Thomas Jane as Hex Photo is Sort of Real, Sort of Not Real, Completely Unreal

Thomas Jane has finally come out to address the dubious photograph of him made-up like half-disfigured comic cowboy Jonah Hex, saying, "Yes, that's me dressed as a comic book character, but not in any official capacity. I just thought maybe if I dressed up like Hex, they might cast me as him, and it's only kind of pathetic." From Film School Rejects:

Yeah, the pic is real all right – my pal Akiva Goldsman told me about the project and I fell in love with the idea right away. Being a huge fan of all things Hex – I just couldn’t help myself. I called up my buddy Chris Nelson and we spent a Saturday afternoon working up some make-up for this impromptu shoot and I fired a few pics off to Warners. How do people get a hold of this shit? It’s a little embarrassing seeing my fanboy enthusiasm spilled all over the web, but great scripts don’t come around too often, especially for characters I love.

We can only hope Warner Bros. takes note of Jane's commitment to career-forwarding cosplay and gives him the chance to finally be recognized as a comic book character with guns.
