Who is the special guest for the Academy of Music's 156th birthday in January? Is it:
(a) A highly respected song-and-dance man? (b) The sexiest man alive, 2008? Or (c) a wolverine?
In a gesture of considerably greater Hollywood dash than previous years, Academy leaders are importing all three in a single guest: Hugh Jackman.
The Australian actor and singer will perform Jan. 26 with the Philadelphia Orchestra for the Academy of Music Anniversary Concert.
Jackman, 43, wasn't available for an interview, an orchestra spokeswoman said, and details of the program are not yet set.
