Hugh Jackman said the following about how he picked up the role in a recent interview, according to On The Red Carpet:
“On ‘X-Men,’ [Crowe] was Bryan Singer’s first choice for Wolverine, and he mentioned me also for ‘Australia. He really is incredibly smart, and generous. It was a joy to work with him. The whole cast it was a great sense of ensemble. We all had that feeling it was going to take everything.”
The role became Jackman’s breakout character, and it made the actor a known name in the film industry. Jackman worked with Russell Crowe in “Les Miserables.” That film is set for release to theaters in December.
