Hollywood star Hugh Jackman wowed British TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson as he showed off his driving skills on hit motoring show Top Gear, landing in third place on the programme's leader board. The Australian actor appeared on the show on Sunday (21Jul13) to take part in the Star In a Reasonably-Priced Car segment, in which famous faces race against the clock around a circuit in a family saloon. Jackman was determined to impress and hared around the track in just one minute and 46.1 seconds - taking boxer David Haye's place in third spot, behind AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson and funnyman Jimmy Carr. Watching film footage of Jackman hurtling around the circuit, a clearly impressed Clarkson told him, "Hey Hugh, this is not bad at all. I'm actually deeply impressed."
