Russell Crowe was good in "The Insider," yeah. But it wasn't until he chopped off a bunch of people's heads in "Gladiator" that Hollywood decided that the guy's worth the money. Today's Daily Variety says Crowe, 35, will ask for $15 million for his next picture -- just shy of Jim Carrey's $20 million neighborhood.
So what's his next picture? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's in talks to star in Ron Howard's "A Beautiful Mind," a biopic about a math genius with schizophrenia.
Be sure to bring the entire family.
