“As soon as I saw the script, I got it,” Hugh told EW. “Logan is someone who is most scared of intimacy, and so he wants to be alone and do things for himself. The idea that, in the end, he must give his life to save someone else… I thought that was really powerful.”
Hugh revealed that he knew it was time to retire his character after having dinner with Jerry Seinfeld in 2013, when he asked the comedian about leaving his show Seinfeld.
“The moment he said it, I was like, ‘This is it,’” Hugh said. “I’m quite indecisive, but when I get that gut feeling, it’s kind of a relief to me. When I met my wife, I knew. With the kids, I knew. When I was talking to Jerry that day, I was like, ‘Oh, yeah.’”
