This amuses me too much
Hugh Jackman, the Australian actor known to film audiences for playing a furry comic-book hero in the X-Men movies...

No, a furry is something else entirely.

Also, they call him a "mutant wolverine". Um, no. He's a mutant human whose code-name is Wolverine.

Really, I should trust newspapers less than I do. I know what kinds of details they're getting wrong about subjects that I'm familiar with, which implies that they may well be getting details wrong on all other subjects.

Yeah, I have this vague suspicion that the reporter is imagining Beast, who is furry and could be an uplifted wolverine...

Is he supposedly a (furry (comic-book)) hero or a furry ((comic-book) hero)? Or even maybe a (furry comic)-(book hero)?

You can get an Emmy for hosting the Tony's?!?

My favorite part:
Serving as host of the three-hour live show requires physical stamina and an ability to hold up under the emotional pressure of knowing that the television audience, while diminished in the United States, numbers several hundred million worldwide.

This year Mr. Jackman will have the added pressure of serving as the ringmaster of a lavish self-congratulation-a-thon at a time of global economic crisis.
