Australian actor Hugh Jackman, most famous perhaps for his role in X-Men as Wolverine, has confirmed on the Austrlian TV show 'Today' that he would be more than happy to play James Bond once Pierce Brosnan retires from the series.
When asked about rumours he'd be the next Bond Jackman said, "What guy wouldn't want to be James Bond". And he's right. Who wouldn't want to be?
Sad news for Jackman though. Pierce Brosnan confirmed at the recent Bond 20 Conference that he's more than happy to stay on as Bond for at least one more film as a minimum.
Thanks to Clint from Moviehole for the news!
