GB: Wow, so you’re going to be bigger this time? Last time, you looked about, what, 190?
HJ: Yeah, right, I was 190, something like that. I don’t know how much I want to give away about it, but Darren said with the last one, ‘Hey you looked great, but you’re so tall that in those long shots you looked kind of like Clint Eastwood, and that’s not Wolverine.” He said that Wolverine, in the comics, is powerful, stocky, you know, he’s short and thick. So he said, ‘I want you to go there, get bigger.’ He’s going to come down after he gets done with all the black-tie events over and done with.
I said Hollywood needs to remake “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” with Hugh Jackman as the Man With No Name back in November. Any bets on how long it will take the studios catch on they’re sitting on a blockbuster with Jackman?
OK, I admit, this is nothing but a shameless plug for the recent Predators movie that I just got from Netflix.
I finally got around to seeing it (as part of my INSOMNIA THEATER movie club) and there’s this part near the end I laughed at…
I met my hot and gorgeous wife just like that!
OK, I didn’t have my AA-12 automatic 12 Gauge shotgun with me that night we met, though, and there were a few other things that were completely different, but it was mostly like that. Kinda. Sorta. Not really. And I don’t look anything like Adrien Brody. I think. Hey, the dialog was somewhat right!
So my gorgeous wife and I were enjoying being in our new home this weekend, and as we were flipping through the channels, we found the Clint Eastwood movie of all Clint Eastwood movies was on… “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly”.
As we were watching the big finale, my wife does a double take, grabs her laptop, looks up a few images in Google, and says “Hey! Hugh Jackman looks a lot like a young Clint Eastwood.”
I looked over at her laptop…
… and damn. He sure does.
Hey Hollywood! You’re so jazzed on remakes, how about remaking “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” with Hugh Jackman as the Man With No Name? I can totally see Hugh nailing this part. And there hasn’t been a good western out in a few years, so a big budget movie like this would probably pull in some major moolah.
And in case you haven’t seen the movie, here’s the big finale….
