One of the most endearing features about Patrick Stewart - aka Professor X in the soon to be released X-Men: Days of Future Past - is his boundless, childlike enthusiasm about the process of making movies. If you get him talking about the process of becoming Professor X, he will as often as not reward you with the wonderment of a small child who has somehow been allowed to be one of the X-Men.

Talking about his wheelchair - which can totally fly in the new movie - he's even more enthusiastic than usual. You can check it out in the featurette below:

Hugh Jackman, on the other hand, tends to show a little more restraint - he's more the enthusiastic teenager, conscious of retaining a Fonz-like cool while bubbling over with internal excitement - never more so than when he's discussing playing 'The Wolverine', a part he obviously has far too much fun with for it to be properly considered a job.

You can check him out in full flow in the featurette below:

The big lesson here - other than the fact that flying wheelchairs sure have come a long way since the 90's X-Men TV series - is that if you weren't already planning on adding Patrick Stewart to your fantasy dinner party lists, then you're making a fatal mistake.
