Russel Crowe Might Play Bill Hicks

Tuesday, August 19 by

His name doesn’t have the same kind of mainstream recognition that guys like George Carlin and Richard Pryor had, but most stand-up comedy fans still consider Bill Hicks to be one of the best. Russel Crowe is reportedly in talks to play Hicks in a movie about his life, which ended after a short bout with pancreatic cancer in 1994. The news worries me a little because Bill’s biggest strength was being able to tell people to F-off and still seem like a nice guy. Russel Crowe tells people to F-off, but seems like an epic asshole. Anyways, here are a few Hicks clips to make you laugh at work and get in trouble with the boss. Source: Sydney Morning Herald
