Hugh Jackman is on a mission to not be typecast. The Marvel movie stalwart is hanging up the claws, and embracing his life as “not Wolverine”. His latest role provides the actor another opportunity to take on another iconic figure. Titled The Greatest Showman, Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum, and apparently, it’s been a passion project of Jackman’s for a long time. In addition, it’s a musical, which marks the second time Jackman has tackled the genre (his first being Les Miserable).

The Greatest Showman also stars Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya, and hits theaters on December 25th, 2017.
