Hugh Jackman is a man of many talents. An action star as well as a gifted singer and musical performer, Jackman often jumps from one role to another. But he has never quite brought characters like “Les Miserables” lead Jean Valjean together with his “X-Men” role, Wolverine.
All that changes here.
When a guest for the BBC Radio 1’s “The Matt Edmondson Show,” Jackman put on a live performance of Valjean’s stirring “Who Am I” number from “Les Miserables.” Except this time, the actor gave the tune a Wolverine twist.
The result is “Wolverine: The Musical.” Alas, no matter how in-shape for the “X-Men” role Jackman is, it’s hard to hit some of those notes early in the morning.
