Creator / Hugh Jackman

"As an actor, you have many tools - your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don't say is more important than what you say. That's not so much the case for stage."

Hugh Michael Jackman (born 12 October 1968) is an Australian actor, producer, and general all-round heartthrob, who first gained worldwide attention as Curley in the West End's revival of Oklahoma!. He did not become a household name until he was cast as James "Logan" Howlett / Wolverine in the X-Men Film Series, a role he played 9 times in total as of 2017, holding the record of appearances of the same actor in a comic book movie 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 & 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 Miserables in 2012. He's also a very well-regarded awards show host, having hosted the Tony Awards four times and the Academy Awards once (and winning an Emmy for his second gig at the Tonys).

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.
