Is rounded with a sleep.

IT’S safe to say Hollywood star Russell Crowe hasn’t lost touch with his community.
The 52-year-old jumped at the opportunity to help re-net Woolloomooloo’s public basketball hoops in the lead up to a community event.
Woolloomoolivin’ organiser Rosano Martinez said he bumped into the Gladiator star while walking down the street about a fortnight ago.
“I caught up with him and gave him my card,” Mr Martinez said. “I told him what I was organising and he said I’d need proper nets.
“Later that evening he just called me.”
“He bought the official NBA nets and we brought the ladder,” Mr Martinez said. “People couldn’t believe what they were seeing.

Blake J. Harris: What was next for you? Virtuosity?
Brett Leonard: I did one film in between Lawnmower Man and Virtuosity, which is Hideaway with Jeff Goldblum, Christine Lahti, Alicia Silverstone and Jeremy Sisto. It’s one of my littler known films, it’s a supernatural thriller, but I’m very proud of it. And then out of those films, Paramount approached me.
Blake J. Harris: In what capacity?
Brett Leonard: Sherry Lansing and two producers, Gary Lucchesi and Howard Hawks Jr., they asked me to direct Virtuosity, which was in script development form at the time. And then I came on board and was very much a part of developing the script with the studio. [laughs] At one point, this is little known stuff, that I don’t think I’ve talked about much: Michael Douglas was attached to the film.
Blake J. Harris: Really? In the Russell Crowe role?
Brett Leonard: No, no, no. In the Denzel Washington role. He was the first because Sherry had a real relationship with him and I met with him and we got along. He saw my movie and he was a fan. Then he had a knee injury and called me up and said, “Look, I can’t run around. And this is a movie where I gotta run all the whole time; your movie is a big running movie. So I’m gonna go do The American President instead.” And he did. And I’m glad he did, because I love that movie.
Blake J. Harris: Yeah.
Brett Leonard: And then Sherry turned to me and said, “Go get me Denzel.” [laughs] And I literally had to hypnotize Denzel to get him in this movie. I met him on the set of Crimson Tide, he was shooting at the time with Tony Scott. We’re there on this slanted bridge and I’m describing virtual reality. And no one knew what the fuck this thing was at that time, right? He’s like, “I have no idea what you’re talking about, but I think my son would love it. So let me think about this.” And because of his son wanting him to do science fiction, and being into these kind of concepts, he said yes. That was a big moment. He had not done any science fiction at that time. He hadn’t done anything like that. And it was rare for an actor like him to do that because there was a different audience for science fiction. There’s a prejudice and stigma to doing those types of films. But Denzel didn’t care and he’s just an amazing actor; it was an absolute honor to work with him. And then when it came time to find the villain, I had this one wild meeting with Robert Downey Jr. He was not in the best shape at that time.
Blake J. Harris: Ha, sure.
Brett Leonard: It was prior to his Tony Stark days. But I loved him. He’s amazing. But it was just too wild, too wild [laughs].
Blake J. Harris: So how’d you end up with RC?
Brett Leonard: My manager Steve Freedman and I had found this tape of this movie called Romper Stomper, which was a New Zealand independent movie that very few people saw here in the states. And it was Russell Crowe playing the character of Hando, this white supremacist gang leader. And this guy is heinous. I mean, he rapes his girlfriend, assaults Vietnamese immigrants…but you love him. Who the fuck is this guy? And I wanted a villain who was so charismatic you couldn’t help but fall in love with him. And here was this guy that was evil as hell. So I went to Deborah Aquila, who was the head of casting for Paramount at the time. One of the top casting directors in the business for many, many years and she agreed with me that he was amazing. So we went to Sherry together and we got them to let us do a screen test (which I had to pay for).
Blake J. Harris: Speaking of which, did you have to pay for that 20-minute Lawnmower Man “educational” film?
Brett Leonard: Oh yeah, oh yeah.
Blake J. Harris: Good for you.
Brett Leonard: You need to do whatever it takes to make your case. Anyway, so we had the screen test. I flew Russell over on my own dime. We had the screen test and Denzel was very impressed as well. Denzel approved him and so did Sherry and I got Russell Crowe to play the villain.
Blake J. Harris: That launched a pretty good career for Mr. Crowe…
Brett Leonard: Yeah, well, there’s this famous marketing meeting where we screened the film. The screening went very well, but the head of marketing stood up and said, “Well, great, we’ve got a fucking Russell Crowe film.” Because he was an unknown. They didn’t know how to market it because he was so strong in the movie.
Blake J. Harris: Ha!
Brett Leonard: You know, he was an equal presence with Denzel…
