“It’s big,” he enthused with a grin. “Huge!” Curtis’ role is a familiar one to fans of sprawling epics. “I’m sort of like a Gandolf type, sort of [an] Obi-Wan Kenobi figure. I’m the mentor. But without any sort of magical powers.”
Forget magical powers, everyone who’s ever seen “Star Wars” or “The Lord of the Rings” knows that mentors aren’t judged by the weight of their wands, but by the length of their beards. The star of movies like “Blow” and “Three Kings,” Curtis nearly jumped when asked if his will measure up. “I have long hair and a beard,” Curtis exclaimed. “And a big stick!”
“10000 B.C.” is slated to open on March 7, 2008.
