Facts
Between 2000-05 Dougray (real first name Stephen) was married to casting director Sarah Trevis (Ewan McGregor was his best man at their wedding), while in 2007 Dougray married actress Claire Forlani. Dougray was the original choice to play Wolverine in the X-Men films, but he had a scheduling conflict with MI2. The role eventually went to Hugh Jackman. Dougray was also in the running to replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in 2002, but that role eventually went to Daniel Craig. That's an interesting couple of 'what-ifs'... If Tom Cruise hadn't have hand-picked Dougray to play the villain in Mission Impossible 2, then the Scotsman might have ended up being Wolverine - but probably not James Bond as well. So would Daniel Craig have ended up as 007 in that alternative reality too...?
