FLUSHED AWAY

Australia native HUGH JACKMAN (Roddy) made his major U.S. film debut as Wolverine in the first installment of the "X-Men” franchise, a role he reprised in "X2” and last summer's "X-Men: The Last Stand.” Other leading roles include the motion pictures "Someone Like You,” "Swordfish,” "Van Helsing,” and "Kate and Leopold,” for which he received a 2002 Golden Globe nomination. He most recently starred in Woody Allen's "Scoop” and will next be seen in the upcoming releases of Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain” and Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige.”

For his portrayal of the 1970s singer-songwriter Peter Allen in "The Boy from Oz,” Jackman received the 2004 Tony Award for Best Actor in a musical as well as Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Theatre World awards.  Previous theater credits include "Carousel” at Carnegie Hall, "Oklahoma!” at the National Theater in London (Olivier Award nomination), "Sunset Boulevard” (MO Award – Australia's Tony Award) and Disney's "Beauty and the Beast” (MO Award nomination).

Jackman's career began in Australia in the independent films "Paperback Hero” and "Erskineville Kings” (Australian Film Critics' Circle Best Actor award and The Australian Film Institute Best Actor nomination). In 1999, he was named Australian Star of the Year at the Australian Movie Convention.
