‘Mission: Impossible 2’ actor Dougray Scott says Tom Cruise made him give up Wolverine role: ‘He said I couldn’t’

  ‘Mission: Impossible 2’ actor Dougray Scott says Tom Cruise made him give up Wolverine role: ‘He said I couldn’t’ Scottish actor Dougray Scott — not Hugh Jackman — was all set to play Wolverine in the X-Men movies, beginning with director Bryan Singer's first foray back in 2000. Though Russell Crowe was Singer's first choice, the Oscar winner turned the role down, suggesting the then-unknown Jackman, a fellow Australian, instead. Because Jackman was an unknown quantity, Singer offered the role to Scott, who took it. Now Scott has claimed that it was Tom Cruise who wouldn't allow him to take the role.Speaking to the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph, Scott said: “Tom Cruise didn’t let me do it.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The inevitable Cam Newton-Carolina Panthers divorce has been a gathering storm in the distance for months.

The thunder and lightning finally arrived in droves Tuesday, as the Panthers said they would “give” the best quarterback in team history permission to seek a trade even as they were in the midst of negotiating a deal with former New Orleans backup Teddy Bridgewater.

Cam Newton avoided answering a good football question on Wednesday and instead responded to Eric Rowe made first contact with Funchess three yards beyond the line of scrimmage, but Funchess Observer columnist Scott Fowler quoted Rodrigue as saying that Newton did not apologize, and

Newton fired back via social media, saying the team “forced me into this” and that he had never wanted to leave the Carolina team he starred for from 2011-19.

There’s no going back. Newton will one year headline a Panthers’ Hall of Honor class — once the emotions die down — but he will never play another snap for the Panthers. The team will either trade him or release him.

Bridgewater will be Carolina’s quarterback in 2020. ESPN reported Tuesday that Bridgewater, 27, has agreed to a three-year, $60 million contract with Carolina that could be signed once the new league financial year begins Wednesday, and an Observer source confirmed a deal with Bridgewater was being finalized.

Meanwhile, if you are keeping score at home, that makes three Panthers icons to have left the team in the past two months. And only one of those three departures went smoothly. Could no one from the Panthers organization get these guys on the same page?

Chargers reportedly sticking with Tyrod Taylor after missing out on Tom Brady: So what's the plan?

  Chargers reportedly sticking with Tyrod Taylor after missing out on Tom Brady: So what's the plan? After watching Tom Brady commit to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Los Angeles Chargers are reportedly out of the veteran quarterback transaction business. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Chargers won’t pursue a veteran via free agency or trade. The Chargers couldn’t fill a 27,000-seat soccer stadium with home fans with Philip Rivers under center. Will Chargers pursue Tua?

The Panthers quarterback gave an answer, but only after saying, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.” The conversation, according to Rodrigue, was not taped but went something like this Then he gestured toward the locker room, still filled with her colleagues. Rodrigue ended by asking

But Newton said his dance isn't about mocking the other team but bringing a 'kid- like ' joy and entertainment to his fans. A Nashville mom is calling Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton a model for 'egotism and arrogance' after he celebrated his final touchdown on Sunday with a 'dab' dance.

While the decision to part ways with Newton makes football sense — Bridgewater is 3 1/2 years younger, not as banged up and went 5-0 as a starter for New Orleans in 2019 — the team sure could have handled this better.

Let’s review: While Luke Kuechly’s videotaped retirement went fine, tight end Greg Olsen later insisted that what the Panthers called a “mutual” parting of the ways in late January was, in fact, not mutual at all.

And now we have Newton — prideful, volatile, charismatic and obviously angry with the way it has ended under a head coach in Matt Rhule, who clearly has decided to do a deep cleaning of the Panthers’ roster.

Newton’s social-media response Tuesday to the Panthers’ announcement that he can seek a trade is worth printing in full.

“STOP WITH THE WORD PLAY!!” he wrote in his signature font. “ i never asked for it!! THERE IS NO DODGING THIS ONE; i love the @panthers TO DEATH AND WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU GUYS!! PLEASE DO NOT TRY AND PLAY ME, or MANIPULATE THE NARRATIVE AND ACT LIKE I WANTED THIS; you forced me into this!!”

Panthers to trade QB Kyle Allen to Washington

  Panthers to trade QB Kyle Allen to Washington A 2018 UDFA, Allen was the Panthers’ primary starter last season under Ron Rivera. He had just signed an extension March 10. Washington will send a fifth-round pick to Carolina for Allen, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The #Redskins sent a 5th round pick to the #Panthers in exchange for QB Kyle Allen, source said. With Carolina signing PJ Walker today, this helps the QB room take shape.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 23, 2020 This will not only reunite Allen with Rivera, but Washington has former Panthers QBs coach Scott Turner on board as offensive coordinator.

Panthers QB Cam Newton FINALLY issues heartfelt apology for condescending comments to a female reporter after losing Dannon Yogurt sponsor. Cam Newton issued a public apology Thursday evening after he faced huge backlash for sexist remarks that he made to a female sports reporter.

Olsen replied to Newton’s diatribe on social media with two words: “Sounds familiar.” It’s not a good look for Rhule, owner David Tepper or general manager Marty Hurney to have both Newton and Olsen disputing the facts of their respective breakups.

To some extent, even this mess could be predicted.

There was passion on both sides of the Panthers/Cam marriage. They saw each other through an MVP season; a lost Super Bowl; a fight with teammate Josh Norman; a car accident; multiple injuries and recoveries; a business decision to not jump on a Super Bowl fumble; dozens of “Superman” poses; Tennessee Mom; the clothes; the creation of the “Sunday giveaway” celebration and all sorts of fantastic community work.

And passion usually leads to pain. That pain is hidden better in the Tom Brady-New England breakup — announced on the very same day as this one — but it’s there. No matter how good you are, one day your old team doesn’t really want you anymore. Everyone is expendable.

Carolina Panthers release QB Cam Newton to complete overhaul

  Carolina Panthers release QB Cam Newton to complete overhaul Cam Newton's career in Carolina is coming to an unceremonious end, as the former NFL MVP was released by the Panthers on Tuesday.The Panthers released the former MVP on Tuesday, sealing an unceremonious finish to the quarterback's nearly decade-long run with the team.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton thought a female reporter’s question about routes was "funny." His response was just another sexist jab in a It wasn't. And neither were Jameis Winston’s comments at an elementary school earlier this year when he said boys needed to be strong while

25. were made to wash. 26. " Let 's play chess", he said. # 27. not like Michael to be . 28. You can play football, but you must do your homework first. # 35 Please don't leave the building because we might need to speak to you again.

Say this for Cam: He took the Panthers from irrelevancy to relevancy, and he did that from his very first two games as a rookie in 2011, throwing for 400-plus yards in both of them.

For better or for worse, Newton was a star who made everyone feel something. Now he’s feeling abandoned, and he will undoubtedly try to pull off a Steve Smith “blood-and-guts” redemption when he faces the Panthers on the field.

To be clear, the Panthers are actually making the correct call on the football field. Newton will likely find himself in a better long-term situation than on a team that just went 5-11 and is committed to starting over with Bridgewater and new offensive coordinator Joe Brady (who worked with Bridgewater with the Saints).

It just hurts, on both sides. And there’s nothing to do now but cut the cord.

Newton and the Panthers, once roped together so tightly, are only connected now by a single strand.

They never won a Super Bowl together. But they sure had some fun.
