According to Dark Horizons, Hugh Jackman will not be playing Agent 007 in the upcoming Bond Movies. While Jackman has not come out and stated his reasons for not taking the role, his “friends insist that he was simply too busy.”
Others have offered that the new films "has become a role for an ‘up-and-coming’ actor and not an established personality" such as Jackman. Other reports say that Jackman may have felt that such a seminal role could have “stereotyped” him.
Another Australian newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald, added to the rumor mill saying that Hugh Jackman turned down 007 after talking with his wife Deborah Lee-Furness.
Jackman is currently working with esteemed Director Woody Allen in London.
