Ray Winstone May Play Villain in Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

Ray WinstoneSeemingly not a week goes by without major casting news surrounding Darren Aronofsky‘s upcoming biblical epic Noah — and this week is no exception.

Veteran British actor Ray Winstone is reportedly considering an offer to play the villain in the film, which would pit him against Russell Crowe‘s title character (and his ark).

Just last week, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Douglas Booth were in various stages of negotiations to join the film, due for release in 2014, while Jennifer Connelly was recently attached to play Noah’s wife — but that is apparently no longer a certainty.

Winstone, no stranger to playing the villain, is fresh off a meaty role in the recently released blockbuster Snow White and the Huntsman.
