I don't think he had the proper voice or face. Attitiude is only the actor portraying what is written in the script and at the director's instruction.
Jackman's voice isn't nearly deep or rough enough, he has a very soft intonation. His face is way too thin with a too long nose to wear the mutton chops he has in the movies.
You can not be serious when you say that height is not a major issue. Wolverine is called a "runt' by just about everyone he fights. If his height wasn't important to Marvel, why would they create a character who is such a bad-a$$, then make him 5'3"? His height (or lack thereof) is incredibly important, just not to you.
