Hugh Jackman & Daniel Craig: 'Steady Rain' Artwork!

Hugh Jackman & Daniel Craig: 'Steady Rain' Artwork!

Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig‘s faces are fused together in this exclusive artwork for new play A Steady Rain.

The pair gave their first preview performance last night (September 9) for friends and family at New York City’s Gerald Schoenfeld theater. Deborra-Lee Furness was spotted cheering on her husband in the audience but Daniel‘s girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell seemed to be M.I.A. After the show, Daniel and Hugh signed autographs and took pictures with fans outside the stage door.

JustJared.com was lucky enough to snag tickets to last night’s two-man show, about two Chicago cops whose lifelong friendship is put to the test when they become involved in a domestic dispute.

The stage was simple: two actors, two chairs, two light fixtures hanging above them, and a black backdrop. There was no trace of James Bond under Daniel‘s mustache and completely convincing Chicago accent. And Hugh gave an extremely emotional performance while delivering his heart-wrenching tale. (He also delivered plenty of eye candy in his skin-tight polo. Daniel was dressed in a suit the entire time.)

Check out a great behind-the-scenes look of the play at USAToday.com. It’s a great read!

    bond looks like a pervert.

  • From BCN

    Day by day, Mr Jackman becomes better.
    Good luck.

  • KC

    I love that Bond is first in billing over X-Man. It’s because he is the better actor between the 2 and I think Hugh knew that. I just don’t like the pervert-look but that’s how Daniel is, he transforms himself as an actor. I’ve seen his past movies and some of them you cannot tell that it was him. OMG. I can’t wait to see him live and I hope that the fugly wife is not there to ruin the night!

  • Ann

    Cool! Hugh is awesome!

  • ra

    I’m very anxious to see this show. Not familiar with Craig’s work, but I already know how compelling Hugh is on stage. Hurry up November! And to Hugh and Daniel for the official start of previews tonight – break a leg!

  • Yes

    The gonk M.I.A. Hooray!!! DC is looking better and better!!

  • http://bwaygal hjfan

    The billing is in alphabetical order, which is the way it’s usually done on Broadway when there’s more than one huge star.

  • No competition please

    KC — this is not a competition for who is the better actor. Both are trained actors with stage experience and equal to the task. “Bond” got first biling because C(raig) comes before J(ackman) in the alphabet. Simple as that. Hugh already has an avid Broadway following, but gentleman that he is, he will gladly share the spotlight with Daniel.

  • British

    Daniel Craig quite clearly signed about 3 autographs and then left…good on Hugh for sticking around the take some pictures and sign as much as he could.

  • herpy hermy

    No gonk? whatever happened?

  • Snooty

    Looks like Hugh did most of the interacting with the fans. DC does not seem to like any interaction with fans-Hugh is always kind and giving to his fans. I think Hugh really appreciates what he has and is enjoying every moment-his wife also seems like a kind person.

  • where’s satsuki?

    Satsuki MIA?

    Oh dear. Something serious would have happened to make her stay away!
    Maybe Daniel asked his friends and family to stay away until it officially opens due to nerves?

    Any ideas?

  • stressed

    I think Daniel is going to be feeling very stressed and strung out about this play until it officially opens and he reads the first good review!!

  • dtd

    I bet Satsuki was there and JJ is trying to stir up something.
    I’m sure DtD will let us know if she was.

  • re: 13

    I think Daniel is going to be feeling very stressed and strung out about this play until it officially opens and he reads the first good review!!
    =======================================================

    In answer to that and #12′s post, does that mean that Satsuki makes him nervous?
    I mean this is the first time he’s done a play while being with her.
    I wonder if any of his family were there?
    Have a feeling Daniel might not want them there until the official reviews come in.

    Can see his point.

  • MIA

    You see, when someone like the Gonk follows Daniel literally everywhere, when she doesn’t turn up it makes news.

    Terrible state of affairs.

    Personally I think Daniel might have his way of dealing with stage work and that is not to have family members turn up until it’s reviewed maybe?

    Each actor has their quirks. Maybe this is his?

    I also think JJ is favoring Hugh here with more positive smiling pictures of him with fans.
    Daniel looks downright frightened.

  • Gulp

    Daniel looks soooooo hot. I am so jealous not to be able to see this play.

  • Rock on

    Go Daniel – rock Broadway like your real fans know that you can!!

  • to British

    Daniel Craig quite clearly signed about 3 autographs and then left…good on Hugh for sticking around the take some pictures and sign as much as he could.

    ====================================================

    Photo assumption and unfair of JJ to print more pics of Hugh to give that impression.
    Although I have not a clue if he signed three or not. Highly unlikely.
    You can see the adrenaline pumping in Daniel’s face though.
    As for Satsuki not being there, well we know she’s around so I’m presuming it was a “thespian” decision on Daniel’s part not a private one?

