Phew. Lots of candid pictures from yesterday, October 4th! The first set is of Hugh arriving at and leaving “Good Morning America” as well as arriving at “Late Show with David Letterman.” The second set is of him leaving the former talk show in an outfit change. The last and final set looks to be him arriving home after “Letterman,” sans jacket. As a heads up: I’ve also added GMA pictures to this post, which you can check out here.

Articles, Film News, General News, Press, Real Steel Comments Off on “I was scared to get help,” says Hugh about Singing

The Telegraph has posted a great new article on Hugh Jackman, talking about a range of subjects. Most of it is information fans may already know about, but there’s the occasional tidbit that causes pause. For example, did you know he took singing lessons only two years ago to “relearn the wheel”? The article has been added to the press archive, although you can read an excerpt below and go straight to the source to read more:

Hugh Jackman has just wolfed down 12 ounces of filet mignon and steamed green beans. It’s 4pm, and this is his fifth meal of the day. One of Hollywood’s consummate shape-shifters, Jackman is currently beefing up to once again play Wolverine, animalistic star of the X-Men films. He tells me he has three different wardrobes, which he rotates according to the type of film he’s making: “thin suits, Hugh suits and fat suits”.

We meet in a creamy-coloured hotel suite in Beverly Hills. Jackman is wearing a T-shirt, dark jeans, and looks lean and chiselled. Unusually for an actor, he doesn’t take himself at all seriously and has not an ounce of self-consciousness. Which is a good thing, considering what his new film is about. Real Steel is set in a near-future in which giant robots box each other to the death for the entertainment of the masses. Jackman plays an underdog trainer rebuilding his relationship with his son as they work together on rebuilding a robot. Of course he does.

I know what you’re thinking, because I thought it too. But Real Steel is an unexpected delight, a mix of RoboCop and The Champ filled with heart, and Jackman’s screen charisma. It seems the man who makes Broadway hoofing seem macho can also give steel warmth.

Jackman understands my scepticism. “For a year and a half people have been saying to me, ‘What are you doing? A robot boxing movie?’” he says, turning his nose up in an expression of mock befuddlement. “But it’s a tale of redemption. My character gets a second chance but sometimes that second chance is more frightening than the first because you know what to expect.” Does he mean he’s more comfortable with pain than with trying to succeed?

“Exactly. That’s what fascinated me about Charlie [his character], and that’s what happens to all of us. We repeat behaviour and start blaming everything outside ourselves for why things are going this way. It’s much easier dealing with disappointment.” Does he think he’s ever done that? “Yeah. In some ways we’re all like that.” He searches unprompted for an example. “This is the first thing that comes to mind. I’ve been asked a couple of times to sing and I get quite nervous.”

Film News, General News, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, Interviews, Press, Stage Work, The Greatest Showman on Earth Comments Off on Hugh Talks Broadway, Past and Present; Updates on ‘Greatest Showman’

Even more snippets from an interview with Collider have surfaced, this time about Broadway. Hugh Jackman talks about his upcoming one-man show at the Broadhurst, his experiences in the theater over the years, and even provides some additional information on the much-anticipated musical on P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman on Earth. Check out the snippets below:

On choosing songs for his one-man show:
“It took me a year [to choose which songs I would perform]. My overall goal was that I desperately wanted to sing these songs. So the whole show would have a thing for me where if I’m busy and let’s say I have two weeks off, I would be like ‘I really want to go do this show for a week.’ rather than ‘Okay. I’m doing this show.’ It was really important to me to really choose stuff that I love and not just stuff that I thought people would love. I have an eclectic kind of…there is some musical theater from stuff that I’ve done and there’s stuff that I have wanted to do that I haven’t done. There are also standards, rock and roll, and a little bit of everything.”

On what drew him to Broadway and the difference between other theaters:
“I’m lucky to have worked in theater all over the world, but there’s something magical about Broadway. The audiences are smart, they’re educated. They go in ready and they’re up for it, they’re up for the party. It’s a whole different atmosphere. A lot of the other places where you do theater you have a feeling that you have to win them over. There’s little bit of them sitting on their hands. In Broadway, if they don’t like you, they’ll let you know early on. But then they’re like ‘Alright. Let’s go. We’re ready for a good night.’ There’s some combination between that, the history, the proximity of all of these theaters, and the community that exists in the theater – it’s just amazing. There’s actually footage of me somewhere in 1996 when I was doing a musical down in Australia. They sent me to New York to do a column piece, it was like an Australian 60 Minutes. There’s footage of me in Times Square being a dickhead going, ‘Can you believe this?! Look at this! Maybe one day…’ So you have to be careful what you wish for.”

On The Greatest Showman on Earth:
“[It’s] this idea of a Barnum type character, that story about him, which I’ve always found fascinating, but not using the Cy Coleman music that was there, finding new music, finding a different way to tell the story. That came to me and I thought, ‘This is a great idea.’ I thought it would be a great part to play. There is a script, but there is no music yet. So it’s fair to say that it’s a long ways off.”

General News, Les Misérables, Rumored Projects Comments Off on On Les Mis: “I’ll just eat whatever I want.”

Sounds like Hugh Jackman isn’t going to have any dietary plans for the upcoming Les Miserables, saying that he’ll “eat whatever [he] wants.” He also mentions a possible appearance in “Glee” yet again in a new article, as read below:

Hugh Jackman is no stranger to countless hours in the gym and shoveling heaps of protein in his mouth for his roles, but for the upcoming big screen version of the musical Les Miserables, the actor will enjoy some dietary freedom.

“Tom Hooper from The King’s Speech is directing it,” Hugh told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman at the Real Steel Los Angeles premiere on Sunday when asked about his next project. “I’m very excited about that.”

The actor, who plays Jean Valjean in the musical, is looking forward to letting go of his usual big screen beefcake status.

I have to kind of age 19 years during the movie, which is pretty much how you feel during a movie, so it should just be all natural,” Hugh explained. “But this time, instead of eating steamed chicken during the movie, I’ll just eat whatever I want. Perfect. You’ll see me at the craft table!

Fans might also be seeing the actor in another musical setting.

Someone asked me the other day if I would be on ‘Glee,’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’ I’m trained to say yes to everything.’ We’ll see,” he said. “[Matthew Morrison] is fantastic. I’m a big fan of his… I’ll use [Les Mis] as a warm up [for ‘Glee.’]”
