Have you seen his movies? Old Man Logan ( white hair and all), Jean Valjean as the father of grown-up Cosette, Wolverine who is actually 180 years old... but he has also been de-aged for the early part of Greatest Showman ... but made to look older in Bad Education (director Cory Finley said that they added makeup - chicken skin- and prosthetics - beer belly- to make him look closer to biopic subject Frank Tassone). Unlike the other previous Harold Hills, Hugh would probably rate as the best-looking of the group. Also, his natural athleticism gives him the grace of movement ( whether dance or fight choreography - which he says are very close in discipline and training). He has been widely praised for his career-best performance in Bad Education so his acting skills will enhance his stage portrayal of the con-man. He has also said that he continues to do singing for the role with music director PVacariello and taking singing lessons. Warren Carlyle has been asking him to test some of the dance routines so much so that with the regular singing, Hugh says he feels he already knows the role -LOL.

Of course the timing of the show opening ( still on advice for an April preview) is still subject to how the pandemic eases. What may affect his tenure with The Music Man is if he can no longer commit to a yearlong run, given the delay. He still has a movie career to take his time.

Btw, he is turning 52 on October 12. But look at the impact of a recent ad he did for luxury bootmaker, RMWilliams. An ad agency research site shared the results of the recent ad, which went viral about a week ago.