  • to MIA

    JJ did not take the photos, he posted the photos that are available from the agencies so he is not showing favoritism. Hugh is gregarious and friendly to the public but Daniel should not be criticized if he is not as comfortable greeting the public. Hugh also knew what to expect at the stage door while perhaps Daniel did not – or maybe Daniel had other plans after the show and needed to rush off. I’m not even a fan of Daniel – far from it – but criticizing one of them in order to show the other is “better” is just immature.

  • to 20

    Well going on that, then the paps did not take many of Daniel then as JJ surely would have bought them?
    Also that really means that Satsuki might have been there but the paps were NOT allowed to take pics of her maybe?
    Maybe she was with his family/daughter?

    I cannot see Satsuki missing this.

  • to all

    it very sad to see the Daniel fans and Hugh fans to be that nasty to each other. Read the usatoday article and you can see that Daniel resepects Hugh and vice versa. I’m a Dniel fan, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy Hugh on stage, too.

  • http://Sexy sharyllee

    I will see only Hamlet with Jude Law.. I cant wait to see JUDE!! love him..

  • to 21

    maybe daniel doesn’t want her to show the wedding band. the other pictures of them walking across the road. he so maybe he doesnt want the unwarranted attention diverted off the play?
    i mean she is not going to take the band off to appease his fans.

  • jazz

    No desire to see this play although I quite like Hugh Jackmann.

  • to 20

    not as comfortable greeting the public
    ======================================================

    Pull the other one, it’s got bells on.

    He seems at home doing it when he has to whore a film out. Look at the QoS promo circuit for that!
    Again though the Bond circuit he has to be in tip tip gentlemanly shape for that. Part of contract or he’ll be sued.

    Now he’s wanting to become a appear like a serious thespian. Moody and “unattainable”.
    God these actors. *rolls eyes*.

  • gonkless

    maybe he wanted to rush home to satsuki? maybe she’s ill.
    too much free food and booze.

  • kprocks89

    thanks for the review. ahh, i’m DYING to see it!

  • sats
  • to where’s satsuki

    i would think that she was there in the theatre. but she was probably keeping a low profile and was watching from where she could not been by anyone.

  • PR U turn for satsuki

    I think Ms Mitchell is going to remain a low profile during this play due to overexposure before, “wedding band” backlash and privacy issues.
    Maybe when she doesn’t appear the marriage issue isn’t brought up or just maybe she is stepping back as she is aware of some of his fan’s intense dislike for her?
    Maybe she is tired of being in the “front line” on the red carpet?
    Could this be a PR thing? New vamping of her image?

  • to 30

    she was not there at all. just heard. no show.

  • guinness-catch up!

    Sats had to have been there. What does d to d say? She had a private entrance? I have to go review the reviews…..BUT cheers you 2….have fun and good luck again tonight.

  • re: 30

    i would think that she was there in the theatre. but she was probably keeping a low profile and was watching from where she could not been by anyone.
    ====================================================

    I’m sorry, why wasn’t she visibly in the audience like Debra “cheering on” Daniel?
    Is sitting in the audience like the rest of them too much for or beneath her?
    Strange behavior from Ms Diva. Totally unlike her.
    Methinks she was told to stay away.

  • to 32 and 33

    she was not there at all. just heard. no show.

    =====================================================
    re: 32
    Really?
    Interesting info.
    Had to be because of publicity and whatnot.
    I bet she will be there soon enough though.
    Can’t keep a publicity whore gonk down for too long.

    re: 33
    She had a private entrance?
    =====================================================

    No I think Daniel has one with Hugh.
    :)

  • guinness-piss off

    I absolutely want to give Dan the spot light here because it is his thread…but if SHE she wasn’t there, i would like to give her the benefit of the doubt. but if she was not there she should not be with him. or she should be “let go” from her current position of whatever she does for him.

    He has the perrogative to greet and not greet and piss people off. That is what I like about him…yeah, and i will be pissed if he doesnt come out when i am there. and that is a good point…last night was for the people who already know “them”… people in the industry. so why would he think they want his autograph? He will be there for the fans tonight.

    jj stinnks. the usa today is OLD NEWS for us here–it was posted by a person on your thread–you can at least mention that. and what was hugh’s accent like? be nice to DAn tonight—he has the most watchers here…don’t alienate me!!

  • guinness-to #1 and #35

    Dan is NOT a pervert–he LOOKS the part! and you are an idiot #35.

  • Mendel

    How exciting! The previews have now started – hurray!

