Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman has revealed that his hair perm almost made him lose his action-packed role in

Wolverine

.



Hugh, who had got the perm for his role in a musical called

Curly

in Oklahoma, revealed that his perm put off Dougray Scott, the casting director of

Wolverine

.



"I was doing a musical in London at the time, playing Curly in Oklahoma - so I had a perm in my hair,"

Contactmusic

quoted him as saying.



"So I put the hat on to do the audition and about halfway through, the casting director was like, 'That was great, could you do one without the hat? I can't really see Wolverine wearing a baseball cap. I took it off and I read about two lines and she goes, 'Cut, put the hat on - now!'" he added.



However, luck favoured Hugh when filming of

Mission Impossible

overran and Scott was asked to complete the flick first, that is when Hugh re-auditioned and the rest is history.
