Jackman set for ballsy new role in Farrelly comedy

The X-Men hunk will take on the role for laughs in just one scene of the as-yet-untitled upcoming film from the writer/director, who is one half of the moviemaking duo known as The Farrelly Brothers, with his sibling Bobby.

According to Australia’s Sydney Daily Telegraph, Jackman will play the unfortunate man, who goes out on a date with a bemused Kate Winslet.

The date will make up just one of 17 segments in the new venture, which will feature an ensemble cast including Gerard Butler, Naomi Watts, Justin Long and Sam Rockwell.
