In The Spotlight Series: Hugh Jackman

‚Äč
As the Christmas premiere of Tom Hooper's LES MISERABLES motion-picture adaptation approaches, BroadwayWorld brings you images of the film's stars in our 'In The Spotlight' series by acclaimed photographer Walter McBride. Check out photos of Hugh Jackman below!

Hugh Jackman is perhaps best known around the world as Wolverine in the X-Men series, and has starred in films for such directors as Baz Luhrmann (Australia), Woody Allen (Scoop), Christopher Nolan (The Prestige), and Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain). He headlines as Jean Valjean in the eagerly awaited screen version of the musical epic LES MISERABLES from acclaimed director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech), set for release on Christmas Day.

As comfortable on stage as he is on screen, Jackman has seen additional success on Broadway with credits including the musical The Boy From Oz (for which he won Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards), his recent one-man show Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway, and the drama A Steady Rain opposite Daniel Craig. In addition to serving as Tony Awards host for three consecutive years from 2003 - 2005 (his second appearance earned him an Emmy Award, and the final garnered an Emmy nomination), Jackman brought hishoned skills to Hollywood where he hosted the 81st Annual Academy Awards in 2009.
