Genesis 9:18–27 narrates how Ham is said to have seen his father naked and told his brothers; as a result, Noah directed a curse at Ham’s son. The book includes two facts: (1) Noah was drunk when he "uncovered himself within his tent" and (2) Ham "saw his father’s nakedness." As Wikipedia goes on to explain, ‘these passages revolve around sexuality and the exposure of genitalia as compared with other Hebrew bible texts…’
Anyone else shuddering at the prospect of Mr Crowe uncovering Little Russell?
Crowe has plenty of gravitas and whoever Noah's nemesis is, he is going to need a good old fashioned dose of machismo to stand the comparison. Winstone can certainly provide that - from his work in The Departed to Nil By Mouth to 44 Inch Chest and Sexy Beast, he has demonstrated time and again that he brings presence and heft to his roles. Given Aronofsky's track record, Noah is likely to be awards bait and, as such, this immediately becomes one of Big Ray's biggest roles if it's true.
