Russell Crowe Wolverine

It’s a well-known piece of trivia that Dougray Scott was initially cast to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men, but the actor ended up having to back out of the production due to scheduling conflicts with Mission: Impossible 2. An unknown actor named Hugh Jackman famously stepped in to take the role and played the character for the next seventeen years, culminating with an epic send-off in this year’s Logan.

But did you know that fellow Aussie Russell Crowe was actually Singer’s first choice to play the part? In a recent interview, Crowe finally revealed the odd reason he turned down the part. Brace yourselves: I’m fairly confident you won’t guess his reasoning. Read why we didn’t see a Russell Crowe Wolverine below.

The Gifted

As the X-Men movie franchise becomes more bombastic and unwieldy, Bryan Singer turns to the ordinary mutant’s story — well, as ordinary as you can get with a story’s premise being “kids get life-endangering powers” — with a new TV series on Fox. The Gifted indeed looks like a Singer take on Heroes: a buttoned-up family man, misunderstood teens, and an underground cabal of powered people. I wouldn’t be surprised if the main blonde teen girl (Natalie Alyn Lind‘s Lauren Strucker) turned out to be a cheerleader.

The new trailer for The Gifted lays out all these things, but is it actually an intriguing show? That remains to be seen. But Amy Acker is in it, so they have that going for them at least.
