Hugh Jackman and 'Wolverine' the musical?

See also

Hugh Jackman is known for being a big action movie star, with the sensitive musical theatre side. Besides being one of the biggest and baddest superheroes as Wolverine in the "X-Men" movies, Jackman has racked up kudos for his musical performances, both in London and the United States. He played Curly in a London West End production of "Oklahoma" which earned him an Olivier Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. He won a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award, for his portrayal of Peter Allen in the 2004 musical "The Boy from Oz." Most recently he portrayed Jean Valjean in the movie version of "Les Miserables" which won him Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.

So is there a chance for a combination of his best known roles and making "Wolverine: The Musical"? Probably not, but here is a quick video of Hugh on an early radio program showing people how good it would be if they actually did make this musical.
