Jai Courtney on working with Russell Crowe

Jai Courtney talks about meeting Russell Crowe at Daily Telegraph

Excerpt: When you first met Russell Crowe a few years ago, he told you that you’d been doing some terrible movies. If he saw your résumé now would it be up to his standards?

(Laughs.) He didn’t say terrible, but he did take the piss out of me a little bit. He was poking fun and trying to get a rise out of me to see what I was made of, and working with someone like Russell, you’ve got to be on your toes. That was probably, in a strange way, my first audition with him. If that conversation had gone down really awkwardly, I’m not sure he would’ve wanted to work with me. So we had a laugh and a drink, and before long we were getting ready to do a movie (The Water Diviner) together. That was a dream come true for me.

Gladiator remembered in Morocco

Toronto Star – Film geeks will adore Morocco

OUARZAZATE, MOROCCO-Like the handful of other homes within the mud-walled village of Ait Benhaddou, Mohamed Kachir’s living room has two things: a vertical loom for weaving the colourful Berber carpets famous throughout Morocco and a portrait of Russell Crowe.

Kachir, 31, a part-time tour guide, was 15 when he first met the star, when Crowe and director Ridley Scott came to “the door of the desert” near Morocco’s High Atlas mountains in 1999 to films scenes for the Oscar-winning drama Gladiator.

“Russell Crowe was good,” recalls Kachir before pouring mint tea for visitors. Photo albums hold pictures from the Gladiator set, along with stills from other films shot at Ait Benhaddou, including Babel, Kingdom of Heaven and from Kachir’s last job as an extra, TV’s Game of Thrones.
