If you missed Hugh Jackman on “60 Minutes” tonight, click on the above image to view the 13-minute long profile. As to be expected from the program, it was great, with highlights from Les Misérables (including stunning clips of Hugh’s take on “Bring Him Home” and “Valjean’s Soliloquy”) and talk of family life. Hugh recently confirmed on an Australian radio interview that his dad was not doing well health-wise, and it shows when he speaks of his father and family. Also, there are some looks at Hugh as a baby and in high school, as they show him visiting Knox Grammar School. There’s a transcript you can read here.
Lastly, there are some additional videos accompanying this “60 Minutes” profile, including “Overtime” (showing more Les Mis clips), Hugh talking about keeping fit, his childhood chores, and how wife Deborra-Lee feels about men and women lusting over her husband. Check out the links below:
Yesterday morning, Hugh Jackman spent some time at the BBC Radio One studios to conduct several interviews, one of which was for “The Radio Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.” You can watch a video excerpt above or head to BBC Radio’s website for the full thing (Hugh comes on just after 2:08). In the interview, Hugh praises Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried for braving the cold London premiere for Les Misérables — and Amanda’s “cheeky” sense of humor. And remember when pictures of Hugh doing Gangnam Style popped up? He elaborates on that story, and who he used to visit every Monday while shooting The Wolverine.
Earlier this morning, Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, and Eddie Redmayne sat down for a live Facebook chat organized by the UK Les Misérables page. It’s a hysterical interview – you can clearly see the camaraderie between the three co-stars – and they touch upon the film and their experience with musicals. (At one point, Amanda says that producer Cameron Mackintosh wants to do a concert with the movie cast!) The video plays on loop, so you may have to wait a while to see it start from the beginning.
There are four behind-the-scene videos uploaded by the official Les Misérables YouTube which feature great insight into the production of the film. The above video is a featurette on the new song written exclusively for Hugh Jackman for the movie-musical adaptation of the popular musical. You get a great general feel for the song and how Hugh sings it (which is just beautiful).
There are also videos for Production Design, Costume Design, and Hair & Make Up, each showing a lot of previously unseen footage from the film: notably, clips of “Master of the House” and “Lovely Ladies.” There’s really too much information to list individually (especially all the looks at Hugh’s Valjean spanning over the years), so I highly recommend watching them. You can view the other three below.
Earlier this evening, December 5th, Les Misérables held its world premiere in London, England. Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, Isabelle Allen, and Daniel Huttlestone were among some of the cast members to attend — along with many of the “barricade boys” playing revolutionary students in the film. The current Les Mis West End cast was also there. Other celebrities in attendance included Idris Elba, Gillian Anderson, Stephen Fry, Rosamund Pike, Matthew Morrison, Ellie Goulding, and Isla Fisher.
There are exactly 200 pictures of Hugh from the premiere in the gallery, with possibly more to come. You can also check out some videos from the event below, which I’ll be adding as they come in. Enjoy!
In this interview with MTV, Hugh Jackman confirms that he he has been in talks to join X-Men: Days of Future Past… but don’t expect any spoilers. When prodded for more details on the upcoming production – and Hugh’s seventh run as Wolverine on screen – he refuses to answer. Prodded again, and he jokes that the movie is actually all about his character. It’s a short but cute video, with typical Hugh humor.
