Ray Winstone Wins ‘Noah’ Fat Bad Guy Role

Admittedly, I’m not as up on the Bible as others but were you aware that the Patriarch Noah had a nemesis? Apparently it is so because that’s the direction Darren Aronofsky is going with his epic film, Noah. And doughy, British tough guy Ray Winstone has got the part.

Originally, Liam Neeson and Val Kilmer were being considered for the role because Aronofsky wanted someone with “grit and size to be convincing as he goes head to head against [Russell] Crowe’s Noah character.” So… fat guys wrestling? That does sound epic. Though nothing more is known about this nemesis, let’s hope that Aronofsky doesn’t intend for this rivalry to lead to the bedroom as it did in Black Swan. Do not want. (Deadline)
