Obviously I love Hugh Jackman. As someone with ears, eyes and a heart it’s impossible not to fall head over heels for the strapping Australian actor. For years we’ve watched him act, sing and dance his way through life. But not until today did I know that he was funny. Of course, I shouldn’t be surprised. He would be the kind of guy who’s good at everything. From acting to origami to poetry to setting the table correctly to texting people in a way that leaves no room as to whether he’s trying to be passive aggressive with a monosyllabic answer.
With Les Miserables coming out in just a few days, he’s been promoting it all over the place. But this video isn’t a Les Mis video. No this video’s something far more magical and far more enchanting.
In this video, he pitches a phenomenal movie to MTV’s Josh Horowitz. Do you know Josh Horowitz? He’s that guy from MTV who always gets to interview celebrities in cool ways. Like no one makes him asks stupid questions like, “Did you enjoy your castmates?” or “would you recommend we see your movie?” No, he always asks fun questions during his interviews, so they’re some of the few that I actually enjoy watching.
Well Hugh Jackman completely agrees, because he offers to star in a movie about Josh — a much grittier, angrier, fatter, uglier Josh. I won’t spoil the video for you, but I do highly suggest that you watch it. It’s probably the funniest thing you’ll see today. Unless you’re spending the day with Hugh Jackman, then who knows what hilarity will ensue.
