Hugh Jackman on 'The Greatest Showman' and roles that bring out the best in him

Hugh Jackman tapped into his musical-theater roots for his new film The Greatest Showman! The Aussie actor stars alongside Zac Efron and Zendaya in one of the year’s most highly-anticipated movies. The Greatest Showman, which was first introduced to Hugh seven years ago, features all original music by award-winning composers, John Debney, Justin Paul and Joseph Trapanese.

In an interview with HOLA!, the 49-year-old opened up about the most challenging aspects of bringing the musical to life. “It’s the music, getting into song and dance from normal scenes,” Hugh shared. “And having songs that you are hearing for the first time and having them stick in your head and be memorable.” Watch below for more of our interview with the star.
