Hugh's killer 'stache
Celebublog "Just Jared" recently caught Hugh Jackman sporting quite the killer 'stache on the set of the Baz Luhrmann-directed epic drama AUSTRALIA. The film, which quite recently started production in the titular country/continent, centers on a World War II-era English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) who, rather than risk losing her inherited cattle ranch in northern Australia to nefarious cattle barons, decides to transport her entire herd across hundreds of miles of unforgiving Australian outback. Knowing this task requires the wherewithal of a veteran cattle driver with a knockout 'stache, she contracts Jackman's character to help her. Filming is scheduled to continue until October but we don't know as yet whether the 'stache will make it through until the end of production. We can only hope. Get the rest of the pictures, including a few different looks at the 'stache, HERE. AUSTRALIA is expected to be released late 2008.

|Extra Tidbit:||Both Russell Crowe and Heath Ledger were attached to star before Hugh Jackman stepped in to save the day, much like he did when Brad Pitt dropped out of THE FOUNTAIN.|
