Hugh Jackman revealed during an interview with Variety that he got a call from an agent asking him if he’d be interested in taking on the role of James Bond back when he was about to do X-Men 2. Jackman said he didn’t even consider the role. “I just felt at the time that the scripts had become so unbelievable and crazy, and I felt like they needed to become grittier and real,” Jackman said. ” And the response was: ‘Oh, you don’t get a say.
