Russell Crowe Interview
Russell Crowe is not one to shy away from a challenge, so playing a tough-as-nails corrupt mayor in Broken City was a no-brainer. Broken City is a crime drama which also stars Mark Wahlberg as an ex-cop now working as a private detective. He gets a chance for redemption when New York Mayor Nicholas Hostetler (Russell Crowe) gives him a call. It turns out that the Mayor’s wife, Emily (Catherine Zeta-Jones), may be having an affair and he’s concerned it will interfere with his plans for re-election. But in the process of investigating Emily, Billy ends up stumbling across an even bigger scandal that will lead him into a trap he may not be able to escape from.
Tribute.ca spoke with Russell via satellite from Australia about playing a politician, working with his extraordinary co-star, his incredible year in film and what his sons think about him playing Jor-El (Superman’s father) in the upcoming Man of Steel.
