Liev Schreiber Speaks on X-Men Origins: Wolverine

by at . Comments

Hugh Jackman is receiving the bulk of attention for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Which makes sense. The actor does play Wolverine and all.

But an antagonist is only as good as his enemy. And that role is played by Liev Schreiber in the upcoming blockbuster.

Wolverine vs. Sabertooth

Below, the actor talks about the experience of filming the movie and portraying Sabertooth:

It was insanely fun. I felt again, I felt very self conscious initially because I knew fans didn't like that idea of me playing Sabertooth. I think I am perceived as a kind of urbane New York … I don't know maybe I've done too many movies with Jewish characters [laughter] and they're like "It's like Woody Allen playing Sabertooth" and I'm like no actually it's not. I'm 6 foot 3 I'm bigger than Hugh Jackman [laughter] I can do this.
