Hugh Jackman of X-Men: The Last Stand
Interview by Daniel Robert Epstein
Even after the cool stuff Wolverine did in the previous X-Men films, Hugh Jackman and director Brett Ratner have topped themselves with what they've done in X-Men: The Last Stand. Wolverine is now living and training with the X-Men when suddenly Magneto reappears on the scene to destroy a supposed "mutant cure."
UGO: What was it like doing the actual Fastball Special?
HUGH: The actual throw was done by his double because it was a potentially dangerous stunt. Daniel Cudmore [Colossus] would have done it, but they wouldn't allow him to do it. It was hard to get it straight and if I wasn't straight with it there were cameras I could hit. The cable I'm on is like 300 yards long and I'm flying right past the camera at fifty miles an hour.
