Hugh Jackman has 007 ambitions

18 October 2011

It would seem that Ashley Greene isn't the only sought after talent that has Bond ambitions, but where she's after a Bond girl role, X-Men legend Hugh Jackman wants to be Bond himself.

Apparently Jackman had a chance to be the British secret agent with a license to kill once before, when Casino Royale was looking for its lead actor but turned the role down.

Speaking to the Press Association Jackman said “I got a call from my agent saying, 'There is some possible interest in you for Bond, are you interested?' At the time I wasn't. I was about to shoot X-Men 2 and Wolverine had become this thing in my life and I didn't want to be doing two such iconic characters at once, I think every male at some point thinks about playing James Bond so it was not right then, but it may be right if it comes back."

Jackman can currently be seen as Charlie Kenton in the box office smash Real Steel from director Shawn Levy and he'll soon be gearing up to play Jean Valjean in Tom Hooper's Les Misérables.
