@russellcrowe – I haven’t been approached by anyone to play Rupert Murdoch. That’s just a beat up.I am off to build a boat.Will be gone for quite some time.
@russellcrowe – no sails, no engine, runs purely on faith…does it bug anyone else that Noah’s sons are named in the bible…but not his wife…#re-write
