Därför tackade Russell Crowe nej till rollen som Aragorn

Han har spelat gladiator, visselblåsare, snille, polis och allt där i mellan men han har inte gestaltat Tolkien-riddaren Aragorn, den gamle Crowe, och detta eftersom han efter att ha erbjudits rollen kunde tyda en viss tveksamhet i Peter Jacksons röst. Detta avslöjade nyligen Russell Crowe i en intervju med brittiska livsstilsblaskan GQ och då lät det såhär:

"I was a big Tolkien reader when I was a kid, so I got quite excited about the idea of Lord of the Rings. But I very much felt the studio were making that decision, not the film director. And I talked to Peter Jackson over the phone, and he wasn’t saying the sort of things that directors were saying to you if they were really trying to attract you to a project. And I just kind of got a sense that he already had somebody else in mind that he wanted to do. And me stepping forward and saying yes was actually going to get in his way. We come from the same place, so there’s a nuance in that conversation that other people might not hear -we’re both New Zealanders – in his own way without him saying anything negative, that he had another plan. So I just left it at that"

Castingen av Viggo Mortensen som Aragorn är mest troligt den bästa i samtliga tre Sagan om ringen-filmer vilket såklart innebär att Crowe tog helt rätt beslut. Eller vad säger du?
