from Thomas Jane IMDB page -
2011, on making The Punisher) You know, I remember the workout regiment and training with the Navy SEALs was intense. That, and somebody forgot to replace the real knife with the prop knife for the scene with Kevin Nash, and I ended up stabbing him in the chest. And, you know, he's about 7'4", and... that was an interesting moment. [Laughs.] I still don't think they've gotten a Punisher movie right. They've made three of 'em now, and he's yet to be done correctly.
Other interesting tidbits -
Was Zack Snyder's first choice for Edward Blake/The Comedian in Watchmen (2009), but he had to turn it down because of scheduling conflicts with Dark Country (2009).
Was very interested in playing the lead in Jonah Hex (2010). He even voiced the character in the animated short DC Showcase: Jonah Hex (2010) (V).
Was offered a chance to reprise the role of Frank Castle in Punisher: War Zone (2008), but turned it down.
There was a different vibe in that movie with the intense opening massacre and then the wacky apartment scenes with the geeks and hot chick. I just caught up to it a few months ago but enjoyed it.
