Hugh Jackman to 'STAR' Again on Broadway?

As rumored a number of months ago by the New York Post's Michael Riedel, it looks like Hugh Jackman might indeed be planning to make his return to both New York City and the Broadway stage. Over the years the film and stage superstar rented various homes for he and his family, until now...could this mean he will tread the boards again in the whispered about 'A Star Is Born' musical?

The "Boy From Oz" has decided to set up shop overseas for a while, after purchasing a reported multi-million Manhattan apartment reports the Perth Now website "Perth Confidential".

A spokeswoman for the Australia star confirmed to the website that he had bought the stunning apartment in one of New York's most sought after buildings, the Meier Towers.

Having leased a unit in the West Village area before, Jackman can now officially call Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker, supermodel Gisele Bundchen and actress Liv Tyler his neighbors in the trendy Manhattan suburb states the Aussie website.

Currently renting a house in Woollahra, Perth Confidential understands the X-Men Origins actor plans to move his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and children Oscar and Ava to the Big Apple next year to start work on the new Broadway musical 'A Star Is Born'.

However, Jackman has not officially announced plans to play the main role of Norman Maine in the stage show adaptation of the classic 1937 film.

The multi-talented Jackman won an Emmy for hosting the 2004 Tony Awards ceremony. However, he is probably best known to Broadway audiences for his role in The Boy From Oz. He was also nominated for the 1998 Olivier for Best Actor in a Musical for his Curly in the Royal National Theatre's Oklahoma! A musical theatre veteran back in Australia, he played Joe Gillis in the 1996 production of Sunset Boulevard in Melbourne, and Gaston in 1995's Beauty and the Beast.  Film credits include The Fountain, The Prestige, Scoop, the X-Men films, and Someone Like You.
