Celebrated actor James Marsden, who is well-known for his role as 'Cyclops' in X-Men movies, feels that turning down one important role in the movie Magic Mike wasn't a wise decision and that he wishes he hadn't done that.

During an interview, James Marsden opened up regarding his life and career in Hollywood and says he shouldn't have rejected that role in Magic Mike, which was offered to him in the first place.

Marsden explained that Steven Soderbergh, the director of the movie had offered him a role as a male stripper in the movie, but James was bit hesitant on that part and the role ultimately passed on to another actor.

"Soderbergh is one of my favorites, But I didn't know if I trusted myself to be good enough in this to not have my two dozen lines end up on the editing-room floor. I'd look like a naked extra in this movie," said Marsden.

"It's perfect the way it worked out, but that's one of the only ones I'm like, Hmm. I didn't know it was gonna be the massive success that it was," he added.

Marsden as for now, is gearing up to appear in the drama Westworld, which will be aired on HBO on October 2.
