Russell Crowe: American Gangster Movie

It would seem that Russell Crowe‘s character in the upcoming crime thriller American Gangster has a little problem with devoting himself to one religion. While filming different scenes for the movie, Russell was seen sporting gold necklaces with different pendants on them: a Crucifix (principal symbol of the Christian religion) and the Star of David (generally recognized symbol of Judaism). Russell, 42, plays tough cop Detective Ritchie Roberts in 1970′s Harlem who busts up a drug ring. American Gangster is set for 2007 release.  More pictures in the gallery!

It’s probably "just jewelry" to him….I don’t like him anyway.

Maybe it’s something to do with the character in the movie. I know he’s not Jewish, but like Sarah-Jean said, it might be just jewelry to him.

Looks like I’m in the minority but I love this guy. He’s hunky in kind of a bad boy, tough guy way. Not to mention he gives solid performances in all the roles he takes on….A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, even Master and Commander, a movie I would never peg as one that I’m particularly drawn to, but his riveting portrayal had me hooked all the way through.Nice package.

Thanks for the pics! Can’t believe how open the set has been. Russ is of a Christian faith in real life, but has collected artifacts from different faiths. However, this is acting and he’s in costume (I’ll bet he keeps those, however :) and anyone with half a brain wouuld know he’s wearing those for his character, a real-life person, so we’ll find out in the movie what it’s all about. Could just be undercover with the cross if he’s known as a Jewish cop.

Awesome pictures as usual… any way you could swing by here in Quebec to take pics of Christian Bale? ;)

Thanks, Jared. Awesome pic as usual.

Of course the jewelry change is for the film character… he’s in costume, on set. He’s making a film… these pictures aren’t of his "real life’., they’re of him in character. And aren’t we lucky to see them all. TY Jared.He’s a fantastic actor, and no, uh_oh, you’re not in the minority.

Great pics Jared. Russell looks great.

I always love that smile on Russell, he looks so cute. Thanx for these pics.

Russell looks gorgeous as usual, the film looks awesome, and I can not wait to see it. Thanks for the great pics, Jared!

Best actor in the world! Love him! Who cares about jewelry..

hey, that crucifix looks like the body of Christ is still on it. this would indicate the Catholic faith. the one of the Christian faith would not have the body of Christ on it.

……..:-0

crucifix = cross w/ Jesus’ body on it. the one russell’s wearing looks like a plain cross to me.also, the crucifix isn’t strictly indicative of catholic faith. some lutherans & anglicans use it as well

He is Greatt.. I love Russell Crowe’s movies. He does a Superb Preformance in them.. I cant wait to see this one.

russell is hot as usual
