NEW YORK (AP) – It’s the same old claws and crazy mutton chop sideburns as always. But Hugh Jackman says each time he does the role of “Wolverine,” it’s different. He has now suited up as the X-Men movie character six times – including the version that opens in theaters today. And he says each time he does, he tries to delve into the character’s psyche a little more. He says he enjoys being Wolverine more each time – and thinks it has something to do with his getting older. He says he figures Wolverine’s age to be between 150 and 300 years old. And Jackman says some mornings when he got those 4 a.m. wake-up calls, he felt every second of his character’s age.