    I’m going by what JJ says, until I read different somewhere else. So:

    “Deborra-Lee Furness was spotted cheering on her husband in the audience but Daniel’s girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell seemed to be M.I.A. ”

    Means what it says on the tin – Deborra there, Sats not there (or JJ didn’t see her, but it seems that unless she was in hiding in a private box or something, she wasn’t there)

    “After the show, Daniel and Hugh signed autographs and took pictures with fans outside the stage door.”

    Both signed autographs, but maybe the photographer just had a thing for Hugh ;) He is the more outgoing one of the two. But it doesn’t sound like Dan didn’t pull his weight here.

    “There was no trace of James Bond under Daniel’s mustache and completely convincing Chicago accent.”

    Excellent! I always thought this was the most tricky bit for Dan, to get the accent right.

    “And Hugh gave an extremely emotional performance”

    Brilliant.

    Guinness and others here, sounds like you are in for a treat!!!

  • to 36

    The people outside were not invited. They were ‘regular” fans and it was packed by all accounts.

    I have a feeling Hugh will always be shown in a better light.

    Honestly, I prefer it when she does stay away. maybe she has got the message once and for all which is:
    “It’s not about you Satsuki, it’s about Daniel. Stay away or stand in the shadows”.

  • Mendel
  • re sats

    She could have been in the private boxes with his family and daughter then left unobtrusively although how the paps missed them is beyond me.

    I’m sure DtD or someone will pick a picture of her up to show she was not shirking her “marital” and “job” duty.
    I’m just waiting for it.

    One thing though: If JJ spotted Deborah, which means Deborah was sitting in a visible place, then why didn’t Satsuki sit with her or be just as visible? I mean, Satsuki is a press w*hore.
    I can imagine she was sitting biting her nail varnish off like at FOAF. Totally not interested.

  • gonkless

    i think jj just loves starting c*rap. although they do mention gonk as girlfriend not wife. that’s a start anyway.
    but by saying she wasnt there they know then a discussion such as this will start.

  • guinness-someone do this

    “I would be happy to see this production again with an audience of real men in blue, just to take the temperature in the room.”~ Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

    this was excerpted from one of the articles already posted,,,and I also read somewhere when Chicago was showing this play that someone asked the real cops if it were true to form…they said moreso than anything they see on tv. so, someone needs to interview a NYC officer to see what they say about it…ask them to review the play. I cant wait!!!! dih–did you get your binoculars yet?

  • sats!!

    http://www.shubertorganization.com/images/theatres/schoenfeld/theatre_5.jpg

    She was there.
    Someone saw her leave straight after the curtain.

  • guinness-new?
  • guinness-#44

    oooo, preetty. i won’t believe it until i see proof she was there. and it is about him, but not to sit and scmooze with Hugh’s wife….not a good professional move whatever she is!! Mendel! yes, the accent…but he has shown a nack for that in the past…but i was still confident to hear he pulled it!! I am going to be sad not to hear the sexy british accent…but many more things will make up for that.

    I had a dream last night he signed my cap. I switched to a baseball cap rather than a t-shirt…it will probably change to something else by the time I get to see him…..and the art work is awesome!! I get to have a playbill with them on the front.. I love it. too excited!!! I cant find any news on anything…. but tomorrow hopefully more.

  • jess

    How exciting to get JJ’s report of this. Glad to hear Daniel has really got his accent down for this. Accents have always been a bit of a sticking point for him. Break a leg Daniel for the official beginning of previews tonight!

    As far as the gf being MIA, well, I too am going to go by what JJ says. To come up with all these other “sightings” and theories about her being there makes as much sense as the magic bullet theory. Since there were no official photo ops at this dress rehearsal, she wasn’t on “duty” was she, so no need for her to be there. They just didn’t know our gossipy host JJ would be there! LOL

  • to jess

    I assume she will be there tonight then?

    I hope she just stays away although last night was for the family and friends.

    It’s so more refreshing for her to stay away unless she sits in his dressing room and waits and listens to his performance off stage.

  • patricia

    Love Hugh¡Good Luck in this new adventure.I am pretty sure he is going to be fantastic¡
    Good luck for Daniel, too.

  • to#32-gf went to movies? shop?

    Girlfriend probably went to the movies and then went out drinking and clubbing , or perhaps a shopping spree, while Daniel and Hugh performed last night.
    Last nights’ show was for for family and friends was a very important dress rehearsal and she was not there.
    Can she not fall into either category (family? …friend?) for Daniel now?
    Geez I hope they didn’t fight and cause even more stress for Daniel. That would be horrible if they had a blowout argument right before the evening performance.
    I am very surprised as well she decided not to show, like the above poster #32 stated.
    Perhaps she either did not want to go or she was asked not to go? And then maybe she decided to take in the latest Disney movie and then go shopping or drinking after?
    Perhaps she has been too critical of Daniel of late and he was nervous enough before ‘curtain up’…so to save his nerves, she was asked to not come???
