Hugh Jackman Talks Sleeping During The River, Joan Rivers & More

first_img Related Shows Hugh Jackman Hugh Jackman is set to return to the Great White Way beginning October 31 in The River, and in anticipation of his Broadway bow at the Circle in the Square Theatre, the Tony winner stopped by The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his first visit to the intimate venue: to see Al Pacino in Hughie some 18 years ago. We know how that stories ends—with his wife falling asleep in the second row. “If you come, you can sleep,” Jackman says, “and I will understand, and I will sign you an autograph.” Jackman also discussed singing at Joan Rivers’ funeral: “It was an appropriate sendoff,” he says, and I felt honored to be a part of it.” Then they played some pool bowling. Because why not? Warning: it takes forever. Take a peek at the clips below, and look out for Fallon’s shout out to a certain awesome website (hint: it’s us)!

Mourinho expects tougher title race

first_img Press Association Transfer spending ahead of the new campaign has already eclipsed £500million, and with the window open for the remainder of August, last year’s total spend of £835million is set to be surpassed. Chelsea begin the defence of their title against Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. And despite a low-key summer of transfer activity, Mourinho’s side are the bookmakers’ favourites to seal back-to-back triumphs. Jose Mourinho expects this season’s Barclays Premier League to be the most competitive of his Chelsea tenure. But the Blues boss believes the spending power of the top flight – due in part to next year’s bumper TV deal – will make this season’s title race one of the fiercest in recent campaigns. “Maybe I’m wrong but I think fewer points will win the title,” Mourinho said. “You have a minimum of five title contenders and the other teams get stronger and stronger. “I think nobody can complain because everyone is investing – you go to Watford, you go to Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Stoke, every club. “Every club has very good players so I think it’s difficult for the top teams in England because of the competitive nature.” Mourinho, whose side romped to the title last term, cited Yohan Cabaye’s £12million move to Crystal Palace, Georginio Wijnaldum’s arrival at Newcastle from PSV and Max Gradel’s switch to newly-promoted Bournemouth for a reported £7million fee, as examples of the league’s strength in depth. “There will be more times when the non-title contenders win matches against the title contenders,” added Mourinho. “It’s also difficult because they have players who could play in our teams – Cabaye could play for Chelsea, Wijnaldum could play for Chelsea, Gradel could play for Chelsea. “It’s very difficult to win multiple titles. It hasn’t happened in other countries where the domination is clear. In England it’s more difficult and we all know that.” Meanwhile, Mourinho urged Ruben Loftus-Cheek, the highly-rated England youngster, to take his chance if the opportunity arises this season. The 19-year-old started for Chelsea in matches against Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion at the end of last season, but he was heavily criticised by Mourinho following a post-season game in Australia. Chelsea have come under fire for failing to promote English players from their academy through to the first team. But asked if homegrown youngsters, such as Loftus-Cheek, feature in his plans for the upcoming season, Mourinho said: “It depends on him not on me. You have to ask him. “People normally ask about chances and chances and chances and maybe that’s a good excuse for the young players to be where they are. “I think maybe for the good of English football, you should go the other way. Are you ready to get the chance? Must the manager give confidence to a player? Or must the player give confidence to a manager? “I had this nice internal discussion with my people. At the end of the day we arrive into a conclusion that players pick themselves. That’s the responsibility that they must have. “We’re in England so it’s quite fair that people are trying to get solutions for more local players. “But you know, I’m a coach. I’m not an office man and for me, as a coach, I think that the players they must give confidence for me to say ‘Let’s go’. Not the other way.” last_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena- If you told Patty and Tom Render that they would be preparing most of their meals without a source of meat, they’d probably look at you puzzled.“Meatless cooking can be healthy,” laughed the Vietnam Veteran who enjoys his meat and potatoes.As part of National Nutrition Month, the Alpena VA has been offering healthy cooking class to help veterans prepare small meals that can last a week. Dishes like a lentil and cauliflower chili can be packed away for a few days, easy to reheat. Combine it with a corn meal and you have a chili pie to increase flavor but still eat a nutritious, hearty meal.Melissa Tolan-Halleck is the VA Dietitian and has been teaching classes and presenting on healthy meal prep for the vets. Groups of three or four veterans and even their wives would get together to learn tips and tricks to staying healthy and losing those unwanted pounds.“It’s helpful, the knowledge… what to stay away from and what to choose, making the right choices,” said Patty Render.Today, veterans could drop in to taste samples and pick up recipes on different vegetable-centered dishes. Tolan-Halleck focuses on budget friendly meals incorporating a variety of spices. The hope is that veterans can take these lessons and incorporate them into everyday life. With more interest from the Veteran community in Alpena, the Render’s look forward to more classes based around living a healthy lifestyle.“It’s a good beginning, a good solid beginning.”AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Hillman Community Schools Plan to Start School Before Labor DayNext Field Trip Takes You To A Dance Class In Alpena!last_img read more
