Hugh Jackman Talks Wolverine Musical
Warning: contains no serious news

Anyone lucky enough to gave already watched Tom Hooper's adaptation of musical of musicals Les Misérables may have already noticed a similarity between Valjean and Javert's relationship and Wolverine and Sabretooth's relationship in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Here in the following interview snippet, Hugh Jackman offers his own thoughts on the two pairings' parallels.

As well as all that, the rest of the admittedly somewhat frivolous clip sees Jackman refusing to deny that Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past may contain musical moments - even warbling out a sample to whet our appetites. It appears here in a news story format because its contents couldn't fit in Hugh Jackman's Les Misérables video interview proper, despite Huge Action's handsome face, charm and crooning capabilties.

So if you're a Jackman fan, or a Les Misérables fan, or just a fan of actors singing in video interviews, take a look at the clip below, and when you're done with that, head over to the main Les Mis interview page to see for an extended Jackman interview, as well as Tom Hooper talking possible intervals, earpieces and editing nightmares, not to mention Eddie Redmayne deciding on camera who'd pick in real life: Cosette or Éponine. Warning: he's very frank...

 

Les Misérables is already out in the US, with British cinemagoers getting their chance to hear Hugh sing once again on January 11.
