I Just Found Out Russell Crowe Turned Down Playing A Lead In Lord Of The Rings. Does He Regret It?


Whether it’s through the theatrical re-release of the original trilogy or the upcoming 2024 movie The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, author J.R.R. Tolkien’s creation continues to thrive. So of course when something this mythic continues to enter people’s minds, it presents an opportunity to keep learning new bits of trivia.

For instance, I just found out that Russell Crowe of all people turned down a pretty huge role in director Peter Jackson’s first series of LOTR adaptations. What’s better is, Crowe himself addresses this possibility, and whether or not he regretted passing on it, in true New Zealander fashion.
