Hugh Jackman To Star as P.T. Barnum in ‘Showman’

Hugh Jackman really loves to sing and dance, as we saw in his Oscar performance earlier this year.

Now, Jackman is gearing up for more!

The actor will be portraying American showman P.T. Barnum in “The Greatest Showman on Earth,” an original contemporary musical to be scripted by Sex and the City producer Jenny Bicks.

According to Variety, the Wolverine star will play the man with a penchant for hoaxing a gullible public as he creates the three-ring circus that made him famous. The musical also focuses on his infatuation with the so-called Swedish Nightingale, singer Jenny Lind.

And who will play the character of Lind? The role is being scripted for Anne Hathaway, who has already teamed with Jackman before, in this year’s Oscars number.
