Didn’t know this but he’s a successful stage actor before making his Hollywood breakthrough with X-Men in 2000. These moves are piece of cake.
New Wolverine movie in Japan
Jackman will soon film a new Wolverine movie which is set in Japan, but I think he will shoot most of the scenes in studios and “fake” locations. For example they made this Lipton advertisement in Rio de Janeiro and not Tokyo despite the title.
Trivia: Brazil is home to the largest Japanese population outside Japan. There’s about 1.6 million people of Japanese descent in the country.
[Update 2013] Check out the official trailers for The Wolverine. As expected it’s mostly filmed outside of Japan. Many of the co-stars are Japanese though.
