    Ohmigod! He was absolutely fantastic in The Boy From Oz. Unlike Katie Holmes, he can really act! Wow, can’t wait.

    Hugh is currently rumoured to do several musicals on Broadway, and I’ll gladly go to any of them. He is such an incredible talent!

    And the gorgeousness doesn’t hurt either. :D

    I know he loves to do Broadway and he was fantastic in “Boy from Oz” (I was lucky enough to see it) but selfishly I want him to do a movie musical first. I would love to see that beautiful voice and dancing talent preserved on film.

    He never played Houdini in the movie; The Prestige. Where did you get that from???? That was a character of a different name.
