A new discovery has stripped Paul Hogan of the title of Most Australian Man Ever. You see when Hogan made it big with those Crocodile Dundee movies, offers apparently started to come in to potentially join an even bigger league. At the time Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were killing pissants by the truckload.
Their violent actions were popular. And Paul Hogan could have had a piece of the action. But he turned it down, according to an interview in the late 1980s. Here is what he told the magazine TV Week in 1988 (June 4th, page 11);
The movie scene is screaming out for the movie hero who doesn’t kill 75 people… less of those commandos, terminators, ex-terminators and squashers. Mick’s a good role model. There’s no malice in the fellow and he’s human. He’s not a wimp or a sissy just because he doesn’t kill people.
Well, to quote Meat Loaf… bullshit, motherfucker! Basically Hogan is shitting on Arnold, Sly and probably Walter_B. I don’t know, maybe the offers they were giving him were shitty and it was a dose of sour grapes or maybe Hogan is simply a girlie man!
Anyway, they should’ve given the role of Crocodile Dundee to the Australian Vernon Wells. Now c’mon, you know that makes sense. Especially if it was R-Rated. When Hogan pulls a knife, you feel like he’s actually going to use it. Wells, on the other hand…
