Award-winning actor Hugh Jackman will return to host the 68th annual Tony Awards, which honors the best of Broadway. It will be the fourth time Jackman will emcee the ceremony on June 8 from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, where it will be broadcast live on the CBS. Jackman also won a Tony award the same year for his role in “The Boy from Oz.” The actor, who was born in Australia, won a Golden Globe in 2013 for best actor in a comedy or musical for the film “Les Miserables.”
We guess that the adage goes, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Jackman is clearly one of the most versatile actors out there and has won the respect and love from both movie goers as well as broadway. That’s an extremely rare combination. While Wolverine might be making the big bucks for Jackman, he’s proven that he can do just about anything. It’s no surprise he was chosen again to host the event. And we wouldn’t be surprised if he hits five times as host.
Congrats to Hugh.
