Thomas Jane Jonah Hex photo debunked

A few days ago the Film School Rejects posted the above photo portraying Thomas Jane in grizzled Jonah Hex form. But they weren't quite sure what the deal was. Had Jane been approached to play the role? Was the film further in development than anyone thought? Turns out it was neither. According to Jane, he just spent a day putting the makeup to send into Warner Brothers, showing them what he would look like as Jonah Hex. "Yeah, the pic is real all right – my pal Akiva Goldsman told me about the project and I fell in love with the idea right away. Being a huge fan of all things Hex – I just couldn’t help myself. I called up my buddy Chris Nelson and we spent a Saturday afternoon working up some make-up for this impromptu shoot and I fired a few pics off to Warners. How do people get a hold of this shit? It’s a little embarrassing seeing my fanboy enthusiasm spilled all over the web, but great scripts don’t come around too often, especially for characters I love." So there you have it kids. All it was was a guy dressing up as one of his favorite characters and sending the photos of to the movie studios. Just so happens that the guy is Thomas Jane, and he's a famous actor. Still though, you've got to hope that WB enjoys the enthusiasm and shortlists him for the Jonah Hex role, but we'll see. Thomas Jane not quite Jonah Hex
