Hugh Jackman Channels Abe Lincoln on “Letterman”
Hugh Jackman is well aware that Daniel Day-Lewis is the odds on favorite to snag the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln at this Sunday’s Academy Awards. With that in mind, Hugh decided to perhaps confuse Academy voters by showing up as “Honest Abe” on the David Letterman show last night.
Hugh is also a “Best Actor” nominee for his role in “Les Miserables” but if the buzz is correct he is, at best, a long shot. The Academy Awards will be televised on ABC Sunday night starting at 8:30.
