Surprise! Hugh Jackman was chosen to be the brand ambassador of Micromax, an Indian mobile handset company.

The Hollywood star has openly expressed his love for India.  He supports Indian brands and is delighted to be the face behind Micromax.

I am extremely thrilled and honoured to be part of the Micromax family. I am a huge lover of India as it is one of the most exciting countries in the world and we also share our love for cricket,” said the 45-year-old actor.

Born in Sydney to English parents, Hugh Jackman is better known for his roles in:  X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine and Les Miserables, to name a few. 

The actor is super supportive of the brand. “Phones are genuinely time saving devices that can help you live a better life while juggling around with different situations. The new Canvas phone from Micromax is a leap in innovation with great sense of fun and amazing features that helps me balance my work with all the different roles that I play in my everyday life,”  Jackman said in a statement. 

We hear he beat out a Bollywood star for this position.  That’s huge, considering it’s an Indian brand.  Reportedly, the Micromax family truly believes Hugh Jackman “embodies the aspirational, reinventing and fearless persona of the brand”.

Hugh Jackman’s Latest, ‘The Wolverine’, Claws Into Theaters This Friday!!!

In a summer filed with superheroes, you don’t want to keep the adamantium-clawed Wolverine on the sidelines, bub.  Hugh Jackman is once again Wolverine in what will be the sixth installment in the X-Men series.  Famke Janssen also briefly reprises her role as Jean Gray, even though audiences saw her die in ‘X-Men:Last Stand‘.

It seems that this time Logan (Wolverine) has to travel to Japan to settle some old scores.  This being a movie based on Frank Miller and Chris Claremont‘s classic 1982 Wolverine series of comics; Japan is of course filled with samurais, ninjas, Yakuza, and other deadly combatants for Wolverine to face.  Oh, and did we mention he loses his ability to heal and recover from pretty much any wound, thus making him mortal?  We’re sure the fur will fly, no pun intended.

Here’s a trailer for ‘The Wolverine‘:

Jackman is known almost as much for achieving the toned physique necessary for playing the Wolverine as the films themselves and this time around is no different.  He spoke of trying to pack more muscle onto his 6’2″ (192cm) frame to emulate the squat muscularity of the Wolverine most comic book fans have come to expect.

Jackman talked of weighing 210 pounds (95.24 kgs) on this movie versus the 190 lbs (86.18 kgs) he did on the last film and having to consume whole chickens in one sitting for the calories necessary.  He also said he’d been told by Darren Arronofsky that “Hey you looked great, but you’re so tall that in those long shots you looked kind of like Clint Eastwood, and that’s not Wolverine.” Jackman added “He said that Wolverine, in the comics, is powerful, stocky, you know, he’s short and thick. So he said, ‘I want you to go there, get bigger.
