Hugh Jackman hosts 2014 TONY Awards


Hugh Jackman at OscarsTony Awards_2010_OpeningTony Award winner, Academy Award® nominated and Golden Globe-winning actor Hugh Jackman returns to host THE 68TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Sunday, June 8 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. This will be Jackman’s fourth time hosting the Tony Awards. He previously hosted the 57th, 58th, and 59th Annual Tony Awards. Jackman received an Emmy Award for hosting the 58th Annual Tony Awards in the category of Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program.

Jackman made his first major U.S. film appearance as Wolverine in the first installment of the “X-Men” series, a role he reprised in the enormously successful X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006. In May of 2009, Jackman played Wolverine in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which serves as a prequel to the popular series and grossed an outstanding $85 million domestically in its first weekend of release. This last July, 2013, audiences saw Jackman in the popular role once more in the next X-Men chapter, The Wolverine. Jackman reunited with the X-men team for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is set for release in May of 2014. In his most recent role, Jackman appears in Warner Bros’ Prisoners.
