X-Man Doesn't Mark the Spot for Oscars: Hugh Jackman Won't Rehost

X-Man Doesn't Mark the Spot for Oscars: Hugh Jackman Won't Rehost
by Gina Serpe

Hugh Jackman would like to thank the Academy, but no thanks.

Despite his critically (the gig garnered several Emmy nominations) and publicly (he breathed new life and viewers into the ratings sinkhole) acclaimed Oscars hosting stint last spring, the Aussie actor will not be returning to the podium for the 2010 telecast.

Jackman's quiet exit doesn't mean he won't one day become this generation's Billy Crystal. His rep confirmed to E! News that he has not ruled out a return to the Oscar stage, but just didn't want to emcee for two consecutive years.

Fair enough. After all, how are we supposed to realize how good this is until we spend a year without it?

No frontrunner has emerged to fill Jackman's sizable song-and-dance shoes, but with one obvious fill-in, Ricky Gervais, suddenly bringing new buzz to the Golden Globes, the Academy better bring out the big guns.

So…Stephen Colbert, Neil Patrick Harris, Conan O'Brien, Chris Rock, Ellen DeGeneres, uh, Robert Pattinson…who would you like to see host the 82nd Annual Academy Awards when they return March 7?

And That's How They Became the Deadpool Bunch

Now, thanks to these pics from The Beat, I can: the Marvel universe will welcome not just Lady Deadpool, but The Deadpool Corps., which seems to include Deadpool, Lady Deadpool, a Kid Deadpool, and either a dog or cat Deadpool (it's hard for me to tell).

Hugh Jackman considering Real Steel

Hugh Jackman considering Real Steel
Shared via AddThis
Written by James White

He's negotiating the lead in the robo-boxing drama.

Hugh Jackman might be be busy on Broadway right now, but he's still considering film roles - and he's looking to star in DreamWorks Real Steel.

The drama, which just nabbed Shawn Levy as a director after Peter Berg moved on, focuses on a former fighter living in a world where boxing has been outlawed as too violent, except for gladiatorial robots.

Jackman's former fist-slinger becomes a down-on-his-luck promoter whose droids tend to lose because they have sub-standard parts. But then he discovers a machine that never loses, and, as he follows its progress, he also gets a chance to bond with the son he just discovered.

It's based on a Richard Matheson short story, and has cropped up in the past as a Twilight Zone story, though we figure with DreamWorks' resources behind him, Levy's effort will be a little more effects heavy.

The studio wants the film shooting before next summer...

X-Men First Class Possibly Starting In 2010 |

X-Men First Class Possibly Starting In 2010 |
Written by Costa Koutsoutis (Source: Electrix)
Shared via AddThis

Electrix is reporting that Tim Pocock, who played a young Scott Summers/Cyclops in the summer smash “X-Men Origins: Wolverine�, spilled the beans that he’ll be reprising his eyebeam-wielding mutant role in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming planned “X-Men: First Class�.

Written by Josh Schwartz, the film will reportedly be loosely based on the 2006 comic of the same name, which told new stories about the young original X-Men, as well as retelling classic early “X-Men� stories.

Pocock recently Twittered that he is working on an Australian TV series up through February 2010 and then was going into “X-Men: First Class�. Backing this up is “Wolverine� producer Lauren Shuler Donner recently having hinted that a new “X-Men� or “Wolverine� movie would be starting production sometime in 2010.

Written by Josh Schwartz, the film will likely draw from elements of the Marvel comic book of the same name, launched in 2006.

Stay tuned to for more “X-Men� news.

EW exclusive! First look at Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman in the Broadway play 'A Steady Rain'

EW exclusive! First look at Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman in the Broadway play 'A Steady Rain'
Shared via AddThis
Written by Thom Geier

Wolverine and James Bond will soon be squaring off eight times a week. And here’s the first publicity photo of Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig in the Broadway play A Steady Rain, in which they play Chicago cops with enough troubles to fill Soldier Field. Jackman, who won a Tony in 2004 for hoofing it as 1970s singer-songwriter Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz, plays Denny, a patrolman with a racist streak and violent temper. And Craig, a London stage veteran making his Broadway debut, plays Joey, a recovering alcoholic and gentler soul who may not be as docile as he first seems. In A Steady Rain, which just began rehearsals, the two buddies in blue recount a few harrowing days on the job and their very different accounts of a police call that quickly went south.

