Re: Russell Crowe in talks to play Jor-El
I am glad they have a well known actor, and i'm sure Crowe brings a level of credibility to the film. Has he ever been in a superhero film before? I am quite surprised he's willing to get involved in one, and so it's good in those ways...
... but personally I really really HATE Russel Crowe. So that's just something i'm going to have to get over. Who knows, maybe this will be the moment he changes my mind.
In fact my initial shock is wearing off, and it is growing on me. There is something kind of cool about the idea. It's not what I wanted, but it could be pulled off really well.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
