THE FOUNTAIN

HUGH JACKMAN (Tomas, Tommy, Tom Creo), a native of Australia, made his first major U.S. film appearance as Wolverine in 2000's "X-Men,” which marked the first installment of the blockbuster franchise. He has since reprised the role in "X2” and "X- Men: The Last Stand.” In addition, Jackman earned a Golden Globe Award nomination for his performance in the romantic comedy drama "Kate & Leopold,” opposite Meg Ryan.

Jackman most recently starred with Scarlett Johansson in Woody Allen's comedy "Scoop.” His additional film credits include the title role in "Van Helsing”; the thriller "Swordfish,” with John Travolta and Halle Berry; and the romantic comedy "Someone Like You,” opposite Ashley Judd. In addition to "The Fountain,” Jackman has three more films due out in 2006. He next stars in Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige,” and will also be heard in the animated features "Flushed Away” and "Happy Feet.”

An award-winning stage actor, Jackman was honored with the 2004 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of singer-songwriter Peter Allen in the Broadway hit "The Boy from Oz.” His work in that show also brought him Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Theatre World Awards. His previous theatre credits include: "Carousel,” at Carnegie Hall; "Oklahoma!,” at the National Theater in London, for which he received an Olivier Award nomination; "Sunset Boulevard,” for which he won a ‘MO' Award (Australia's equivalent of a Tony); and Disney's "Beauty and the Beast,” for which he also received a ‘MO' Award nomination.

Jackman began his career in Australia in the independent films "Paperback Hero” and "Erskineville Kings.” For his performance in the latter, he won the Film Critics Circle of Australia's Best Actor Award and earned a nomination for the Australian Film Institute's Best Actor Award. In 1999, he was named Australian Star of the Year at the Australian Movie Convention.
