Hugh Jackman's 'Oprah' stunt goes horribly, hilariously awry



Neither Hugh Jackman nor anyone else was seriously injured when his grand entrance to "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in Australia went seriously sideways on Tuesday (Dec. 14). So it's OK to laugh at the video above.

According to numerous reports, including one from Australia's ABC network (which provided the clip above), Jackman was entering Winfrey's show at the Sydney Opera House on a zipline. He told Winfrey that he failed to engage the brake quickly enough, and as a result he crashed into the lighting rig above the stage.