Performances of American playwright Keith Huff’s two-man play begin Sept. 10 with an official opening set for Sept. 29. The show, directed by Tony nominee John Crowley (The Pillowman), is scheduled to run through Dec. 6. And while I have my reservations about Craig’s porn-stache — a look that 007 could never get away with, thank heavens — I have to say that both stars look rugged, handsome, and intense. They can walk my beat any day.

Writer gets claws into Wolverine sequel

Written by: David Bentley.

ONLY the other day, X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Hugh Jackman confirmed there would be a sequel and that it would be set in Japan.

The follow-up is obviously being fast-tracked as a writer for the project has now been announced.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Christopher McQuarrie has signed on to pen the screenplay.

Jackman is also producing along with Lauren Shuler Donner.

The movie's storyline will follow the early 1980s Chris Claremont/Frank Miller miniseries, which sees Wolverine learning the ways of the samurai. He battles a ninja clan called The Hand as he struggles with whether to follow his animal killer instincts or the samurai code of honor and respect.

The story was hinted at in one of the movie's post-credit scenes in which the character is sat in a bar in Japan.

McQuarrie, who won an Oscar for writing The Usual Suspects for Bryan Singer, had worked with Singer on the first X-Men film but asked for his name to be removed from the credits after David Hayter reshaped the script into the version that was used. McQuarrie also wrote the Nazi war thriller Valkyrie, directed by Singer.

The first Wolverine movie was penned by David Benioff (Troy, The Kite Runner) and Skip Woods (Hitman, Swordfish), who are obviously not returning, and directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition), whose return to the franchise is now also in doubt.

Oddly, there has been no news yet of any movement on other X-Men projects such as X-Men: First Class, X-Men Origins: Magneto or a Deadpool spin-off, all of which seem to be more anticipated by fans than another Wolverine adventure.

Ryan Reynolds, who played Wade Wilson - the mercenary who becomes Deadpool - in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, recently signed to play Green Lantern for Warner Bros but indicated he was still keen to appear in the Deadpool spin-off too. It's unclear whether Reynolds' move to Warner Bros has impacted on Fox's plans for Deadpool.

For fans, the real shame is that the X-Men series seems to unfold in such an ad-hoc fashion, with no overarching strategy in mind.

Could Sabretooth Return for Wolverine 2?

Could Sabretooth Return for Wolverine 2? |
Shared via AddThis

The ending of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" left the door open for Sabretooth to return in the upcoming sequel, but since the story will take place in Japan, that may complicate a cameo from the character.

MTV News went straight to Liev Schreiber to find out if there is a plan for him to reprise his role. "There's been some smatterings of conversation about it, but nothing concrete yet," he said. "Hugh [Jackman] mentioned that he had some conversations about it, but no one's told me about it yet."

Schreiber added that if Jackman wants him to do the second movie, he will be more than happy to. "I had a ball doing it, so I'd do it again," he said.

One reason why Schreiber wants to continue exploring Sabretooth is because he wants to see how his take on the character eventually becomes the more primitive, animalistic version from the 2000 "X-Men" film, played by Tyler Mane.

"I'd love to find out what happened to Victor," he said. "I'd like to find out how my Victor became Tyler Mane's Victor."

Logan Vs. Omega Red In 'Wolverine' Sequel? That's The Match-Up Fans Want To See Most!

Written by: Rick Marshall

With all of last week's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" sequel news, we asked readers who they'd most like to see in the follow-up to this year's solo debut for Hugh Jackman and his Marvel Comics character.

After all the ballots were counted, the top two characters were separated by less than a dozen votes, and both of them seem more than up to the task of taking on Wolverine when he heads to Japan—or anywhere else, for that matter. Here's how the poll broke down, and why the votes went the way they did, according to readers:

Tentacled Russian villain Omega Red won the poll with 33 percent of the total votes, but recurring Wolverine foe Silver Samurai was close behind with 32 percent of the final tally. With Wolverine originally making his debut in a brawl with the Hulk, Marvel's Green Goliath also managed a respectable number of votes, and smashed his way to 18 percent of the total.

