HUGH JACKMAN (The Drover) made his first major U.S. film appearance as Wolverine in the first installment of the "X-Men” trilogy, a role he reprised in "X2” and "X-Men: The Last Stand.”

Jackman has also starred in Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain,” Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige” and Woody Allen's "Scoop.” In addition, he voiced characters in the animated features "Happy Feet” and "Flushed Away.” Other leading roles include "Someone Like You,” "Swordfish,” "Van Helsing” and "Kate and Leopold,” for which he received a 2002 Golden Globe nomination.

For his portrayal of the 1970s singer-songwriter Peter Allen in the Broadway musical "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 (for which he received an Olivier Award nomination), "Sunset Boulevard” (which garnered him an MO Award, Australia's equivalent of the Tony) and Disney's "Beauty and the Beast” (for which he received another MO Award nomination).

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

Most recently, Jackman produced and starred in the thriller "Deception” with Ewan McGregor and Michelle Williams, the first feature production from SEED, the company he founded with John Palermo and Deborah-Lee Furness.

SEED is currently in post-production on "X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” an action thriller featuring Jackman's character from the "X-Men” series, which is slated for release in 2009.
