Could you imagine Hugh Jackman playing Ryan Gosling's role in 2011's Drive?! In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hugh revealed he pulled out of the surprise hit, which he actually had developed, because he was unsure about working with new director Nicolas Winding Refn. Other roles he admits to passing on include Richard Gere's role in 2002's Chicago, and he also declined to be considered for the role of James Bond, which eventually went to Daniel Craig.
