NBC's Tamron Hall caught up with Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborah Lee Furness on Sunday, January 26th for an Australia Day event honoring their native country. The 'Wolverine' star chatted about living in New York, saying 'This city is our other home.'
The actor also expressed his excitement on his return to the Great White Way next season in 'The River.' "I'm very excited to get back on Broadway. That'll be some time next season." he shared. "My wife's excited that it's a 90-minute no-interval play so I'll be home early, which means I'll have no excuses about getting up early for the kids!"
It was announced last week that Jackman will star in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming live-action Peter Pan feature for director Joe Wright.
Best known to audiences worldwide for his portrayal of the Wolverine, Jackman most recently wrapped production on "X-Men: Days of Future Past," reprising his role as the conflicted Super Hero for the sixth time in that popular film franchise. In addition to an Oscar® nomination, he won a Golden Globe Award and earned a BAFTA Award nomination for his gripping performance as Jean Valjean in 2012's "LES MISERABLES."
This past fall, Jackman led an all-star cast in the acclaimed dramatic thriller "Prisoners." Also an accomplished stage actor, he received a 2004 Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway musical "The Boy From Oz."