Neither Sabretooth, Cyber nor the combined efforts of the deadly ninja cult The Hand managed to generate more than 5 percent of the total votes, and X-Men foe Magneto barely factored into the poll at all. Take that, Master of Magnetism!

This week's responses in the "Other" category also proved fertile ground for some interesting responses, with a few votes for his son in the comics, Daken, as well as X-Men villains Mr. Sinister and Apocalypse.

As always, readers offered a wealth of input about why they voted the way they did. Here are some of the interesting responses I received via the comment section and Twitter:

- Anoobis: Although I like Omega red more then Silver Samurai, I chose Silver Samurai cause Omega Red is russian, it just woulnd't make sense for him to be in Japan without altering his origins completly.

- Toast-Jammer: How about Wendigo? I think the Hand would be decent in the next movie, and I could see an argument being made that Sabertooth should always show up in a Wolverine movie, but I don't know who the big bad should be next time around. Hulk would be fun, but for my money... WEN-DI-GO! .... I doubt that they'll do Omega Red, since they've got Whiplash in the new Iron Man movie. Russian dude with whips? It's been done.

- @chandlerfan: which villain would i like to see in wolverine 2.i would love to see cyber.they have an interesting history

- john@themovies: I voted for Omega Red, who's a true patriot. With his adamanium tentacles up against Wolverine. WAUW! But I also find that the Silver Samurai would play a big role in the movie. Because Wolverine learns the meaning of honor in Japan. It's a whole different world for him. In that world, the Silver Samurai thinks he's a man of honor. In the wrongs he does, he thinks the honor justifice the goals, or something like that. And last but not least, I would like to see Sun Fire, the Japanese hero. I heard that Jackie Chan would like to get a role in a Marvel movie, LOL Sun Fire would do great. Think about it. When Wolverine 2 comes out, Captain America will already been on the screen. Sun Fire is like the national Japanees hero, sort of. Lady Deathstryke? Didn't she died in X-2? They would have to resurrect her in a believable way... Me, I'm for Omega Red, Silver Samurai and Sun Fire. Well, we'll see...

So, there you have it! Keep it locked to Splash Page tomorrow for the next weekly poll!

Just for giggles

Many familiar faces singing 'The Ballad of G.I. Joe', among them Vinnie Jones as Destro.

Jackman gets his claws into "Wolverine 2"


We all knew it was coming. The only thing left to do was for Hugh Jackman to put the doubters out of their combined misery. Yes, "Wolverine 2" is on its way and, apparently, there‘s nothing we can do about it! The hirsute star, in an exclusive chat with MTV, was practically gushing about shooting the "X–Men Origins" sequel in Japan.

"Japan is where we‘re heading, [and] we‘re starting to work on it now. We‘re in the first steps of developing that story," Jackman said. "I think the fans love that saga. It‘s my favourite saga of the Wolverine stories."

Said saga is based on Frank Miller and Chris Claremont‘s story arc with Wolvie slowly piecing together his identity and kicking some serious Weapon–X tail.

Bryan Singer to direct "Battlestar Galactica"

Written by: Mike Fleming.

Universal Pictures has set Bryan Singer to direct and produce a feature version of "Battlestar Galactica," confirming a report on the Hitfix website.

The development is something of a surprise because the most prevailing rumor had Singer flirting with the idea of returning to the X-Men series by taking the reins of "X-Men: First Class," which focuses on the younger mutant characters seen fleetingly at the Xavier Institute of Higher Learning. "Gossip Girl" creator Josh Schwartz wrote the first draft of that script.

"Battlestar Galactica" appears to be on a fast track and sources said that Singer could be looking at a $10 million paycheck to sign on to the film.

Singer has long been intrigued with "Battlestar Galactica" and flirted with relaunching it into a TV series right after he directed the original "X-Men." Back in 2001 I wrote about his plan, which involved teaming with Tom DeSanto to exec produce the series. Singer planned to direct the pilot of the new version of a series that originally launched on ABC in 1978 and ran two seasons. Here is what he said at the time, comments that certainly proved prescient:

"The lesson I learned on `X-Men' is to have a healthy respect for the fan base of sci-fi fantasy franchises, and I'm confident that the `Galactica' brand is a sleeping giant. It was a show I watched during its initial run, from the pilot to the final episode. The essence and the brand name is quite potent in a climate where there's a great deficit of scifi programming."

