How would you have liked Bob Hoskins as Wolverine?

Via Screen Rant:

Chris Claremont – probably the most renowned X-Men writer ever, having written everything from “The Phoenix Saga” to “Days of Future Past” – recently reflected on the potential X-Men film from way back when – the one produced by James Cameron (Avatar), directed by Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), and starring Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) as Wolverine and Angela Bassett (Waiting to Exhale) as Storm.

Hoskins? It sure is hard to imagine that after the svelte, buff Hugh Jackman assumed the role. But Claremont saw Hoskins in Lassiter (starring Tom Selleck) and thought he'd "be perfect" to play the Canuck X-Man. Here, you decide:

Bassett I can totally see as Storm. She's a better actress than Halle Berry, but certainly not as hot. Big-time blockbusters tend to go for the latter.

As you know, Wolverine in the comics is very short and stocky like Hoskins. Hugh Jackman is athletic, but also six foot two.
