Russel Crowe - good guy

Last month, a Jewish school in Montreal, Canada was firebombed. From the Calgary Sun comes this story: bq. Actor Russell Crowe was among the dozens of callers from around the world offering moral support to a Jewish school firebombed earlier this month. The film star phoned the principal of United Talmud Torahs' elementary school. Crowe reportedly also pledged money to help rebuild the school's library, which was destroyed by a firebomb April 5. bq. Estimates peg replacement costs for the books at $300,000. A note left at the school said the fire was in retaliation for Israel's killing of Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. Very cool!
