Hugh Jackman is getting candid about his desire to star in the James Bond films!
In a new interview, the 46-year-old actor revealed he was once asked to play Agent 007 eight years ago before the film franchise's current star Daniel Craig accepted the role.
"I sort of have [been asked]. At the time I was just about to do X-Men 2 and I was like, 'Ah, I don't think it's the right time.' But it was not an easy one to give up," he said during a sit-down with The Project.

When asked if he'd ever take over the role from Daniel, 47, in the future, Hugh coyly replied, "I'd seriously consider it."

Earlier this week, Daniel — who has portrayed James Bond in four films; Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre — admitted he may be ready to end his reign playing the infamous special agent.
When asked if he'd like to continued starring in the franchise's future movies during a recent interview with Esquire, Daniel said, "At this moment, no. I have a life and I've got to get on with it a bit. But we'll see."
