Oh, Danzig

DANZIG Says He Would've Played Wolverine "Less Gay" Than Hugh Jackman

You read that right, folks. The headline says it all.

Ahh Danzig, almost as fun to write about as Dave Mustaine. Seeing as though I am theWalter Cronkite of metal (or maybe the Barbara Walters), I met Danzig once and interviewed him. He was cool, he said I looked like the son of the Big Show. Meeting Danzig really humanized him to me, because I always heard crazy stories about how he had bricks outside of his house and wouldn't remove them, his affinity for french onion soup, his stand-offishness, or he enjoyed picking up kitty litter.

Well, a recent interview with LA Weekly helped to dehumanize him a bit. He was asked about being approached to play Wolverine in the X-Men movies, something I am just hearing about now, and his response? Classic Danzig!

"Early in the film's pre-production, you were in talks to play Wolverine in X-Men. How would you have played Logan/Wolverine differently than Hugh Jackman?
It wouldn't have been as gay. Actually, he wasn't the first choice. They hired Dougray Scott. He had a falling out with the director, and then they hired Hugh Jackman. I'm glad I didn't do it. It was terrible.

Wait, what? While there have certainly been rumors questioning actor Hugh Jackman's sexuality (the guy loves Broadway), when seeing him play Wolverine, never once did I think "he's playing it too gay." Also, what does that even mean? I don't recall a scene where he was a little close too Cyclops. Was this in an extended version? Dear God, is Danzig a homophobe?
