Dodd Vickers in magician is reporting on Hugh Jackman's preparations for his role in the Broadway Musical Houdini set to open in 2010. According to Fox, "Hugh is hard at work learning Houdini’s magic tricks, I am told, many that will be reproduced faithfully eight times a week on stage. Whatever he’s doing involving chains, water tanks, or straitjackets, Jackman looks no worse for the wear." Obviously, this is not Jackman's first time appearing in the role of a magician as he starred in the 2006 film "The Prestige." Jackman also has an impending release of the film Wolverine on May 1st and was the most recent host of the Academy Awards.
