It seems like every time you turn on the television this week, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” star Hugh Jackman is popping his claws for the camera. This morning on ESPN2’s morning show “First Take,” Jackman was in front of the camera once again, talking sports with Wolverine superfan Brian Dawkins — who also just happens to be a Pro Bowl safety for the Denver Broncos.
Along with sharing his thoughts on why Wolverine’s powers might not assure success on the field, Jackman chatted with Dawkins about their respective collections of Wolverine merchandise. Jackman’s favorite? A “Wolverine” movie punching bag that he gave his son which, according to Jackman, his son likes to “wail away on” whenever he gets sent to his room.
Well, it’s better than a do-it-yourself adamantium bone-coating kit, I guess.
What do you think of Jackman’s ESPN appearance? Impressed with the “Wolverine” star’s bench press? Think Wolverine could find success on the football field? Let us know!
