Dear Hugh Jackman,
Ok, I get it… you’re an outrageously talented, actor, singer and dancer, Hollywood, Broadway and TV über-star. You’re an incredibly devoted husband to Deborra-Lee and loving father to Oscar and Ava.
You’re a generous philanthropist — supporting and raising awareness of numerous charities and community projects.

He’s handsome, approachable and talented, so little wonder Hugh Jackman is our most popular celebrity.
But while they’re clearly the ingredients for a successful acting career, they’re don’t necessarily make you the best next face for an Australian tourism campaign.
US travel expert, G Adventures founder, Bruce Poon Tip, however, is adamant that it is. He reckons the all-singing, all-dancing Aussie star is exactly the right candidate to replace Paul Hogan, circa 1980s.

Now the movie Australia was long. Really long. Which might explain why when I saw it at the cinema the guy down the row not only answered two phone calls, but smoked two cigarettes inside the cinema during the flim.
I wish now The Drover had turned his head from the dusty plain, stepped down through the silver screen into the cinema and said to the guy what I was too shy to say: turn it off you selfish idiot! (Just to clarify this Drover dream sequence of mine was all about mobile phone etiquette, nothing else, really.)
Harry Connick Jr, however, would have been as useless as me. Sitting there wishing the battery would go flat but politely soldiering on “in character”.

So Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig are on stage performing A Steady Rain and an audience member’s mobile rings. You can read the story here.
After seeing The Boy From Oz I think Jackman is far more suited to the live environment of the theatre than the silver screen, and this shows his gift for handling the things that happen in live performances.
But the real question is: how does someone still forget to turn off their mobile in a theatre?
