News video: Russell Crowe Explains Why He Turned Down Wolverine Role

In the seventeen years since taking on the role, Hugh Jackman has captivated audiences in his portrayal of Logan Howlett, A.K.A. Wolverine.

But for a period of time, another Australian A-Lister almost took the role.

While cohosting the Australian radio show Fitzy & Wippa, Russell Crowe explained why he turned down the role of Wolverine in 2000's X-Men.

Crowe's character in the film, Maximus, was associated with wolf imagery - something that the actor believed would feel redundant if he took on the role of Wolverine.

So I said no because I didn’t want to be ‘wolfy’, like ‘Mr. Wolf’.".
