Hugh Jackman took “really cold showers” to get into Wolverine game role

Wednesday, 8th April 2009 20:21 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


A Raven rep, speaking at GDC, told VG247 that Hugh Jackman really got into his Wolverine role while doing voiceovers for X-Men Origins.

“You should have seen him,” she said. “He really got into the role. He even got up first thing in the morning and took a really cold shower to get himself nice and angry for his part as Wolverine.”

No mention if he ripped anyone in the studio to shreds while he was at it, but it’s nice to know that method acting isn’t a lost art.

The game’s out for all formats on May 1.

    Wonder if the VO for game will be as overacted and cringe-worthy as the acting in the X-Men movies…

    Was the X-Men movies overacted or just poorly written with crap like this:

    “You know what happens to a frog when it get struck by lightning….?”

    Although for the record, I liked them. =>

    He took really cold showers to try and cleanse himself from the fact he was doing a videogame voiceover.

    So from this we’re can presume that Wolverine has very stiff nipples and a very tiny penis, right?
