What happened to Crow? He was The Man for awhile. Been awfully quiet for some time. I asked this before and found that he had appeared in a couple movies in the past few years. Playing Superman's dad is not a leading role.

Eighth Grade (2018), Bo Burnham, who also directed The Big Sick (2017), which qualifies for this thread also, imho.

It was funny! We went yesterday and had a good time. Lots of laughter in the audience. It was "stupid funny" (which I vastly prefer to "crude funny"). Kate McKinnion had the potential for taking it too far and making a scene/schtick un-funny. A couple times she skirted right up to the edge, but she kept it throttled back enough to keep the humor.

I think it is because he is older AND, apparently, is now very much out of shape. (Which is a shame because I have enjoyed so many of his movies, including "The Good Year", "Gladiator", "Les Miserables", and "Master and Commander".) https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbi...at-disneyland/

The age issue is what prompted my thread about stars we will miss. The golden years for Hollywood stardom are well below 60. Maybe 30-50?

Too bad about his health. He starred in several blockbusters back in the day:
Gladiator - huge hit
Master and Commander - has a certain and notable aura
A Beautiful Mind - showing off his acting chops
Les Miserables - wasn't that about the beginning of his "demise" though?

I think that Jeff Bridges and Russell Crowe have much in common regarding looks, age and talent, but Jeff Bridges has lately made a career out of playing old and grizzled types, whereas Russell Crowe has not. Of course, Bridges is 69 vs. Crowe's 54, but I hope that Crowe will rebound in the way Bridges did. Bridges went through a dry spell, too, when he hit his late 40's, but then starred in such movies as "Seabiscuit", "K-Pax", "True Grit", "Crazy Heart", and "Hell and High Water".
