Hugh Jackman: I'm Shocked I'm Still Playing Wolverine!

Hugh Jackman chats with his son Oscar, 13, as the two head to his school on Thursday (May 23) in New York City.

The 44-year-old actor recently chatted with CNN about his upcoming movie The Wolverine, in theaters July 26.

“He’s back, and I couldn’t be happier,” Hugh said during the interview about the return of his beloved character. “I never in a million years would’ve thought [that] I’d still be playing this character [12 years later]. It kind of really is shocking to me, but at the same time, it’s such an instant gratitude, because I love this character.”
