Default Temeraire - the web game and movie gossip

I've just poked about Naomi Novik's website to see if anything had been updated, and found she had a link to a webgame that Harper Collins has posted for Temeraire.

Also, her LJ links to an article in the NY Times -- which I can't read as I don't have a web subscription, but I gathered from one of the congratulatory comments that Russel Crowe may have been cast as Lawrence in the movie. Anyone got a subscription so they could share the full article?

Oooh, Russel Crowe is a very good choice! He's already proven to preform excellently in that general area of history in Master and Commander. I pictured him as Jack Davenport, who plays Norrington in Pirates of the Caribbean. But I think I like Russel Crowe better

?? Surely there's more to it than making sure he keeps out of the way of the guns? I'll obviously have to go searching the web site or something, for more instructions

Hit the ctrl key to breath fire, take out the ships and dragons. Though considering that doesn't seem to earn you any points, I wonder how much longer I'd manage to live without bothering with that part.

There's arent a great many actors I do not care for, but unfortunately Russell Crowe is one of them. His looks just do NOT appeal!


GRR!

He does resembled Jack Aubrey, although he's a leetle thin for him.
