Anthony Hopkins: Methuselah
Noah : You know why I've come?
Methuselah : Yes. Before he walked on, my father Enoch told me that one day, if man continued his ways, The Creator would annihilate this world.
Noah : So what I saw is true? All life blotted out because what man has done? Can it not be averted?
Methuselah : Noah, you must trust that He speaks in a way that you can understand. So you tell me. Can this destruction be averted?
Noah : No.
Methuselah : Oh.
Noah : He sent me here. Why send me if there's nothing I can do to stop it?
Methuselah : Well, perhaps He simply sends you here to share a cup of tea with an old man.
