Reporter: Scott Pelley, CBS 60 Minutes
Producer: Ruth Streeter

He's Australia's most popular entertainer, a so-called triple threat who can sing, dance and act, all of it brilliantly.

Now, Hugh Jackman is showcasing his prodigious talents in the big screen adaptation of the musical Les Miserables. The heroic Jean Valjean is a role he was born to play and already he's being tipped for a Best Actor Oscar.

Still, our Hugh, is too grounded to get caught up in the hype and for the past few months, he's been back in his hometown of Sydney, filming the latest instalment in the Wolverine franchise.

And that’s where Scott Pelley of American 60 Minutes caught up with him for an emotional trip down memory lane.
