I’d love to have been a fly on the wall when Adam McKay told Russell Crowe that he wanted to cast him as a hyper-violent, angry guy. I really hope that Funny Or Die was around with a hidden camera to capture the ensuing carnage.

Despite the risk of being beaten about the head and neck, McKay has approached Crowe to play the lead role of Billy Butcher in The Boys. Based on the Garth Ennis graphic novel series, the story follows a secret CIA team that monitors and punishes hard partying, out-of-control superheroes. Crowe does seem interested but wants to wait until the first draft of the script is handed in. Then he’ll be ready to give notes on how to properly shatter someone’s face by hitting them with nothing more than their own forehead. (MTV)

Like Will Ferrell running around naked except for a Superman cape. He can study my neighbor's kid for the role. Seriously, though. Put some pants on that kid. He's six. (EW)
