    Russell Crowe is 56 :D

    Yeah, but he doesn't look a day over 54. {[]

    But he could resemble the apparent age of Richard Burton. My impression of Smith is that he's a venerable warhorse who's been around forever and knows everyone (and everyone knows him). His easy relationship with Mary, for instance, suggests that they've worked together several times over the years, probably even before the war. He also feels like a father figure (in a way) to the rest of the team.

    Also, Crowe has real charisma and screen presence. You'd absolutely believe him in the role, as long as he slimmed down again/got into shape.

    If you still can't get over the 'Crowe is too old' factor, maybe Tom Ellis or Joel Edgerton?

    I'm trying to think like a movie director or producer and they are perhaps not well knoww enough to headline a big movie. This isn't a watertight argument, because the same could have been said about Russell Crowe when they made LA Confidential too.

    Crowe is maybe a little old, but I agree he would have been great for it.

    'Tell him he's a renegade.'

    Crowe would rock that.

    Yeah I thought he was much younger than late thirties in that.

    It’s hard to think of a British lead who would be good in it. I was thinking Cruise would actually make a good Smith. Maybe we can swap the American and British leads? :)

    Agree Cruise would make a good Smith and would be interesting to swap the parts.

    I'm watching "Once upon a time in the west". Other than som bad dubbing and sound effects the movie is perfect, but if the movie was made 10-15 years ago I'd like to see this cast:

    Harmonica - Russel Crove

    Frank - Tom Hanks

    Chyenne - Javier Bardem

    Jill - Scarlett Johansson

    Morton - John Goodman
