Who doesn't love Hugh Jackman? Of course, he's made his fair share of shitty movies ("Kate & Leopold," "Van Helsing," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine") , but there's something inherently likable and undeniably charming about the actor so that, even when the film is bad, Jackman's never less than totally committed, normally proving the best thing in the movie. And from "X-Men" to "The Fountain" and "The Prestige," he's given plenty of good performances as well, not least his hosting of the Oscars, a recent high-watermark for the show.

Who doesn't love Hugh Jackman? Of course, he's made his fair share of shitty movies ("Kate & Leopold," "Van Helsing," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), but there's something inherently likable and undeniably charming about the actor so that, even when the film is bad, Jackman's never less than totally committed, normally proving the best thing in the movie. And from "X-Men" to "The Fountain" and "The Prestige," he's given plenty of good performances as well, not least his hosting of the Oscars, a recent high-water mark for the show.

And as of today, we might love him a little bit more. Jackman's starred in a new College Humor viral video in support of Harlem Village Academies, the groundbreaking NYC school that says 'Teachers are Superstars' on which he serves on the board for, and playing himself, the star is very, very funny, auditioning for a job at the school with a monologue from "Shrek," push-ups, and a rendition of Cee-Lo Green's "Fuck You." And it's all for a good cause too. Watch the clip below, and you can find out more about Harlem Village Academies here.
