Default Russell Crowe Helped Hugh Jackman Get Wolverine Role

In an interview with Australian radio station, Hugh Jackman revealed that the role of Wolverine in X-MEN movie was first offered to Russell Crowe, who turned it down and recommended him.

"[Director] Bryan Singer asked [Crowe] to do Wolverine," Jackman explained. "And he said, 'Nah, I've just done GLADIATOR, it's not for me, but you should look at this guy...'"

Jackman ended up taking the job and returned to play Wolverine in two more X-MEN sequels, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, and X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. He is now shooting The WOLVERINE and will likely reprise the role in the upcoming FIRST CLASS sequel, called X-MEN: DAYS of FUTURE PAST.
