Hugh Jackman, an unknown, starred in the London RNT Oklahoma!...but while it brought him an Olivier nomination...
the show eventually changed his fate.
The XMen producer LSDonnner saw him in the show...and that led to his casting as Wolverine in the first XMen movie. When the first choice could not make the filming deadline, Donner suggested that they bring in Hugh Jackman to take on the lead. He went on to stay with the role for 17 years ...and that led him to other roles (including an Oscar nomination for his role of Valjean in the film adaptation of Les Miserables) ... and back on stage on Broadway.
