I didn't see it on Broadway, but I saw One Man, Two Guv'nors in London and I would also put it on a list of the funniest things I've ever seen. The last section of the first act had me laughing so hard I couldn't sit up.

If it couldn't be Hugh, I can't think of anyone I'd be more delighted to see hosting the 2016 Tonys than James Corden. His overly extended servant in ONE MAN, TWO GUV'NORS a few years ago on Broadway was the funniest performance I've ever seen.

This movie is getting trailed on the tv frequently with the line "the best reviewed movie of the year". What caught my attention was "from the director of Prisoners". Hugh does it again. So has anyone seen it?
by mamaleh
Well, I know of one person who won't be seeing Hugh's shows in Australia. Happened to see on a TV news crawl this morning that Chris Brown will not be allowed to enter Australia because of his being convicted of assaulting Rihanna.

So accommodating each other's careers and never being apart for more than two weeks doesn't seem to work out for everyone:

If there was more to talk about this topic/thread would not have gained traction and more people would still be participating in general.  Aside from the fact that I always want Hugh's films to be box office hits, I don't care about either Pan or Wolverine so it's unlikely I will post about either film. 

I disagree that fans claiming to be fans when they are unhappy with Hugh's choices are not true fans.  I am among them and I can assure you that I have been a major fan for 10 years!.  I am also 100% certain that I would not have become a significant fan had I not seen The Boy From Oz.  In 2005 at the Imperial Theater I was certain we were witnessing the birth of a legendary star to rival Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Paul Newman - you get my drift.  His career did not unfold the way we envisioned.  It wasn't that we had hopes beyond reason either because he could have done it.  Year after year, little by little I/we became disheartened knowing the depth of his talent wasn't being tapped or put to "the highest and best use" as we say in real estate.  There are many theories why, personally I think it started with John Palermo, when he lost some important years and never fully recovered.  He finally became a household name and 10 years later we are still getting our hopes dashed.  Now Hugh is too old for younger parts.  Unless you are a Wolverine fanatic there has been plenty to be disappointed about. For myself, I've seen only one Hugh movie more than once, yet I've seen in on stage at least 12 times travelling across a continent to do it each time.  I "got" The River and still did not like it, sold my second round of tickets.  It's not that I only like him on stage, it's more that I simply don't like a lot of his movies.

The characteristic that we all fell so hard for was Hugh's character and his looks are somehow entwined.  He has never veered off center in his personal life, he is exactly the man I always felt he was - Hugh is the real deal.  Nor has he ever had one hint of scandal, everyone that meets him gushes effusively over him and most importantly, he has never cheated on a wife of 17 years.  Even though he didn't take the path I had in mind, he was worth my time and the reason I hang on. 


I never said anything about "true fans" ;) I spoke specifically about two or three cases that I noticed elswhere (IMDB maybe?) where some people said "If he was just listening to his fans". Literally, like this. I should have been more specific, sorry. I was talking about myself and that I follow Hugh mostly because he is the real deal as you called it so it is not about movies anymore.
Yes, as a more genre fan (sci-fi geek), I enjoy most of his stuff, even though I will be happy to see him away from Wolverine.

Sadly, I have never seen him on stage. I started to follow him closely right after TBFO, sometimes around The Fountain/The Prestige were out. Since then, he performed only on Broadway so there is no way for me to afford it - at least wasn´t cos I was still a college student back then. I wish he would come to London and did that Shakespeare...

I agree about John Palermo...he was there, and then he was gone, all that production going nowhere (yet other actors have their companies producing interesting stuff). Maybe he should try to produce again, I think he would be good just on his own. 


narrows101: ocycd - I still see your avatar. Sept 22, 2013 9:24:14 GMT -5
Kristin: Ocycd - It's probably an issue on your end, with graphics not loading properly, because I can see your avatar too. Unless you can see everyone else's avatar and not yours, then I'll have to figure out why that's happening. Sept 22, 2013 20:37:44 GMT -5
Kristin: Pat - Awesome! It was bothering me that I couldn't figure that one out. Sept 22, 2013 20:38:07 GMT -5
ocycd: That is so weird cuz I can see everyone else's avatars but still not mine... and the same is true on my mac and my pc laptop... very strange. Maybe I'll try reloading it on my laptop next time I'm on it... thanks narrows101 and Kristin!! Sept 23, 2013 16:22:48 GMT -5
ocycd: My avatar is BACK! And I didn't do a thing... thank you magic virtual wizards!! Sept 27, 2013 15:01:45 GMT -5
24601: Kristin, what do you see below my avatar? Nov 19, 2013 22:53:12 GMT -5
nmb: :) Dec 12, 2013 18:42:47 GMT -5
24601: This is an absurd question. How does one post a new freestanding post within a thread? Using Reply button is all I know and more often than not becomes tedious, repetitive, bandwidth sucking reading. Feb 23, 2014 15:13:32 GMT -5
Kristin: You can't. You can only reply to threads or create a new thread. You can use the quick reply to just post something without responding to anyone in a thread, or quoting someone, but as far as just posting in a thread, you have to use the reply button. Mar 21, 2014 13:25:23 GMT -5
frances: The hair is one thing but I wish we had more opportunity to see that face without the beard. May 6, 2014 12:07:05 GMT -5
SueFB: Does anybody ever pay attention to this place here? Aug 11, 2014 15:24:05 GMT -5
Kristin: I forget it's here most of the time. Aug 12, 2014 6:59:17 GMT -5
SueFB: Yeah, me, too. I wonder what it's really intended for. For random comments that don't belong anywhere? I guess. Aug 13, 2014 8:12:31 GMT -5
ocycd: Here's my random thought... a week from tonight I'm seeing The River and I'm too excited to sleep! Oct 28, 2014 0:08:20 GMT -5
24601: How many times have you all seen the show or seen him at the stage door? Nov 5, 2014 15:53:50 GMT -5
ocycd: I only saw the show the one time... and I didn't wait at the stage door or before or after... but I'm thinking I might have to go back in January to see how the show has changed! Nov 9, 2014 22:10:04 GMT -5
24601: 2 River Ticket - Jan 25th. Good seats. PM me if interested. Nov 26, 2014 20:15:09 GMT -5
