    Apart from acting- which is obviously what people know Hugh Jackman for- he is also a singer, dancer, and has part taken in a lot of musicals. As a matter of fact, Jackman’s first taste of Professional acting was on stage inside Melbourne’s musical scene. When he is not on stage or doing anything that is related to entertainment, Jackman loves to entertain himself and he does this by playing the piano, guitar, golf, and also loves to windsurf.

    He is such an inspiration for people that need motivation That is why he is perfect for this role. To be honest, after all of the awards he has won, he should be getting Best Actor at the Academy Awards every single year! look at his the amount of amazing product quality production he has been in He is so much more than wolverine. Though he has his other sides as well.

    Maybe I am just in love with him. He would be the ideal coach to have. Eddie the Eagle is amazing, and only had his trainer. No one else believed in his poor soul. Both of the characters/actors are gentlemen and scholars.
