So there’s this whole Noah movie in production, and yesterday we saw our first look of Russell Crowe sporting some antediluvian fashion, and my first reaction of course was YUCK. Biblical epics only work for me if you’ve got Victor Mature in a loincloth and Gina Lollobrigida in a fabulous gold headdress. Fat Russell Crowe in a burlap sack? Not so much. I figured we might get a decent CGI flood and some cute animals at BEST. Then I checked out the IMDB page and saw that Noah’s sons (Ham and Shem) are being played by Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth, and THAT perked up my interest. Get THEM in some loincloths and WE GOT OURSELVES A MOVIE! I also see that the deliciously named Finn Wittrock will be playing somebody named Young Tubal Cain. Back in 2010, I mentioned Finn as somebody to watch, based solely on a shirtless scene from All My Children that sent me OVER THE MOON (below, left). He’s currently on Broadway playing Happy Loman in Death of A Salesman (with Andrew Garfield), so he’s STILL somebody worth watching. Throw in Emma Watson as Douglas’ love interest, and I’m suddenly VERY EXCITED about Noah.
