[Warning: Lao lao groupie alert]
I used to bemoan the fact that they don’t make men like Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire anymore – male performers who could prance around and carry a tune and act without the use of swinging chandeliers or collapsing helicopters or dressing up as an animal/puppet to get attention on stage (and be just as enigmatic on screen).
I take my words back (albeit a little late). They both have reincarnated and returned in the form of one man – Hugh Jackman. Now does this Aussie dag get Broadway or what. In this opening act of the 2004 Tony Awards ceremony, you can also check out his impossibly yoga-like high kicks to “One Night Only”. Hubba.
He’s also Wolverine for some blokey credibility.