It is possible that the timing of the series went awry because of the World Trade Center disaster that occurred later that year. Certainly, it made a series that launched with the attack and destruction of earth unpalatable.

The director got busy on other projects. Ronald Moore came on as executive producer and oversaw the 73-episode series relaunch, which had a critically acclaimed run on Syfy.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Moore would be invited to write the screenplay, but it is clear that Singer will put his own creative stamp on the project as the studio indicates that the film will be "a complete re-imagination."

Glen Larson is aboard to produce. Singer's repped by WME and attorney Dave Feldman.

Berry: 'Motherhood Makes Me Sexy'


Halle Berry has credited motherhood with helping her land the title of Sexiest Woman Alive.

The Oscar winner was handed the award by men's style magazine Esquire last year and was initially baffled by the honour.

But she's now convinced it is being a mother to 16-month-old Nahla that has made her more alluring to the opposite sex.

Berry says, "I think those things are kind of silly because nobody is the sexiest anything, so I asked them to let me write my own article to poke fun at the label.

"What I thought was interesting about them choosing me was that I had just had a baby, so it was all about saying that motherhood can be sexy - that was the important thing.

"I do feel sexier because I'm now more in line with my purpose for being on the planet. When you feel empowered, to me that's sexy."

Schreiber: 'Kids Keep Me Young'


Liev Schreiber loves his role as a father - and credits his kids with keeping him young.

The Defiance star and actress partner Naomi Watts have two sons, Sasha, who has just turned two, and seven month old Samuel.

And despite approaching his 42nd birthday later this year, Schreiber is feeling younger than ever - thanks to his young boys.

He tells, "I feel much older. I'm older physically, but spiritually much younger."

Danny Huston is joining the cast of Universal and Imagine's Robin Hood, which Ridley Scott is now directing in England, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Russell Crowe plays the legendary folk hero in the latest retelling of the Robin Hood myth written by Ethan Reiff & Cyrus Voris and Brian Helgeland. Imagine's Brian Grazer is producing along with Scott and Crowe.

Huston will step into the shoes of the historical figure King Richard, who became known as Richard the Lionheart because of his exploits in the Third Crusade.

Huston starred in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and has both Edge of Darkness and Clash of the Titans coming up.

Miley Cyrus And Hugh Jackman Team Up For Movie To Meet Every Single Demographic Known To Man


When Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner teamed up for “The Bodyguard” last decade, it was a massive hit among theatergoers. And now Miley Cyrus and Hugh Jackman are looking to try their hands at a new version of the story.
According to industry insiders, the “Hannah Montana” cutie and the People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive will collaborate on a movie musical called “Personal Security.”
In the film, Hugh will play a “tough New York police detective forced into bodyguard duty for a spoiled teen heiress who has received a kidnap threat.”
Adding legitimacy to the rumors, Cyrus and Jackman were recently spotted meeting up with movie executives at Morton’s Steakhouse in Los Angeles to discuss details.

Television: 'X-Men' star joins 'Bloodletting'

CANOE -- JAM! Television: 'X-Men' star joins 'Bloodletting'
Shared via AddThis

TORONTO - The "X-Men"'s Shawn Ashmore will star in the TV adaptation of the acclaimed book, "Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures."

Producers say Ashmore will portray Fitz, a troubled air-ambulance doctor with a lust for life and alcohol.

The eight-part, hour-long series follows the lives of three doctors as they navigate medical school, residency and their first years working in a busy Toronto hospital.

It's based on Vincent Lam's short story collection "Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures," which won the Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2006.

The series debuts on Movie Central and The Movie Network early next year.

Filming began June 29 and runs until Sept. 23, in and around Toronto and Hamilton.

Mayko Nguyen of "ReGenesis" plays Fitz's love interest, Ming, while Byron Mann of "Dark Angel" plays Ming's husband, Chen.

The 29-year-old Ashmore, from Richmond, B.C., played the frosty Bobby Drake on "X-Men" and Terry Fox in the made-for-TV movie, "Terry."

He also serves as an executive producer on "Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures."

Lam serves as a creative consultant on the series.

