Hugh Jack­man Plays Pol­i­tics

Chattanooga Times Free Press - Parade - - Personality -

"I had a pass­ing knowl­edge of the scan­dal,” says Jack­man, 50, who plays Gary Hart in The Front Run­ner (Nov. 6), a drama about how the U.S. se­na­tor from Colorado was forced out of the race for the 1988 Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion when his ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fair was re­vealed by the press. "When Hart was run­ning, our ap­petite for news was just be­gin­ning to grow the way it has,” says the star of

Les Misérables, The Great­est Show­man and the X-Men fran­chise. "Peo­ple were start­ing to want more im­me­di­ate, fast-break­ing news, and this scan­dal fed into that.”
