Hugh Jackman revealed that he turned down a role in the critically panned movie adaptation of Cats.
Jackman said he had conversations with director Tom Hooper about a role in the film but he turned it down because of commitments.  Jackman told The Daily Beast, “Umm…yep. You know, Tom rang me early on because we did Les Mis together, and there were a couple of options there based on availability and time, and I…just wasn’t available at the time.”  Jackman said he has not seen the movie and would not criticize it. He continued, “I’m in the theatre, man, and I don’t want to be in the business of bashing people — or jumping on bandwagons.”  Do you think anyone’s career was damaged by appearing in Cats?
