THE WOLVERINE Hugh Jackman To Receive Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

THE WOLVERINE Hugh Jackman To Receive Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

The Aussie actor, who is now firmly ingrained in popular culture thanks to his portrayals of the feral mutant over the years, is to be honored with a star on the 'Walk Of Fame' in front of Madame Tussauds. Read on for details..

Hugh Jackman will receive his star from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, December 13, 2012. The unveiling will take place at 6931 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, where his wax figure depicting him as Wolverine is on display. "Fans from around the world have been consistently asking when his star will be dedicated," said Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez. "We are happy to say that now is the time! Hugh is on the world's most popular actors and we are exciting that he is joining our Walk of Fame family."

Jackman made his US big screen debut in Bryan Singer's first X-Men as mutant berserker Wolverine, and has gone on to play the character a further 4 times - if you count his very brief cameo in X-Men: First Class that is - and he may just notch that total up to 7 when he appears in James Mangold's The Wolverine, and then possibly back with Singer again on X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Things aren't actually 100% on that, as Jackman has stated that he hasn't officially signed on, nor has he read the script yet.

You can hear Jackman lend his voice to The Easter Bunny in Rise Of The Guardians in theaters now, and catch him in Les Miserables on Christmas Day.

Cool. Cool, cool, cool.

Really? Has Matt Damon gotten one yet? Or Natalie Portman? Or Dicaprio? I'm sure Brad Pitt has to have gotten one by now. Twilight kids got one the other day so I guess it doesn't really mean anything.

I'll be damned if this scene didn't make me feel giddy:

He, at least, deserves it. The man is dedicated as hell!

If the twilight cast can get 1 then i don't see why he can't.

He is at least talented, despite if you like him as Wolverine or not.
WhySoSerious1901 - 12/2/2012, 5:56 PM
awesome news! way to go Hugh!
KryptonitePen - 12/2/2012, 6:34 PM
Did X-men come out before Swordfish? I can;t remember but either way everyone seems to forget that flick. I haven't seen it in ages, just remember Halle boobs and Jackman was good with a computer lol.
SageMode - 12/2/2012, 7:29 PM
Even though im not really a fan of his portray of Wolverine, i can't deny dude is a great actor. Much props to him
SageMode - 12/2/2012, 7:31 PM

X-Men was released in 99'. Swordfish came out 2 years later.
gunner - 12/2/2012, 7:55 PM
last time i heard it was 25 grand to get one ... that was reported by 60 minutes 4 years ago , i like the guy ,but he's hardly a Star actor ( not yet ) !
Sorry !
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 12/2/2012, 8:50 PM
Hmmm that's like 45 min from me. I might have to go. Anyone else near me going? lets meet up and smoke a bowl or blunt.;)

Ror you would be THAT ignorant....then Dicaprio?? How you get jobs ill never know...
Daken - 12/2/2012, 10:29 PM
Wow. You are slow with news. Even slow-German-telly had this news 4 days ago.
Daken - 12/2/2012, 10:30 PM
And it's true that fans get the stars. We collected money over years for this. So if you want "your" star to get a star, do something for it and stop complaining.

Besides, he deserves it. Hugh does more work and especially charity work than some of your brush your teeth every morning!
NorseGod - 12/3/2012, 1:39 AM
So he bought himself a star, what's all the excitement about again?
RaleighAntrobus - 12/3/2012, 2:20 AM
I don't he deserves it to be honest, but they give these things out like candy on Halloween, so...
