Highly entertaining interview with Glenn Danzig at LA Weekly today, in which the singer comments on what he would've done differently from Hugh Jackman in the X-Men films, whether or not he collects action figures of himself and whether or not he's ever killed anyone. No, really. Here are some excerpts:
“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.
Lastly, are there any other musicians with whom you'd like to throw down in the ring? You can call out anybody.
No. The best fight is the fight that you don't get in. If I want to fuck somebody up, I will just walk behind them and slice their throat. Why waste time fighting?
Have you sliced someone's throat?
Why would I tell you that?”
