Russell Crowe got Hugh Jackman Wolverine part

Nov 23 2012, 10:01am CST | by

Russell Crowe has admitted he suggested Hugh Jackman would be the perfect fit for the part of Wolverine in 'X-Men'.

Russell Crowe got Hugh Jackman the role of Wolverine.
The 'Noah' star was initially targeted to portray the 'X-Men' character, but when he turned down the film, he suggested producer Bryan Singer spoke to the 'Real Steel' star instead.
He explained to the Grill Team on Australian radio station Triple M 104.9FM: ''Bryan Singer asked Rusty to do Wolverine, and he said, 'Nah mate I've just done 'Gladiator', it's not for me but you should look at this guy...' ''
Hugh is a big fan of Russell, both personally and professionally, and says he has learned a lot from his friend.
He said: ''He's a great guy in every way, I have so much time for him and to watch him work, everyone says he is a great actor, when you actually get to work with someone like that... He's that good when it matters, in that moment, in that close up tough moment, you just sit back and watch you know someone's got that confidence and is going to deliver. I learnt a lot from him.''
Hugh will next appear in James Mangold's sixth instalment of the 'X-Men' franchise, 'The Wolverine', in July 2013.

WINTER’S TALE Blu-ray Review

Sep 2 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Collider

Quentin Tarantino has complained about how one of the biggest problems with American cinema is that it’s afraid of big emotions.  Of melodrama that might descend into camp (or perhaps is camp to begin with).  And it’s true, more movies are likely to adapt an ironic distance than go for something earnest.  There’s a reason for that: when earnest doesn’t work, you get films like The Postman and The Room.  But that means som ...
