King Richard of 'Robin Hood' Found in 'Wolverine' Villain


Danny Huston


Danny Huston, the William Stryker of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', has been touted to star alongside Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott's in-production Robin Hood movie.

Moving on from his villainous role in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", Danny Huston will tackle on a historical figure in "Robin Hood". According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 47-year-old actor will step into the shoes of King Richard who is more commonly known as Richard the Lionheart due to his exploits during the Third Crusade.

Landing the role means he will be sharing screen with Academy Award-winning actor Russell Crowe, who headlines the project as the titular character. He will also join other cast ensemble that include Cate Blanchett as Maid Marion and Mark Strong as Sir Godfrey. The actor who is also credited as director is expected to shoot for his part after wrapping up on "Clash of the Titans".

Eying a May 14, 2010 U.S. release, "Robin Hood" is the working title given for the action adventure film which was once named "Nottingham". A first look at Russell Crowe's Robin Hood had been posted at USA Today back in April, exposing the new look of the hero. About it, producer Brian Grazer said, "He doesn't have the old Robin Hood tights. He's got armor. He's very medieval. He looks, if anything, more like he did in Gladiator than anything we're used to seeing with Robin Hood."

A former husband of actress Virginia Madsen, Danny Huston made his first on-screen appearance through the 1995's "Leaving Las Vegas". Since then, he had appeared in numerous feature films, including Fernando Meirelles' "The Constant Gardener" which brought him a Golden Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor. He was last seen starring as Wolverine's nemesis William Stryker in "X-Men Origins" and will be seen as Poseidon in "Clash of the Titans".
