Earlier today, Hugh Jackman revealed on his Instagram that he went in for skin cancer treatment. According to the message he left on the photo sharing site, he was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, the most frequent form of cancer. An estimated 2.8 million cases of this form of cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Read what Hugh said on his Instagram, and please do follow his advice about getting checked and protecting your skin.

Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil [sic] cell carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!

Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on Hugh Visits ‘Big Fish’ on Broadway

On November 13th, Hugh Jackman visited the company of Big Fish on Broadway. Once upon a time, Hugh was actually slated to appear in this musical adaptation of the Tim Burton film; however, the role eventually went to Norbert Leo Butz (who starred alongside Hugh in the Carnegie Hell performance of Carousel).

Also in attendance at Wednesday’s matinee was Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour (not pictured) and fellow Aussie Geoffrey Rush. (Remember: Hugh is currently rumored to be in talks to star in Rush’s upcoming movie-musical adaptation of The Drowsy Chaperone. Perhaps they talked more about it at yesterday’s run-in.)

Chappie, Film News, Houdini, Rumored Projects, Stage Work Comments Off on EW Talks to Hugh About Wolverine, ‘Chappie,’ and Future Musicals

Entertainment Weekly recently spoke to Hugh Jackman, getting him to answer some much buzzed about topics such as another go at Wolverine, his upcoming film Chappie, and whether or not he’ll do some more movie-musicals. The entire article is a good read about his professional future, so I highly recommend checking it out (or at least the parts I underlined).

Just as The Wolverine claws its way toward DVD/Blu-ray on Dec. 3rd, talk is heating up about a possible sequel. For his part, star Hugh Jackman has neither confirmed nor denied whether he’ll sign on to play muttonchopped mutant Logan for an eighth time… but the odds are looking good. “I was on the phone with Jim Mangold last night,” Jackman told EW. “There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet.”

Jackman insists that his lapsing contract with Fox, which reportedly will need to be renegotiated after X-Men: Days of Future Past premieres in May, doesn’t mean he’s leaving the franchise in limbo. “I started with a two-picture deal on the first two [X-Men films], and from that point on, it’s been movie by movie — not just me, but Fox and Jim and everyone,” he says. “I do want to do it with Jim and with [producer] Lauren Shuler-Donner because we had such a great experience. I’m really proud of The Wolverine.”

The star believes he’s mentally more committed to the character than he’s ever been. “I kind of am enjoying him more than ever… Being older helps playing Wolverine. He’s 200 or 300 years old — no one really knows — and he’s sort of world-weary. The actual working out gets harder and harder, I’ll admit.”

Deadline broke the news earlier today that director James Mangold (Kate & Leopold) is in talks with Fox to direct a follow-up film to The Wolverine. With strong international numbers for the recent Japanese saga ($413 million worldwide), Fox is apparently interested in exploring more of the character. Mangold is currently making a deal to write the treatment, while “X-Men franchise matriarch” Lauren Shuler Donner is already attached to produce should the project move forward.

The storyline is being kept under tight wraps, but is anyone else interested in seeing Hugh tackle Old Man Logan? I think it’d be a perfect way to bow out of the franchise, if he’s thinking of storing the claws for good in coming years.

Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on ‘After Midnight’ Broadway Opening Night

It’s been a while since Hugh Jackman’s attended a Broadway opening night, but he’s gone back to his theatrical roots: on November 3rd, he was at the opener for the new hit show, After Midnight. Starring Fantasia Barrino, the show is “a heart-pounding new musical brings the sexy, smoky glamour of Harlem’s Golden Age to a whole new generation.” Hugh’s friend Warren Carlyle – who choreographed Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway – also worked on After Midnight. Photos of Hugh bundled up on the red carpet have been added to the gallery.

Charities, Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on 2013 Angel Ball

Hugh Jackman joined his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, and mother-in-law for the 2013 Angel Ball on October 29th, which was held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York. The ball is an annual event for Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, which celebrates humanitarian and philanthropic contributions for cancer research. Deb’s mother, Fay Duncan, was being honored for her work as chairman of Australia’s Fight Cancer Foundation. This year’s event – which had performances by Usher and Pharell – raised three million dollars. Check out what Hugh told Entertainment Tonight about the Ball and his mother-in-law:

“It means everything to me. It’s a fantastic ball. What [Denise Rich, the Grammy-nominated songwriter and philanthropist who started Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation] has created is amazing, and her foresight to honor this incredible woman – my mother-in-law – and I’m not just saying that to get brownie points, she really is incredible. She started the Fight Cancer Foundation in Australia with her colleagues… It’s amazing what they’ve done.”
