A Goldfish with a Lincoln Log

According to news reports, Russell Crowe's next film project is going to be a biography of comedian Bill Hicks.
"I have another project based on the life of comedian Bill Hicks, which is going from treatment to draft stage with Kiwi writer Mark Staufer."

It is understood he is considering playing the main role of Hicks — a controversial and brilliant American comedian who battled drug and alcohol abuse before dying from cancer at 32.
No, no. You read that right. They're making a movie about cult icon and beloved bastard Bill Hicks, and the Gladiator wants to play him.

I'm having a hard time getting a read on my emotions here. I think I'm ... happy?

Hard to say. I think I need to lie down.

Crowe was bred for comedy. Check-out this line from Gladiator:

MAXIMUS: Five thousand of my men are out there in the freezing mud. Three thousand of them are bloodied and cleaved. Two thousand will never leave this place. I will not believe they fought and died for nothing.

Pure comedic gold!
