    Every time I look at Hugh Jackman I see Clint Eastwood. Either he’s trying very hard to reproduce Clint’s image or he’s actually a son of Clint’s, which wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

    Wow..Thank you Hollywood. What a joy to finally get a movie with TWO AMAZING GUYS!

    Yes! Definitely will see this one. Especially with Rob & Hugh in historical costume!

    Minerva, I have been noticing the similarity lately, too. Look at old posters of Clint Eastwood and you`d swear your looking at Hugh Jackman.

    I can see Jackman in this role…however whatever facial silimarities might appear in this photo, and I do like this guy, as far as acting goes, he’s no Clint…

    Thank goodness someone else sees Clint Eastwood there too, so it isn’t just me and I’m not losing my marbles. Their skin and hair colouring is identical and the hair falls the very same way. Same facial structure, eyes, etc. and many of their mannerisms are alike. Clint wasn’t really much of an actor in his early movies, if you notice, he had few lines to say in any of his roles.

    I see the resemblance as well, but yea he’s no Clint. Diff. persona. Australia was somewhat of a western, but boy did it ever blow.

    Was Australia really bad? I want to see it, but I’m not a big fan of Nicole Kidman. But the commercials did look good.

    Carol,the greatest acting couldn’t save this film. They were touting this as the next Gone With The Wind. Hardly.

    I just can’t see this Twilight kid as goodlooking except in a “aren’t I pretty in an undead kind of way”…
