Could you ever imagine some other actor playing Wolverine other than Hugh Jackman? The definite answer is a big NO. Yes, the character has become synonym to the actor and vice versa. Forget the film series, the character in itself has a separate fan base.
For almost 17 years, Hugh Jackman nailed the fictional character. He never let down his fans and critics right with his performance from X-Men to Logan. He played Wolverine with such perfection that one can say that the role was made only for the 51-year-old actor.
But do you know, once Hugh said that there’s one actor who would make a great Wolverine? Don’t scratch your head and keep reading.
Back in 2015, Hugh Jackman was talking to MTV News where he was asked about a perfect replacement for Wolverine’s portrayal other than him. He quoted, “I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’m always like, ‘I don’t wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,’ you know?”
“He’s younger than me for sure. I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine,” added Hugh.
Although Tom Hardy definitely has some tremendous characters to boast of in the form Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and others, it’s highly impossible to imagine some other actor as Wolverine.
Recently, Hugh Jackman said he has got braver in being honest about his fears and insecurities with age. He opened up about it during a conversation with Anne Hathaway and while talking about his recent film, “Bad Education”, reports variety.com.
