Jackman: The Next Mo’Nique?


Vulture hero Hugh Jackman may not be returning as host for Sunday's Academy Awards, but it sounds like he wants a ticket to next year's ceremony. Best Director nominee Lee Daniels tells USA Today his Precious follow-up will be civil-rights drama Selma, about the 1965 marches from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and he's got at least one star lined up: "I have to really start casting the movie because we're shooting it soon," says Daniels. "The only person I've nailed in for sure is Hugh Jackman." [USA Today via Playlist]
