While the Bond franchise doesn't exactly have the best track record with Australians (R.I.P George Lazenby's career), things might have been so different if Hugh Jackman had chose to accept the offer to audition for the iconic black dinner jacket. The 49-year-old actor reveals that he turned down the chance to play the iconic MI6 spy early on in his career. HughJackman in a recent interview to Variety said that he was considered for the part after Pierce Brosnan's tenure, but felt the scripts were too "unbelievable". However, the actor felt the franchise wasn't gritty enough at the time and made a decision to opt out of portraying James Bond.
He further added how he did not get any choice at that time as he said, "And the response was: 'Oh, you don't get a say".
He also confirms that for him to take on an additional role that often came with a multi-movie deal such as his role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise, it probably would have meant he would not have had time for other roles.

Logan - his final portrayal as Wolverine after almost two decades with the character - is one of the most well-received superhero films of all time, and he's about to roll out The Greatest Showman, a massive spectacle about the life of P.T. Barnum.
