Attention any Hugh Jackman fans who are planning on seeing the Australian star and James Bond hunk Daniel Craig in their new Broadway plan, A Steady Rain. Turn off your phone before the show starts, or you may get savaged by Wolverine himself!
So infuriated by a ringing cell phone that interrupted a tense moment in the play at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in NYC, Hugh, 40, called out, “You want to get that?”
Without breaking character, the dad-of-two added, “Come on, just turn it off. Unless you’ve got a better story. You want to get up and tell your stories.” The audience, clearly on his side, broke into applause.
In secretly filmed footage obtained by TMZ.com, a mustache-wearing Daniel, 41, is shown finally losing his cool at the persistent ringing before addressing the mystery culprit, “just get the phone.”
Although both heartthrobs are famous for playing uber-buff tough guys on screen, Hugh in the X-Men franchise and Daniel as a burly James Bond in Casino Royale, the actors began their careers on stage.
A Steady Rain, a play about two Chicago cops whose friendship is changed by differing accounts of the same traumatic events, will run until Dec. 6.
