Hugh Jackman was once on a very short list of actors to play James Bond, but turned down the role that eventually went to Daniel Craig. The actor, who's currently starring in box-office champ 'Real Steel,' is now explaining why he rejected the role of a lifetime: "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," he tells the British Press Association. Although Craig is committed to two more films as 007, Jackman says he'd be open to the part if he were asked again.
