Hollywood star Russell Crowe will be watching Norwich City’s upcoming clash with Leeds this weekend - so long as he can find a pub showing the game.
The 54-year-old - famed for his roles in Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind - asked on Twitter if there was a bar or pub screening the match.
On Saturday, February 2, The Canaries be travelling to Elland Road to take on Leeds United, who currently sit three points ahead at the top of the EFL Championship.
In a tweet, Mr Crowe said: “Hey English football fans in NY/LI is the Leeds v Norwich game on tv? What channel? Is there a pub or bar that you know of that will screen the game?”
The Oscar-winning actor has previously revealed he is a Leeds fan, despite being born in New Zealand.
In an interview in 2017 he said: “When I was a kid in Sydney, after playing sport on a Saturday morning, there was Match Of The Day on TV.
“In the early 1970s Leeds was a dominant team and they were featured every other week [this was when MOTD was literally one match from that day, not a collective highlights reel]; So I chose Leeds as my team.”
In response to Mr Crowe’s Twitter post, the official Norwich City FC account said: “Give @RealHughJackman a shout, Russell. He may be able to recommend somewhere!”
Australian-born Hollywood star Hugh Jackman is a Norwich City fan and has links to Norfolk through his mother who lived in the county.
