Hugh Jackman Turned Down a Chance to Play James Bond


The Oscar-nominated actor's upcoming movie The Greatest Showman, which revolves around popular American showman PT Barnum and his journey, is slated for release in the USA theatres on December 20. "And I was calm and at peace, but I'm going to miss that guy". The main feeling I had was: "There, that's the character". And it seems that our home-bred Hugh Jackman piqued their interest, having just begun playing Wolverine in the 2000 hit X-Men. "I feel like I've done it now".

An actor with the hair and jawline to do Bond justice (the only things that are important), Jackman ultimately turned down the role because he felt like the films needed to be "grittier". Liam Neeson said he was also approached for the role before Brosnan took over, but he "wasn't really interested".

Hugh Jackman has revealed that he turned down the opportunity to become the second only Australian actor to play the iconic role of 007. Jackman, after seeing years of increasingly goofy Bond flicks, was hesitant. "I just felt at the time that the scripts had become so unbelievable and insane, and I felt like they needed to become grittier and real", says Jackman.

Jackman recalled his agent telling him he doesn't "get a say" in the scripts and "just have to sign on".
