Some time back it was revealed that Australian actor Aaron Jeffery was signed to play a role in Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now the actor has confirmed to Australia's Daily Telegraph that he is, in fact, in the film - though he remains cagey about what role he may have.

In an interview discussing his series The Strip Jeffery offered a few words about X-Men Origins: Wolverine. "I can't say much, but it was a fantastic experience being part of the film ... It was the biggest sandpit I've ever played in," Jeffery said. He added "It was a dream to work with the director, Gavin (Hood)."

X-Men Origins: Wolverine explores Wolverine's early days, before joining the X-Men. The film will cover Logan's early life, and his involvement with the mysterious Weapon X program. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Dominic Monaghan, Danny Huston, Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch,, Daniel Henney, Scott Adkins and Lynn Collins. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is due to arrive in theatres in May 2009.
