Hugh Jackman was almost the special agent 007.
The actor from Australia shared that he could have been in his latest interview. The actor was sought as the replacement of Pierce Brosnan. According to him, the scripts were too unbelievable at that time.
Hugh was about to work on X-Men 2 when he was called and asked if he wanted to play in Bond. Jackman was sure that the scripts had to become real and grittier.
According to the star, he also worried that between X-Men and Bondhe would never have time to different things.
The role went to Daniel Craig from the U,K. He played the world-famous spy 9 years ago in Casino Royale. He went on performing James Bond in 2008’s Quantum of Solace, 2012’s Skyfall and 2015’s Spectre.
