Why did I even click the link?! Why?! I knew I was only going to get angry! And get angry I did...

Click here to see Russell Crowe whine about journalists and present a bastardised image of Cal McCaffrey to Andrew Marr on the BBC.

Ooh, this makes me mad. Seriously. Crowe reckons that in the beginning, Cal was only interested in creating a smokescreen for his friend and not at all bothered about truthful journalism. Really?! Is that how badly the original script has been butchered to fit it into a feature-length timeslot? Because the Cal I remember was only interested in presenting the truth, albeit sometimes for his own ends, and never tried to back away from the truth of the story that he was uncovering.

I was bewildered as to why they'd chosen to remake this in the first place, and even more so when I discovered they'd cast Crowe as McCaffery. But now, having listened to his self-righteous drone about how journalists are scum who deserve everything they have coming to them, how on earth could he be expected to sympathetically play a character that apparently embodies everything he despises?

I think I was just a little bit sick in my mouth.
