Russell Crowe told the Sydney Morning Herald that he will play Bill Hicks in an upcoming film biography. Crowe, 44, is available for seven months due to a delay in filming Ridley Scott's "Nottingham." Crowe said: "I have another project based on the life of comedian Bill Hicks, which is going from treatment to draft stage with Kiwi writer Mark Staufer."
