Now that he's won a special Tony Award, Hugh Jackman wants to give back to the creative arts community.
Jackman is taking time out of his busy Les Misérables-shooting schedule to help launch a new film festival in NYC.
The adorable actor hopes to "present a platform for emerging filmmakers." Aw.
Hugh is hosting the Tropfest, where a panel — including Bridesmaids' Rose Byrne — will award prizes to the best actor, actress and film.
You can see the 8 short films entries and Wolverine's ass, in Bryant Park THIS Saturday!
Someone go and send us pics! Particularly pics of his pecs … if available!
