Hugh Jackman

Eddie the Eagle review

Taron Egerton flies in this comedic, partly fictionalised biopic of the unlikely ski jumping star.

James Mottram, The List, 24th March 2016

Last episode in the current run of Ross's chatshow. As is often the case, it's a thinly veiled plug for an upcoming movie, in this case the imminent Eddie The Eagle. Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman both appear, just in case we hadn't quite got the message from their earlier encounter with Ant & Dec. Plugging another new film - an adaptation of JG Ballard's High-Rise - is Luke Evans. Comedian Shazia Mirza is also on the bill, and there's music from Primal Scream, touting their hilariously titled new album, Chaosmosis.

Radio Times review

Will Smith returns to the scene of two great triumphs: that time he spontaneously did the rap from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and that time he spontaneously did it again. What could rack up 30 million YouTube hits now? The star is on the sofa alongside Margot Robbie, so for at least some of the programme he'll have to sit still and discuss their new movie, the heist-romance Focus. They're joined by Hugh Jackman, who recently confessed that his years in Hollywood meant he had to re-learn Australian dialect for his latest film, Chappie.

Completing the line-up is Noel Gallagher. He's a fantastic chat-show guest, so let's hope he's not there solely to sing a song from his upcoming Chasing Yesterday LP.

Radio Times review

There's a trio of mutant superheroes in the studio as the stars of X-Men: Days of Future Past (Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) take their place on Graham's sofa.

They've all been on the show before but, judging by an online Q&A with them, when they're together there's a lot of laughter, back-slapping and fooling around. Plus the occasional send-up of their rather theatrical co-stars, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen.

Bringing a little femininity to proceedings is Eurovision hopeful Molly, who performs Children of the Universe.

Hugh Jackman to appear in TV show The Kumars

Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman is due to appear in the comedy The Kumars at No. 42B.

Chi Chi Izundu, BBC News, 13th May 2013

It's one of the big nights of the year and Graham Norton has a sensational line-up to celebrate. In fact, it has the potential to be such a wild and funny show maybe you should cancel your plans to go out to that warm-wine-and-nibbles party you weren't particularly looking forward to and just stay in instead.

So how about this lot to make your New Year's Eve go with a proper swing: Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman, Billy Crystal, John Bishop and The Great British Bake Off's Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry, with music from Pink. Incredible, isn't it? What will the sainted Mary make of it all? Will Cruise, in town to promote his new film Jack Reacher, be acquainted with soggy bottoms? Can Jackman, starring in the movie version of Les Misérables, make rough-puff pastry? We need to know.

Alison Graham, Radio Times, 31st December 2012

Tom Cruise spills the beans about the people he ignores when they tell him "No" and Billy Crystal reveals who he says "Yes" to.

The pair top the bill in this big-name New Year's Eve line-up - and are also joined Rosamund Pike, who stars alongside Cruise in action thriller Jack Reacher.

Adding to the Hollywood head-count is Hugh Jackman who talks about his latest singing role in the film version of Les Miserables and reveals why he's got Russell Crowe to thank for his career.

And our own Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry tell Graham whether they'll be tempted to appear in a US version of The Great British Bake Off.

Also appearing are John Bishop and Pink who tells why she snared her husband. We know what to get Graham for Christmas next year - a bigger sofa.