Hugh Jackman: Avon Lady?

Written by: Erik Davis

When you think of Hugh Jackman, you think tough, handsome, and rugged – the kind of guy you'd expect to play Wolverine in the X-Men films or an Australian cowboy in the film Australia. One role you probably never expected to see Hugh Jackman in is as an Avon salesman, which is a job that's usually held by women because, well, they're selling make-up and most men don't wear make-up. (Not that there's anything wrong with wearing make-up if you're a guy … but, um, okay, I'll just shut up now.)

Variety tells us that 20th Century Fox has acquired a comedy pitch from Kevin Bisch (Hitch) called Avon Man as a potential starring vehicle for Hugh Jackman. The film, which sort of sounds like America's version of The Full Monty, tells of a group of laid off men from a car dealership who venture into the Avon world in order to help their financially strapped families. Jackman would play the leader of the group; the guy who convinces everyone else to join in an attempt to win a regional contest.

Sounds like a fairly harmless comedy, and we all love watching a group of strong men getting in touch with their female sides for a change. What do you think of the idea, and who should join Jackman in the cast?

CraveOnline: Do they give you a place to start or do you have to wait to find out where you pick up?

Zak Penn: We are learning it as we go and it’s pretty complicated. I have a meeting at Marvel this week to catch up on continuity. There’s just a board that tracks “Here’s where everything that happens in this movie overlaps with that movie.” It’s just what they do in the comic books. Think how complicated it is when you’ve got all the titles those companies do. Someone’s got to keep track of all that. What’s Wolverine wearing this week? Are his claws bone or [adamantium]? Yeah, it’s going to be really difficult. The only thing I can say is I’m pushing them to do as many animatics as possible to animate the movie, to draw boards so that we’re all working off the same visual ideas. But the exigencies of production take first priority.

CraveOnline: Should Wolverine have been R?

Zak Penn: That was our frustration. He’s got razor sharp claws and you can’t show blood. So what does he do? In every scene, he’s running around blocking, hitting you with the claws and not cutting you. Where do you go with that? There’s no way to do it.

Empire chatted with Ryan Reynolds and asked him an interesting question about the upcoming "X-Men" spin-off, Deadpool, in which he'll reprise his role from the "Wolverine" movie.

Reynolds says Deadpool will breach the fourth wall: "Break the fourth wall? Oh yeah, he's got to. I want to see him break the Great Wall"... "The studio's working on a script and trying to find a director. The main goal is to make sure it stays close to the source material."

A release date has not yet been set for the film.

Paquin To Bare All On Screen As Vampire Prey


Fans of Oscar winner Anna Paquin are set to see a whole lot more of the former child star when she bares all as vampire prey in the second season of her hit TV show True Blood.

The actress, who was just 13 in 1994 when she claimed a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Piano, admits she's getting more adventurous as waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the hit series - and she's planning to strip for the cameras and her real-life boyfriend, co-star Stephen Moyer.

She tells, "I get more naked this season than I did last season... It's not an issue for me."

But she wanted to make sure she looked trim and toned for the risque scenes: "I'm very careful about what I eat, and I work out a lot. My costume entails bathing suits, short-shorts and nude scenes.

"I don't want to be perpetuating the myth that women actually do look exactly like the way they look in magazines and on television through absolutely no effort!"

Ray Park Also Joins "Heroes"


We just reported that Robert Knepper, Theordore "T-Bag" Bagwell on Fox's "Prison Break," has signed on as the lead villain on NBC's "Heroes" next season, and now we have some more "Heroes" casting news.

According to Entertainment Weekly, British actor Ray Park (Darth Maul in "Star Wars: Episode I," Toad in "X-Men," Snake Eyes in "GI Joe") and Deanne Bray ("The L Word") are now both in negotiations to join the show in multiple episodes.

Little is known about Park's role, except that he would be playing one of the colorful characters at the center of the show's Carnivale-esque storyline. Bray, meanwhile, would play a deaf love interest for one of the main Heroes.

Hamlet Filming Underway

Written by: Christian Cawley

He's not quite post-Who as yet - there's more than likely a lot of publicity to come in the backend of 2010 - but David Tennant is certainly moving in with his career. Although he is doing it by popping back to Hamlet.

