Hugh Jackman Tells Why He Turned Down The Chance To Play James Bond
December 7, 2017
In a candid interview with Variety, Hugh Jackman opened up about his acting choices including why he chose to say no to playing James Bond when he was offered the part.
The 49-year-old Australian actor gained worldwide fame when he played the role of the mutant Wolverine in the movie X-Men (2000). He was part of the main cast for the prequels, sequels, and spinoffs that arose from the film.
He is also known for his role in Les Misérables (2012) which earned him an Academy Award nomination.
While his mainstream Hollywood career continued to thrive, Jackman did not forget his stage roots. In 2004, he was honoured with a Tony Award for his performance in Broadway's The Boy from Oz.
