The Australian actor is just at home singing and dancing as he is leading an action film, but he’ll always be known as playing Wolverine in the X-Men franchise. Having debuted as the beloved comic-book character in 2000’s X-Men after replacing Dougray Scott, Jackman has since portrayed the Mutant in six further films, and there are plans for him to appear in at least one more. Starting in the theater, Jackman won an Olivier Award for his portrayal in Oklahoma. But, with X-Men, he shot up the Hollywood echelon and he’s since starred in Van Helsing, The Prestige, The Fountain, Real Steel, and Les Miserables, the latter of which he received an Oscar nomination for.
