to answer your question of "What is wrong with Hugh Jackman", I will answer it yet again with this: If the character of Wolverine had been protrayed for the last 30 years as being 6'4" tall, and let's say someone of Tom Cruise's size and weight (and Cruise is pretty good at getting into great shape for a movie) were selected to play the character, people would go off.
One of the defining elements of Wolverine's character is his height.
But this is a movie. Did you really expect them to cast someone short and ugly as a male lead in a Hollywood production? And if you ask me, acting far outweighs physical appearance when it comes to casting. It is
important, but it can be overlooked when the person is a really good choice for the role acting-wise.
