Crowe will make a yes or no decision sometime by the end of the week.? He does have the Ridley Scott project Nottingham in the immediate future, but both of those projects are set up at Universal, so it seems to reason the studio would accommodate the actor for both films, if that’s what the Aussie wants to do.
