Hugh Jackman Sings New Version of “Who Am I?” From ‘Les Mis’ as Wolverine

By March 31, 2014

Hugh Jackman has just kicked off his press tour to promote the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past around the world, and one of his early stops was to a BBC Radio 1 show, where he brought out a bit of his musical side to portray something that, I’m sure, a very specific subset of fans have been wanting to see for a long time: “Wolverine: The Musical.”

Laughing all the way, Jackman belts out a version of “Who Am I?” from Les Miserables (he starred in the 2012 film as Jean Valjean, if you’ll recall), but the lyrics have been tweaked a little. This time, he’s singing as a weird combination of Wolverine and Jackman himself, poking fun at the actor’s workout regimen and the fact that he can’t eat ice cream because people expect him to look a certain way.

It’s a quick, fun little video, and even though Jackman doesn’t hit the high note at the very end, he does a pretty damn good job with this considering it looks like this is the first time he’s seeing these lyrics. Watch it below:

Would you pay to see “Wolverine: The Musical” if it came to a theater near you?
