Playboy owner Hugh Hefner wants Australian actor Hugh Jackman to play him in a biopic of his life.
The magazine mogul, who turned 80 this year, wants to make a film based on his life charting the rise of the famous men's magazine.
Hefner insists Jackman - who is currently starring as virtually indestructible mutant Wolverine in new movie 'X-Men: The Last Stand - would be perfect to portray him.
He said: "I'd love Jackman to play me. I think he's great."
Meanwhile, Jackman has revealed he refused to have his scrotum waxed for his role in the 'X Men: The Last Stand'.
The actor had to be smooth all over to be able to fit into his character's leather cat-suit, but he insists he drew the line at his privates.
He said: "I was waxed, every bit of hair. My torso, my legs, everything was gone - well, not completely.
"I insisted on them leaving that area alone."(C) BANG Media International
