Re: In Place of Hugh Jackman?
I think the main thing is that Jackman seems, at times, to be trying to maintain an image of being a megastar. And maybe he has no terrible inner demons that can colour his character a little. He's an all-round nice guy.
But sometimes flaws can make an actor more interesting. Tortured souls and those with that inner black hole they have fed with addictions (like Downey, Oldman, Ledger) can make great actors because they bring their flawed personas to the screen.
