Why Hugh Jackman Said No to Playing James Bond Ryan Scott
He has been immortalised onscreen as Wolverine, but there was a time Hugh Jackman was approached to play the iconic role of James Bond, which he turned down as he found the script of a potential film to be quite straitjacket.
"I was about to do X-Men 2 and a call came from my agent asking if I'd be interested in Bond", Jackman recalled.
Daniel Craig was ultimately offered the role and, well, it seems like they decided to make him gritty after all.
In a new interview withVariety, the 49-year-old actor revealed he just couldn't get on board with the "crazy" scripts. However, the actor felt the franchise wasn't gritty enough at the time and chose to opt out of portraying James Bond.
Avoiding being pigeonholed is part of the reason why Jackman has tried to make the move from playing Wolverine to other parts, including that of P.T. Barnum in his latest film.
People protested a blonde James Bond when Daniel Craig was cast, but imagine their reaction had the producers chosen an Australian - especially after the franchise's troubled history with Aussies.
