Kevin Durand in talks for ‘Noah’ cast

Thesp to co-star with Russell Crowe in pic

The 6’6 Kevin Durand is putting his size to good use as he is in talks to play a watcher in Paramount and New Regency’s “Noah” starring Russell Crowe.

Pic also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth with Darren Aronofsky directing.

In Aronofsky’s take on the Biblical tale, Noah is a man who loves Earth and all of its animal inhabitants, but has become disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet. Durand plays one of the giants who helps Noah and his family.

Pic is scheduled to bow March 28, 2014. Paramount had no comment on the casting.

Durand has cut his teeth over the years in smaller, character driven roles but as of late has come into his own and stayed very busy.

In recent weeks, Durand has lined up roles in the West Memphis 3 pic “Devil’s Knot” and the Screen Gems pic “The Mortal Instruments.” Durand also still has a handful of films set to come out this year with David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” and Screen Gems” Resident Evil: Retribution” set to bow this fall.

He is repped by WME, Alchemy Entertainment and attorney David Feldman.
