Russell Crowe joins the cast of Ben-Hur-The Stadium Spectacular in Sydney as the narrator

Gladiator Russell Crowe Joins the Cast Of Ben-Hur

Remember when Russell Crowe was sexy? Well, Rusty is going back to those ancient days of Rome and channelling a little Gladiator love in Ben Hur—The Stadium Spectacular. The show is a massive live production based on the Hollywood movie that will be held at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on October 22 and 23. The $15 million live adaptation will feature a cast of 200, a full-scale chariot race and a sea battle in the stadium-turned-Roman amphitheatre. Russell will be the narrator for the production, but there’s no word on whether he’s donning a skirt and sandals for his new role.
