THE BRUSH-OFF FROM OZ
Ewan McGregor, Ricky Martin and Harry Connick Jr. were reportedly approached about succeeding Hugh Jackman in Broadway's The Boy from Oz, which closes Sunday after a successful year-long run. "I think that they were asked and just turned it down," Jackman tells the New York Times. Meanwhile, the Tony winner says he's not bidding farewell to Broadway for good. "I want to do a one-man show as Hugh Jackman," he says. "I never had the guts to admit that before." Let's hope his next big confession involves the words "Van Helsing" and "I'm sorry."
