While there, he was asked which professional athlete he thought would be make a good X-Man." "You got to have extra abilities, but you got to have a little bit of dysfunction underneath," said Jackman. "Richard Sherman's got a little bit of edge and a little bit of a Beast quality to him." Sherman is a cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks perhaps best known for letting his "Beast" side show in a rant following the 2013 NFC Championship game. Jackman also mentions Lebron James, who he says has the capabilities but is too well adjusted, and Michael Jordan, for his Professor X-like ability to manipulate a game with his mind. X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters May 23.
