VIDEO: See Hugh Jackman's Original 'Wolverine' Audition For X-MEN
An eleven minute video featuring a fresh-faced Hugh Jackman auditioning for the role of Wolverine in Bryan Singer's first X-Men movie has been unearthed. It's well worth a watch, even if it's just to hear some of the dialogue that didn't make the final cut. Some of it is pretty dark!
Adapted from the most popular Marvel comics of the 1990s, The X-Men are a group of genetic mutants with amazing abilities, brought together and trained by the world's most powerful telepath, Professor Charles Xavier to help fight for his dream - a world where the mutant minority and human majority can live together in harmony - to be judged not by the fancy powers they possess, but by the content of their character. However, the Mutant Master of Magnetism, Magneto, scarred by the human brutality he's experienced, has come to believe the mutant race is superior to humanity, and should rule over them as their betters, and he's amassed a brotherhood of like-minded mutants to help achieve his goals by any means necessary. With anti-mutant sentiment prevailing at every turn, the X-Men strive to protect the very humans that fear and hate them.
You can see a much bigger Hugh Jackman reprise the role of Wolverine for the seventh time in the excellent X-Men: Days Of Future Past in theaters now.
