This really surprised me, I guess because I think of Hugh Jackman as the perfect Wolverine!

Ok, I like Russel Crowe, too... and since he passed the role of Wolverine on to Jackman, I guess I'll have to go see the two of them together in "Les Miserables"! LOL

LOL... I would have figured it for the exact opposite -- Jackman as the first choice and Crowe as the second! I like that Russel Crowe suggested Hugh for parts he passed on; it makes the idea of seeing them work together in Les Miserables more intriguing to me!

Jackman is the bomb!  I am so glad Crowe didn't get picked though I do like him too.
