Watch: Hugh Jackman Botch His Audition For Harlem Village Academies In Hilarious New Viral Video

Who doesn’t love Hugh Jackman? Of course, he’s made his fair share of shitty movies (“Kate & Leopold,” “Van Helsing,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine“), but there’s something inherently likable and undeniably charming about the actor so that, even when the film is bad, Jackman’s never less than totally committed, normally proving the best thing in the movie. And from “X-Men” to “The Fountain” and “The Prestige,” he’s given plenty of good performances as well, not least his hosting of the Oscars, a recent high-water mark for the show.

And as of today, we might love him a little bit more. Jackman’s starred in a new College Humor viral video in support of Harlem Village Academies, the groundbreaking NYC school that says ‘Teachers are Superstars’ on which he serves on the board for, and playing himself, the star is very, very funny, auditioning for a job at the school with a monologue from “Shrek,” push-ups, and a rendition of Cee-Lo Green‘s “Fuck You.” And it’s all for a good cause too. Watch the clip below, and you can find out more about Harlem Village Academies here.

I remember you that Kate & Leopold, was nominated for 3 Golden Globe: Best Actor, Best Director, Best Song and won the award for the song 'Until'.
Neither Van Helsing nor The origins Wolverine have won Razzie Awards and both films were blockbusters throughout the world.
But if you want enjoy 100% of his multiple talents, should see him live on stage. Jackman is one of the best actors of his generation, the only one who can keep up with the great actors of Hollywood's golden era. Nobody, except him, nowadays is able to do everything, from acting to singing to dancing. Too bad we live sickening times, an artist of that level still so underestimated and reduced to something like: "Oh, yes, the dude shirtless that is Wolverine." Nope, wrong, Hugh Jackman is much more.


So many people are talking about Daniel Day Lewis , Bill Murray , or John Hawkes being the top choice to win the Oscar for Best Actor. But, I really believe it will be Hugh Jackman . Jackman is the greatest male triple threat talent in Hollywood . Day Lewis, Hawkes, and Murray are not triple threat talents . Hugh's full display of his many gifts in " Les Miserables," will set him apart from the rest of the pack of Best Actor nominees.
