Way back in November 2010, my gorgeous wife noticed that Hugh Jackman looks a lot like a young Clint Eastwood.
Today Hugh Jackman said he noticed that too in an interview with Geoff Boucher of the LA Times.
GB: How much you weighing?
HJ: Right now, I’m at 210.
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?
