Jackman Wants To Play Bond – ManlyMovie

Jackman Wants To Play Bond

hugh-jackmanIt’s all but confirmed that Daniel Craig is hanging up his tuxedo after this year’s Bond outing.  The question is, who is going to replace him?  Apparently the two favourites are Idris Elba or Henry Cavill, but another entrant now appears to be Hugh Jackman.

The actor recently appeared on The Project, an Australian news program, and the anchors asked whether he would be up for taking on the role of James Bond. ‘I’d seriously consider it,’ he responded.  Which pretty much sounds like a closet fanboy response or, ‘I’d do that shit for free!’.  But is he the right choice to play Bond?

The guy looks kinda old to me, to play Bond, especially if he’d be expected to play the role over 5+ years.  Also, Jackman does not come across as Bond material to me at any age.  They need a young unknown with a harder disposition if you ask me.  Jackman as Bond – ManlyMovie thumbs down!

    There are no Sean Connery’s left….what’s really disheartening is the fact that this veteran of musical theater(!) is not the worst possible choice they could make. Sooner him than Elba or Cavill.

      I’m actually fearing who they’ll cast as the next Bond.
      So here’s hoping Graig does 10 more!

    I think Graig has 1 more movie left on his contract after “Spectre”

    nah! give jackman a shot. they originally wanted him after he did x-men in 2003 and they went with Craig. he’s available now. my issue is, can he do an authentic english accent? i want to see him do it.
