Russell Crowe: Jacko Used to Prank Me

According to this story out of New Zealand, tough-guy actor Russell Crowe says in an interview that the late pop singer Michael Jackson used to call him up and pretend to “be in trouble” as a prank.

Crowe says after he rose to stardom in L.A. Confidential, he met and befriended Jackson and found they had a similar sense of humor. So they would occasionally crank call each other.

No, that’s not big news, but it’s amusing. And it gives us the opportunity to use the nickname “Jacko,” which we like so much.

The link to the New Zealand story has been up and down today, but you can read the same story by way of The A.V. Club.
