Behind The Scenes

Hugh “Wolverine” Jackman talks about his “fantasy day” at ESPN, World Cup plans

X Men: Days of Future Past opens in theaters tomorrow.

Hugh Jackman, who plays Logan/Wolverine in the film, visited ESPN on Tuesday for a “Car Wash” to promote the movie. Among other stops he made during the day, Jackman visited with co-hosts Jemele Hill and Michael Smith on Numbers Never Lie, host Wendi Nix and analysts Mark Brunell and Mark Schlereth on NFL Live and anchor Linda Cohn on SportsCenter.

At the end of his busy days on and off soundstages, the actor considers SportsCenter “the only TV I watch.”

In the behind-the-scenes interview in the video above, Jackman tells Front Row about his “fantasy day” experience at ESPN. He also provides a hint about his plans for following the FIFA 2014 World Cup on ESPN, especially when the team representing his native Australia begins play against Chile on June 13.

“I’m going to be with my daughter and her three friends. They’re not going to be as understanding that I’m going to stop everything to watch this game,” Jackman said, “but I am.”
