Russell Crowe was in Sydney today to make an important announcement; he informed fans that he will be taking part in Ben Hur: The Stage Spectacular. The performance will take place at the ANZ Stadium in October, and Russell will narrate the performance. Ben Hur was originally a novel, which was then transformed into a film in 1959.
Russell, who won an Academy Award for his performance in Gladiator, decided to leave the action scenes for other stars this time.
At his announcement, Russell also spoke about his Twitter and how he decided to quit smoking for his son.
