Edit Request: Hugh Jackman's "Charity Work" Section[edit]

I feel like this section needs a serious update. It hasn't been updated since 2009, and Hugh Jackman, who is dedicated to his philanthropy and humanitarian work, has done so much more since then that is currently very relevant.

Could we please add Hugh Jackman's charitable coffee & tea company, Laughing Man, to his philanthropy section? It is the most important charity to him and it is his company that he started, and yet it doesn't get a mention. He even put out a documentary in 2015 called "Dukale's Dream" about how fair trade initiatives and simple, bio-friendly practices like the methane gas converter, provided by World Vision, have helped improve the quality of life of impoverished farmers and their families in places like Ethiopia. The documentary also highlights how Laughing Man was started and focuses on the people who inspired Hugh to start it (particularly, Dukale and his family). The proceeds made from showing the documentary all went to World Vision and the Laughing Man Foundation (for training impoverished farmers to become entrepreneurs and providing education and healthcare for their wives and children).

Here is the direct link to his company and foundation: http://laughingmanfoundation.org/index.html#topofpage

Then there are countless articles he and others have written about it and interviews with excellent information. Here are some great links. From CNN last year: "Hugh Jackman Takes On Global Poverty" http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/12/entertainment/iyw-hugh-jackman-dukale-dream-ethiopia/

From World Vision's Website: "Hugh Jackman Disrupts Poverty With Fair Trade Coffee Company and New Documentary" - http://www.worldvision.org/news-stories-videos/hugh-jackman-coffee-documentary-dukales-dream

From CBS in April 2016: "Hugh Jackman changing lives one cup of coffee at a time" - http://www.cbsnews.com/news/hugh-jackman-changing-lives-one-cup-of-coffee-at-a-time/

Hugh has also done so much through World Vision. He helped out with Haiti Earthquake relief, among other things, through World Vision.

Hugh and his wife, Deborra-Lee, started the Jackman-Furness Foundation in 2014 to give back to his former school, WAAPA, and produce scholarships for young artists, particularly in the Aboriginal community. Here is their website: http://jffpa.com/

I think his dedication to the Indigenous community could also be emphasized on his philanthropic section. Here are some key points:

In 2015, Hugh protested against the closing of Indigenous communities in Australia: http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2015/09/16/hugh-jackman-calls-renewed-fight-stop-indigenous-community-closures

Hugh is deeply involved with "Nomad Two Worlds", an organization dedicated to supporting indigenous and marginalized communities World Wide: https://nomadtwoworlds.com/our-story http://russelljames.com/nomad-photography-collection/foreword-by-hugh-jackman

And here is Hugh even talking about Nomad Two Worlds at his Broadway Show where he had Indigenous Artists perform on stage with him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSaGp3gLGLY

And Hugh Jackman was named as an Ambassador for Quantas last year, and through that position, he teamed up with the Indigenous Marathon Foundation to launch an initiative to help young indigenous in Australia become leaders: http://www.qantasnewsroom.com.au/media-releases/hugh-jackman-and-qantas-announce-initiative-to-champion-a-new-generation-of-young-indigenous-leaders/

He's done so much more for so many charities, but for now, we could at least start with updating the section with these facts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thelitigator1776 (talkcontribs) 03:48, 26 June 2016 (UTC) Thelitigator1776 (talk) 19:08, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

You could draft an update to the section on your personal sandbox or on a userspace draft. And then have someone review it before posting it live. Softlavender (talk) 13:43, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Article needs a Filmography section[edit]

This is the only Wikipedia article on a major actor that does not contain a Filmography section. Softlavender (talk) 01:40, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Really? You've checked out all of them? Please list all the ones you checked.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:46, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Laurence Olivier is the second one I looked at. Doesn't have one.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:49, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Laurence Olivier#Stage roles and filmography. -- Softlavender (talk) 02:08, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
It's over at Hugh Jackman on screen and stage. Does that one need to be renamed? Seems to be consistent with Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:17, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm talking about a Filmography section (and TOC-visible header) in this bio article, the same as Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Laurence Olivier, and every other major actor have. Readers looking for an actor's filmography (the most important part of any screen actor's life/article) need an immediately findable and visible section title that either contains a filmography list or points to a filmography list. Softlavender (talk) 02:27, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
I see it there with the recent edits. It's just a section with a "Main article" link with not much else to say about it. So it is comparable to Julia Roberts article for now. I'm surprised it wasn't there before? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:47, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, Bbb23 added the section ten minutes after I opened this thread. Thanks, Bbb (I didn't check the actual content of your edit till now). Softlavender (talk) 02:54, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
I actually restored it to there. I had put it there before, but it was moved by another editor to a very strange place in the article. Even earlier, it was listed as a See also, which made no sense to me.--Bbb23 (talk) 03:50, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

"Vocal Chords" Facepalm. Could someone with access to edit this correct it to "vocal cords" thanks. Unless someone actually thinks he's strumming C G and Em with his voice or something. LOL — Preceding unsigned comment added by 118.92.219.32 (talk) 07:38, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Infobox Image[edit]

Stemoc, As I mentioned you need to establish consensus before replacing good images with inferior images. In the previous image he has nose bandage thus this one is more decent and appropriate for infobox. You are edit-warring rather than following WP:BRD. CerberaOdollam (talk) 07:42, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

Update[edit]

Please insert the fact that Hugh Jackman was once a PE teacher at Uppingham School. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj46BWpxFcA Thanks!

I personally think that you're going to need a better source – that video was very light-hearted (not that we can expect anything less from Jackman). 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 12:20, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 22 June 2017[edit]

Don't mind if I do it but Jackman grew up with all his siblings in Australia, not just his brothers. Look it up it's true. 85.255.236.33 (talk) 00:49, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Actually, some editors did "look it up" and the reliable sources they consulted, and included in the article, indicate Jackman's sisters went back to England with their mother. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 03:00, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

early life new information[edit]

Hi, I'm new to this but I was reading about my favourite actor and would like to add that Hugh played the lead role in the PLC (Pymble Ladies College) musical Brigadoon in 1985. I was in the chorus. Thanks, hopefully it can be added. Skijenny (talk) 10:46, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Skijenny, can you add some sort of reliable source confirming this? Whether it's the kind of information that even belongs here is another question, but this should help you regardless when it comes to using Wikipedia. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 13:20, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
