Bet on Russell Crowe to play Shane Warne next year
According to the best odds, Russel Crowe leads the list of potential “Shane Warnes”. The former Gladiator can change his shield and sword to cricket ball and bat with 2.00 odds, which are the lowest at 1xBet Sportsbook. There are two strong reasons to bet on Russell Crowe to play Shane Warne and here are them.
Primarily, Russell Crowe also relates to Australia. Yes, he was born in New Zealand but a 55-years-old actor has lived most of his life at the neighboring continent. As the majority associates the Oscar-winning film star with Australia, Crowe is comfortable with this too. Therefore, betting on Australian to play Australian sounds quite reasonable. But this is not the main reason to bet on Russell Crowe to play Shane Warne. The most important thing is that these two legends are close friends. The sportsman described Crowe as a cricket lover too, so the idea to hire Russel to play Warne seems completely brilliant.
Who else can play Shane Warne in the Netflix film?
Despite Russel Crowe seems to be a perfect candidate to play Shane Warne, he is not the only actor under consideration. Sam Worthington also has high chances to get the role, to say nothing about such a giant as Leonardo DiCaprio. Experts from gambling sites in Australia give good odds on both actors to join the movie cast.
The main reason why you can bet on Sam Worthington to play Shane Warne is his origin. The Avatar star is an Australian actor despite the fact that he was born in the UK. His hometown is Perth, where he grew up since he was 6 months. This gives him additional points in the race for the role in Shane and 8.00 odds at 1xBet Sportsbook.
Another popular actor who can play a lead role in a documentary about Shane is Leonardo DiCaprio. This well-known film star has 15.00 odds to receive the role of the famous cricket player. DiCaprio has all chances to become Shane Warne as he called Leonardo a “super cool” choice for this role. Well, we can’t agree more while imagining Leo in a cricket uniform.