David Tennant as HamletIt seems that recording of the recent RSC production is underway, something that will likely utilise either an already built set for another production of the play or a stripped down set with the focus on the actors performance.

David Tennant, Patrick Stewart and almost all of the original principal cast are involved at the semi-secret location which is being recorded for posterity and will more than likely quickly appear in the classrooms of GCSE pupils across the country within the next few years as a means of bypassing the stuffy costumes and ornate language of Shakespeare and showing the Bard's work as performed by one of the most famous actors in the country.

It's a genius idea - one that is likely to result in one of the highest selling educational DVDs of all time.

Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins Sign Up for John Carter from Mars
Now that we know they're filming in Utah, it seems Pixar has found its two main actors for their upcoming film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins have both landed the lead roles in John Carter of Mars.

Kitsch will portray the title character, a Civil War veteran who somehow gets transported to Mars and finds himself between a war on the dying planet and Collins will portray Dejah Thoris, the heir to the throne of Mars' Hellium Kingdom.

Both Kitsch and Collins were seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine last. Andrew Stanton is directing for Pixar, from a script he wrote with Mark Andrews. We reported earlier today that the film would go into production this November in Utah.

Foxx: 'Berry Kiss Was A Joke'


Jamie Foxx has brushed off critics of his impromptu kiss with Halle Berry at a recent U.S. awards ceremony - insisting their lip lock was a prank conjured up by the actress.

Foxx presented the sexy star with the Hottest Girl On the Planet award at Spike TV's 2nd Annual Guy's Choice Awards in Los Angeles last month, and they shocked the audience with a passionate on stage embrace.

The actor/singer is still mesmerised by their steamy session, but insists he didn't step out of line by kissing the star - who shares a 15-month-old daughter, Nahla, with partner Gabriel Aubry.

Foxx explains, "It was a joke. First, I want to let everybody know that I respect Halle Berry and I respect her relationship. But after she won the (2001) Oscar, Adrien Brody came up and laid a little tongue on her. So she decided to get me back, which I didn't mind at all."

And the Ray star admits he was so nervous before pulling Berry's prank, he nearly backed out at the last second.

He adds, "I almost froze but I said, 'Think quick Foxx,' and I got into it... she really gave it to me and I appreciate that."

Stewart Praises Star Trek Movie


Former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Patrick Stewart has praised director Jj Abrams for successfully resurrecting the franchise - insisting he "loved" the new movie.

Abrams brought the sci-fi franchise back to cinemas this year with Star Trek, a prequel to the original 1960s TV show, featuring a new cast of young actors.

Stewart played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series for seven years and brought his character to the big screen in four spin-off films, including 2002's Star Trek Nemesis.

And the British star insists he is delighted the original show has been resurrected once again and is full of praise for Chris Pine, who portrays a young Captain James T. Kirk in the new movie.

He says, "He's brilliant, charming, funny and utterly delightful."

And Stewart is adamant he is not bitter about movie bosses' decision to leave him out of the new movie, adding, "I loved it. It was a very odd experience to be in the cinema watching a Star Trek movie that I wasn't in. With the exception of Leonard Nimoy, I didn't know any of the cast but it's still Star Trek. I got a great kick out of it."

Hip-hop star modelled Wolverine role on cousin

Written by: David Bentley

WHEN, frontman of hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas, was cast in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, there was a lot of negative response on fan forums.

But it's far from the first time a rapper has made the switch from music to movies and I thought the 34-year-old (born William James Adams) performed brilliantly in his big-screen debut.

He played the teleporting mutant John Wraith, a character from the X-Men comic books who is sometimes known by the codename Kestrel. has spoken of how he enjoyed the "unbelievable" experience on the X-Men prequel and said working with director Gavin Hood was "incredible".

Speaking of the opportunity to launch his film career in such a major movie, he told Leader Newspapers in a recent interview: "It's more than spectacular. It's unbelievable, and kind of crazy, if you ask me."

He revealed a relative had provided the basis for his portrayal of John Wraith: "I modelled him on my cousin, Earl. He used to be a very, very bad, bad man. He's done some bad, bad things, but he's also a very approachable, likeable, huggable kind of guy. He has some bad friends who've done bad things, too, but he has a conscience.
