A few days ago, Jeff Goldblum was spotted hanging out with the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder in a rugby game in Australia, prompting fans including myself to speculate if he was joining the movie. Coincidentally, included in that get-together but wasn’t photographed was Russell Crowe, whom Deadline is reporting to be actually included in the cast in a mystery role. According to the trade, the role is being kept secret but is intended to be a big surprise.
I’m not even going to try to guess who he’s playing because he could literally be playing anyone. All I know is that Taika Waititi’s second outing with the God of Thunder is going to have a stacked list of cameos. Matt Damon, Melissa McCarthy, Sam Neil, Jeff Goldblum, and now the gladiator himself, Russell Crowe are all part of the ensemble for potentially bite-sized appearances. The set of Thor: Love and Thunder seems like the cool party bus everyone just wants to a good time in.
