Jackman received a 2012 special Tony Award for his contributions to Broadway and appeared on the Great White Way last season in Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway. He also won a Tony Award for The Boy From Oz., and his other stage credits include A Steady Rain, Oklahoma!, and Sunset Boulevard. As previously announced, Jackman is slated to return to Broadway during the 2013-2014 season in the musical Houdini.
His numerous film credits include X-Men: Wolverine and Australia, and he will next be seen on screen starring as Jean Valjean in the movie adaptation of the musical Les Miserables.
