Not Maximus! 

I was wondering if the terrorists would try to pull off something like this: Apparently the FBI overheard terrorist chatter about kidnapping actor Russell Crowe.

In one of the more unlikely terrorist plots, the Oscar winner has revealed that he was a kidnap target for the network, and that the FBI was so concerned about his safety that it gave him protection for four years.

The FBI told him that terrorists had devised a "cultural destabilisation plan" that involved seizing high-profile actors.

OK, so al-Qaida has awareness to target something Americans are truly interested in: Hollywood movie actors. Of course Crowe, arguably best known for his role in the Oscar-winning movie Gladiator, was born in New Zealand and spend his childhood in Australia.

Life imitates art imitates life.

I saw this article the other day and I'm still not sure if Crowe is drunk, high, crazy, or telling the truth.
