Hugh Jackman: Risks Were Taken During Shooting of "Les Miserables"
(LOS ANGELES) -- After receiving an honorary Tony Award on Sunday, Hugh Jackman will make an appearance later this year in a movie based on a popular musical.
Jackman stars in the big-screen adaptation of Les Miserables, which opens Dec. 14. He says the crew took some chances during the making of the film.
"We're doing something that's never been done before, everything's sung live, it makes it very exciting 'cause every day at work is like an opening night....[A]lso that means you have to be on your game for 10 hours, that's a lot of singing," the actor says.
Jackman is pleased with the positive feedback for the recently-released teaser trailer of the film, saying he senses a "general excitement."
