Creator: Hugh Jackman

An Australian actor, producer, and general all-round heartthrob, Hugh Jackman first gained worldwide attention as Curley in the West End's revival of Oklahoma!, but he did not become a household name until he was cast as Wolverine in the X-Men film franchise. He subsequently won a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway production of The Boy From Oz as Australian singer-songwriter Peter Allen. He has also starred in romances and romantic comedies, including Kate and Leopold (opposite Meg Ryan) and Australia (opposite fellow Aussie and close friend Nicole Kidman). He currently plans to star in a future remake of Carousel, a role he had formerly played on Broadway, and got himself an Academy Award nomination for playing Jean Valjean in the film version of the musical Les MisÚrables (2012).

He is married to Deborra-Lee Furness, who was his co-star on the short-lived Australian drama series Correlli - his first screen appearance. They have two children, both adopted.

Incidentally, he won People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive award in 2008.

Apparently has a Sitcom Arch-Nemesis in Neil Patrick Harris as seen in this song and dance routine and backed up here.

It should also be noted that he has a reputation for being one of THE nicest celebrities in all of Hollywood. Ask anyone... except Dr. Cox.
