Entertaining, an introduction to an interesting actor
I wasn't that familiar with Hugh Jackman before I watched this interview. Now, I wouldn't say I'm a fan so much as to say I have a great deal of respect for the artistry and talent and hard word of this man. Perhaps I only imagined it, but he seemed more transparent than most.
I wish I could find out how Mr. Jackman learned to play Leopold in "Kate & Leopold." I heard him talk about the part on this Actor's Studio interview on Bravo before I saw it. When I saw it, I was blown away by the strange stillness of that character, the other-centeredness that is so uncharacteristic of . . . well, I don't know about others . . . uncharacteristic of me. I wondered who Mr. Jackman studied etiquette with for this role. Maybe they've written a book or something.
