I have to admire the man's dediction - can anyone translate the weight to pounds? http://www.moviehole.net/news/20071221_jackman_packing_it_on_for_wolv.html Jackman packing it on for Wolverine Date : December 21, 2007 Writer :Clint Morris As some may know, one of my main crusts thatd be how I feed my wife and child - is working for a sports-mag company in particular, I serve as the entertainment ed for the martial arts, wrestling, Muscle-type titles. You always hear little bits and pieces through work, but never nothing thatll interest anyone outside of the Kickboxer II : The Road Back fan club or those in the Oliver Grunner forums. Anyway, over beers tonight, I heard from a colleague one of the chaps from the abovesaid shingle a bit of news about X-Men Origins : Wolverine, which, I have to admit, was a little more interesting than the usual Van Dammes sponsoring a new sports drink in Asia gossip you usually hear. This chap knows Hugh Jackmans trainer and told me just how far Hugh Jackman is dedicating himself to the role of the clawed mutant. Jackmans getting about three hours sleep a night at the moment and spending most of his hours in the gym. He wants to be the beefiest and muscliest hes ever been to play Wolverine in the film. He was about 80kg in the original, maybe 90 in the second or third one, but he wants to pack on a little extra padding this time hoping to get the scales to reflect a figure over 100. The mans diet at the moment is pretty extreme he eats about six times a day, usually every three hours. Nothing that tasty either lots of vegetables (plates of it), fruit and protein shake-fixes. Aaron Jeffrey is also in final talks to join the cast of the X-Men spin-off. No word on whether hes been downing a few egg milkshakes and catching up on some laps on the treadmill. Jeffreys film credits include The Interview with Hugo Weaving and Strange Planet with Naomi Watts. The first scenes for X-Men : Origins will be filmed in New Zealand. Theyve found some locations there naturally that look eerily similar to some of the mountain-esque locations in the first couple of X-Men movies. All of the stage work for the film will be shot in Sydney though. It isnt much, and no doubt the story was a lot more interesting heard first-hand, but since its a slow news day/week . I thought Id mention it.
