**SPOILERS FOR EDDIE THE EAGLE (but come on. It's based on a true story anyway!)**

In the true story of Eddie the Eagle, Hugh Jackman plays Bronson Peary, a gruff, disgraced ski jumper who unwillingly trains the eponymous Eddie Edwards. Although the film is based on real events, Bronson Peary was a character created specifically for the film, and shares some striking similarities between the fictional character, Wolverine.

He's always down to drink

You won't find Bronson Peary anywhere without a drink in his hand (usually his American Flag flask). In fact, the guy doesn't even wear a jacket in the freezing cold (referring to his flask as his "jacket"). That sounds like a guy with mutant healing powers to me.

He's a loner

Why is a former American Olympian hiding in the secluded cold of Europe? Is he hiding from a dark past? I'm not talking about his dark past in the Olympics... Could it be possible he's hiding from his involvement in World War II? Or Japan?

I do.
I do.

He lands a 90 meter ski jump while smoking a cigarette... with no helmet

Drunk off of his ass, Bronson Peary gets on the 90 meter ski jump (that's almost 300 feet), without a helmet, lights a cigarette, and lands it clean. That doesn't just take balls. That takes mutant balls.

Arguably, Wolverine would have smoked a cigar, but maybe a cigarette is more wind resistant.

No skis? No Problem.

Immaculate hair cut

He may not rock the signature Wolverine haircut, but just like Wolverine, you won't find ne'er a hair out of place on Peary's perfect crew cut.

Always down to fight

Honestly, there aren't as many fight scenes as I wanted in the movie [just one :( ], but I feel that's more of a criticism on my unrealistic expectations than the movie itself. However, the one fight scene does show Peary's quick-to-fight temper. He throws a punch, no questions asked, to defend his friend.

He loses the fight... pretty quickly... but that wouldn't be the case with claws.

Chill, Peary. It's not that serious.

BONUS:

This doesn't have to do anything with Bronson Peary being Wolverine, but...

There's a scene where he pretends he's cumming to Bo Derek. I won't explain anymore than that, but the movie is worth seeing for that reason alone.
