A Life in Pictures: Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman
Season 7  |  Episode 3  |  Smooth/Arts  |  January 23, 2020

There's something about Hugh Jackman that makes you suspect he would have been a success on the big screen no matter which cinematic era he was born into. His lithe physicality and fine comic timing would have served him well in the silent era; his good looks and debonair charm would have fit right in with the Douglas Fairbanks and Cary Grants of classical Hollywood; his roguish charisma and natural compassion would not have gone amiss in the gritty realism of the 60s and 70s; and there's no doubting he has the muscles to have gone toe-to-toe with the Arnies, Slys and Jean-Claudes of the 80s and 90s.
