You can’t imagine anyone playing Wolverine other than Hugh Jackman. However, the producer’s first choice for the role was Dougray Scott. Scott gathered a great deal of fame during the 90s. When filming for the X-Men began, Scott was involved in many other projects. Since he was primarily unavailable for shooting, the producers let him go, and thus, Hugh Jackman replaced him. Jackman played the part so well that it’s nearly impossible to find someone who can live up to his standard.
