Hugh Jackman is Shrek Sexy

Hugh Jackman is Shrek Sexy

Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman sports some fun ogre equipage — Shrek ears! — while posing backstage with Brian d’Arcy James at Broadway’s Shrek: The Musical at The Broadway Theatre on Saturday (December 20) in New York City.

Some of the other genius cast members are also pictured below: Sutton Foster in the purple (Princess Fiona), Christopher Sieber in the red shirt (Lord Farquaad) and John Tartaglia in the hat (Pinocchio, Magic Mirror, Dragon Puppeteer).

Little known fact via WP: To prevent overheating, the show’s costumers tuck ice packets into pockets of the long underwear James wears under his padded [Shrek] suit. Even so, he is soaked with sweat by the end of each performance.

    Don’t see any kids, but do see a lot of gay out actors….and one in the closet.

  • gerard Vandenberg

    WOW, these suckers look almost identical!!

  • Jennifer

    Jesus, Hugh Jackman is not gay!! Please stop insinuating that he is. Like someone previously mentioned, he most likely took his children to see the play and was asked backstage.

    Just because a man goes to Broadway doesn’t mean he’s gay!!
