Hugh Jackman To Daniel Craig: 'Retire So I Can Be Bond!'

hugh jackman daniel craig james bond movies film star role

While we think that Hugh Jackman could be an amazing Bond, we have to admit that we're not ready to see Daniel Craig step down quite yet!

Though, Hugh DOES have British parents and a British passport — despite having the Aussie accent. He has the credentials… but he had his chance. He was actually summoned for the role before Craig, but had to pass because he was off poppin' his claws as Wolverine!

Here's what he said:

“At the time it was wrong for me, but when I saw Daniel in the movie I thought maybe I should have been more interested, because it was great. But I am great mates with Daniel. When he was in Australia we caught up and, you know, no one could have played Bond better.”

So that's it? Giving up hope? NO!

“I will just wait. The good thing about Daniel is he’s, what, 62 now, isn’t he? He’s falling apart at the seams. So I just keep telling him, ‘I’m ready, whenever you want to let him go, I’m ready’. The good thing is I have also got a British passport.”

LOLz!! They're actually the same age!

Is there any way we could get Hugh Jackman an award for being the most charmingly friendly man in Hollywood?? He ALWAYS has a smile on his face… plus he can sing! Now he's taking delightful jabs at Daniel Craig!

    I think Clive Owen would make a fantastic James Bond.

    Hot damn….. I love Daniel Craig though…..but Hugh Jackman too….I think this needs to be settled by both having sex with me.

    But they don't want him as Bond ! A few years ago, a 'secret' list of potential Bonds was leaked. Various actors names were listed, with the reason WHY they would not work. Collin Farrell, for example, was noted as being 'too sleazy' (right after his sex tape was released). Hugh Jackman was listed as 'too fey'. This is a British term meaning he comes off to gay and fruity. Sorry, Hugh, yer rep. precedes you ! Google this list - you will laugh !

    I like Hugh Jackman but there would be uproar if he was Bond. People got angry enough when they first hired Daniel Craig, just because he's blonde not brown haired. If they picked an Australian people would go crazy!

    Re: Be-Atch – Next year Mr.JACKMAN probably will be nominated to the Oscars and there are good chances he will win, as insiders and professional critics have predicted for him. He will have better things to do than groped to resurrect a character who has nothing more to say, although surely he would be a perfect Bond.
    Back to masturbate watching sexy pics of Perez Hilton, poor inhuman excrement…

    Re: Be-Atch – You're badly informed, stop reading pointless gossip, that 'secret list' is an old fake. Barbara Broccoli, executive producer of the Bond franchise, is a good friend of Jackman, she produced A Steady Rain the dramatic theater piece played by him with Daniel Craig in 2009. Broccoli, personally proposed to Jackman the role of Bond and he refused because he was already involved with the X-Men. Nothing else.

    Re: Be-Atch – You are extremely stupid :

    Fey :
    A word meaning "wild or crazy acting", often ascribed to supernatural causes and evidenced by abnormal behavior (cognate to Old Norse feigr, German feige). In Scottish superstition, supernatural abilities such as prophecy (not necessarily related to dying or death).

    I love Hugh Jackman, cannot wait to see Les Mis! He's hilarious.

    As for Bond, Daniel C. is great, so would Hugh J. be. It's all good.

    I say Tom Hardy should be the new Bond…

    NOOO!! TOM HARDY!

    MICHAEL FASSBENDER FOR BOND FOR FUCKS SAKE! How blind can you people be? Ever see him in the X-men movie? He fucking is BOND

    I may be the only one….but I NEVER liked Daniel Craig as James Bond. James Bond is supposed to be a good looking man and I think Daniel Craig is ….sorry…fugly….he has the body and the acting skills but it stops there. Now Hugh Jackman as Bond…oh yeah I can get on board with that one, body, looks, and acting chops. Please let this one happen.

    I stand by my post 100% - they did not want him. And, please, google 'FEY' - you will see it has several meanings, including 'gay', fairy, etc….again, it is more of a Briitish slang term. So…who is stupid now ? LOL ! Anyways…why get so upset re JackOff not being qualified to play Bond? Now. let us all be nice, and go back to picking on that HoHan broad ….

    Daniel has done a FANTASTIC job at reviving the franchise.
    And SKYFALL has made CRAZY money, so I don't see Daniel leaving the franchise any time soon.
    .
    But Hugh is a funny guy and I think he would be a good Bond, but more like Roger Moore than Connery.
