HUGH’S MEGABUCKS TV GIG

Star (USA) - - DISH -

With World of Dance, The Voice and Amer­ica’s Got Ta­lent — just to name a few — there’s cer­tainly no short­age of com­pe­ti­tion shows on TV. But Amer­i­can Idol master­mind Nigel Lyth­goe is con­vinced that au­di­ences are hun­gry to see Hugh Jack­man on a judg­ing panel, and he’s craft­ing a new se­ries around the hunky Aussie ac­tor! “He sees Hugh as the ul­ti­mate feel-good judge, and they both share a love of dance, so they’ve been kick­ing around some ideas,” says a source close to Nigel, who also serves as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance. “Hugh’s 50 and re­al­iz­ing his days do­ing stuntheavy ac­tion flicks are num­bered, so go­ing in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion and tap­ping into his the­atri­cal side might not be so bad. Plus, he loves men­tor­ing up-and-com­ing ac­tors, and he could po­ten­tially earn hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars per episode.” Guess he re­ally is the Great­est Show­man!
