David Harbour Hijacks Student\'s Senior Photos After Twitter Joke Goes Viral

David Harbour had the strangest thing happen to him at his audition for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Talking to TheWrap, the Stranger Things star recalled how he was considered for the role of The Blob in the first Wolverine spin-off movie, only to be told that he was 'too fat' for it.

The audition came about when he met one of the casting directors for the movie who told him he'd be "perfect" for The Blob.

"She was like, 'Yeah it's like an X-Men, he's like big, fat and controls gravity', and I was like, 'Okay, wow, that's flattering'. And she was like, 'No, no, it's not that you're fat, it's just that we need a big guy to wear the suit'," Harbour explained.

The 6'3" actor went for the audition and made a little joke at the end of it where he lifted his shirt, squeezed his belly and said: "I got your Blob right here!"

Only it didn't pan out quite how he hoped.

"They called me and the director [Gavin Hood], we met at a hotel, and he was like, 'David, look, you're wonderful, we really think you're just a great actor, we're just concerned'," Harbour noted.

"I was like, 'Why, what's your concern? I'm good to go. I'm available, let's do this'. And they were like, 'No, it's just, you lifted up your shirt and we saw the... we're just a little worried about your health'."

Lost and The Strain star Kevin Durand ended up getting the role of The Blob and, given how the movie turned out, maybe Harbour should be pleased that he didn't get it.

It's not like it's harmed his career either, going on to feature in Netflix's surprise hit Stranger Things and taking over the role of Hellboy for the upcoming R-rated reboot, with the original Hellboy Ron Perlman recently giving him his blessing.

Stranger Things returns to Netflix on Halloween.
