Hugh Jackman Decided To Quit Playing The Role Of Wolverine Because Of… Jerry Seinfeld
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has literally been the best part of the convoluted X-Men movie universe since its very first film way back in the year 2000. And Jerry Seinfeld is the reason that Jackman decided to quit. Seriously.
In a discussion with with Willem Dafoe for Variety, Jackman changed his story from what he said on The Dr. Oz Show as to why he quit playing Wolverine, “It just felt like it was the right time to do it.”
Instead, Jackman shared a story with Dafoe about how he spoke to Jerry Seinfeld about how he he decided to end his series.
“He said, ‘I’ve always believed, you should never spend everything creatively because it’s almost herculean to start up again. You should always have something in the tank,’” Jackman recalled. “Leave the party before it gets too late kind of theory.”
