Hugh Gives Tribute to Gene Kelly

Once again on the set of Les Mis, Hugh Jackman has recorded a video in costume as Jean Valjean — this time, paying tribute to legendary Hollywood icon, Gene Kelly. The video is relatively short, but Hugh gives insight on just how much Gene meant (and still means) to him as a performer. He even includes an anecdote about Singing In The Rain from his youth. (And for those interested: there’s also a peak at the Les Mis movie barricade!) The message was filmed for The Academy’s Centennial Tribute to Gene Kelly, which occurred last night, May 17th.
