If you missed Hugh Jackman on “60 Minutes” tonight, click on the above image to view the 13-minute long profile. As to be expected from the program, it was great, with highlights from Les Misérables (including stunning clips of Hugh’s take on “Bring Him Home” and “Valjean’s Soliloquy”) and talk of family life. Hugh recently confirmed on an Australian radio interview that his dad was not doing well health-wise, and it shows when he speaks of his father and family. Also, there are some looks at Hugh as a baby and in high school, as they show him visiting Knox Grammar School. There’s a transcript you can read here.
