Hugh Jackman has described his Les Miserables role as "beyond" a dream come true.

The Australian actor stars as reformed convict Jean Valjean in Tom Hooper's big-screen adaptation, alongside Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Asked on Twitter if the part has been a dream role, he replied: "Beyond", and added that filming is "almost done, a few more weeks to go."

Hugh also gave an update on the long-developing Wolverine sequel, spilling the beans on when shooting will start.

"Starts shooting in August," he said.

The 43-year-old - who previously said that filming will begin in 2011 - will reprise his role as the X-Men mutant in the second spin-off film, which has run into several delays since its 2009 teaser.

James Mangold is attached to direct, with a release date set for summer 2013.

You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
