WOLVERINE

Recommended Posts

Apparently, Hugh has to finish this first. Australia

Anything Nicole Kidman does is now news in Nashville since she married Keith Urban and everything that revolves in his universe is important in Nashville. Anyway, sounds like it could be good as well.

The woman I'm seeing (or was seeing - she hasn't called in 3 days), just got back from the Country music awards that took place in Nashville over a week ago. I'm curious about Australia, but much more interested in "The List" (previously called "The Tourist") which he shot with Ewan "Obi-Wan" McGregor. I saw a clip of it and it looks good. Aside from the X-Men films, Hugh has some other impressive credits:

 

-The Fountain (2006), AMAZING!

-The Prestige (2006), Bale COULD NOT survive Hugh stealing the show

-Kate & Leopold (2001), a chick-flick the guys can enjoy too

 

Anyway, even though he's wrapping Australia he's already in the Wolverine mentality carrying the beard and doing stunt rehearsals with the crew for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I guess that's some kind of pre-pro right?

Casting news: Robert Knepper, a big TV actor (Prison Break) with movie roles in Hitman, Good Night and Good Luck, and Hostage - has signed on for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

 

Who will he play???

The guy's skinny, so unless they put him in the gym (they won't), he's a possible James Hudson aka the Guardian. I'm thinkin he might be a good Henry Howlett (Wolverine's adoptive father). He's also a possible Omega Red, though I think Brendan Cowell will play the Soviet killing machine.

 

All bets are off...

Awesome WOLVERINE update!!! Maggie Q (Live Free or Die Hard) might play The Silver Fox in the 2009 prequel.

 

Maggie is smokin HOT...

It looks like Wolverine will continue to surround himself with attractive women. I still think Famke is way hotter.

Among other things, I saw Hitman on Tuesday and Robert Knepper was great in it. I'm amazed the guy seems like a genuine Russian but is actually from Ohio.

 

Watch Hitman, Olyphant is on fire.

And now by popular demand, a recap of casting for X-Men Origins: Wolverine:

Aaron Jeffery as Dog Logan

Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young James Logan

Brendan Cowell as???

Robert Knepper as???

Alright, Prison Break fans of the Board: who should T-Bag play in this film?

 

-Gambit aka Remy LeBeau (my personal choice IF they put him in the movie)

-The Guardian aka James Hudson

-Henry Howlett (Wolverine's adoptive father)

 

*Special note: Aaron Jeffery kinda looks like Kevin Nash face-wise. I'm thinkin this is yet another reason why Big Kev should play the son of Dog Logan - a killer called Sabretooth.

Yeah, he's the man who Tom Clancy calls John Clark...

 

Enter Liev Schreiber:

He's both a great actor and director - Everything is Illuminated is one of my favorite films. I think he was great with Hugh in Kate & Leopold, but my top pic would be The Sum of All Fears.

He recently did an indie movie called "The Ten" with Famke Janssen, you guys oughtta check out. It'll be out on dvd January 15.

I'm actually really looking forward to this film. I'm not a fan of the X-Men comic books, nor a huge fan of the movies (they're decent), but Wolverine has always been the best part of both, and Jackman's performance in the films was spectacular. So I really have high hopes for this one and I'm quite excited about it. With that said, I only have one misgiving:

 

TL, I know you're excited, but seriously... stop posting the shots of bare-chested Jackman. He looks good, I know... but there's gotta be a line drawn somewhere. You see, when you posted the photos of Maggie Q, that was the right idea... God, that was the right idea. Jackman's an amazing dude, I really like him... I just... well, the bare chestedness is a bit much. Unless there was a delay between the posts (I don't read dates). But, nevertheless.

 

What's my point again?

 

Right, Wolverine kicks ass (Castle still comes first though), Jackman's cool, and Maggie's hot.

 

Why didn't I say that first?

The shots were posted to demonstrate Jackman's uncanny dedication to the role by making bodybuilding a part of his life. See, Jackman doesn't just work out for the X-Men films, he hits the gym 5 days a week - EVERY week. He eats right - EVERY day. He's been at it for 8 years, gaining a ridiculous amount of muscle and maturity (for an actor). Guys that don't hit the gym, may feel threatened or uncomfortable with the pics. For me, its all about witnessing his awesome commitment to the character he's playing for the 4th time. I don't see some bare-chested dude. I see maturity, definition, low body fat and volume. Exactly WHAT Wolverine should have and HOW Wolverine should be. I posted the first set of pics in October, and the second set in November. The film begins principal photography in three weeks, so there's no point in putting out any more training shots.

 

Let me close it off with this shot taken early this month...

Well, I'm not saying it's a slight against Jackman (I commend him for treating himself right). I don't feel threatened or uncomfortable either. More amused than anything. Today's the first day I read this thread, and I saw like 12 pictures of half-naked Jackman in a row. And well, you posted all of them. I'm just saying hey, maybe some half-naked Maggie Q, you know, more so to just balance the thread out, you know... but hey, just my opinion.

See, that's all I meant, you know, I mean, now we have a balance, and you know, I'm satisfied. That was all I asked for, mate.

Oddly, I think it must have been "Phantoms" that really drew me to him as an actor...and I don't remember liking the film. And Jay and Silent Bob were VERY wrong. BEN was NOT the bomb in Phantoms yo. :)

Haha I agree. I hate Ben Affleck in almost anything he has no talent that I can see. Just my own opinion.

I don't think it's a talent issue so much as he's miscast and choses bad scripts. I REALLY liked him in "Changing Lanes" and "Forces of Nature" and I think he was hilarious in the Smith films. He's no Daredevil though and I don't see him as a straight up action star (Paycheck, Reindeer Games, Phantoms).

 

I've heard his recent stuff is VERY good and I haven't had a chance to catch his directorial debut (heard good things).

I have to say that I think it's funny that there is a complaint about too many skin pics of Hugh, when none of the females on the board, myself included, have complained about ALL the scantily clad chick pics.

Whatever. It's an open forum as long as it's not porn.

Just an observation.

It's harassment. Guys aren't supposed to post half-naked pictures of dudes. However, being fitness oriented, TL is looking at it from a different angle. If a guy posts pictures of half-naked hot chicks it's considered...normal. :)
