Hugh Jackman & Family: Music Time In NYC

Hugh Jackman & Family: Music Time In NYC

Hugh Jackman and his family were seen together in New York City on Friday (February 3).

The actor carried a guitar case while walking with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their 6-year-old daughter Ava.

Jackman will be playing Jean Valjean in the film version of the musical Les Misérables. He says he’ll be singing live during his scenes.

He explained, “Yes, I believe we are going to be singing live. We will obviously have to do a safety prerecord, because when you’re singing you’ve got to have all the music in your ear, and I’m guessing also for quality of sound for the soundtrack. And sometimes when you film there are noises — smoke machines, things like that — where the actual sound on set may not be usable. But most of it we’re going to be singing live, which for something like Les Miserables is essential. You don’t want it to feel like it’s all done in a recording studio, nor do you want it to look like the actors are miming the whole thing. I wouldn’t know how to do that. I think it would take more work to mime it than to sing it.”
