Late Night Last Night: Hugh Jackman Teaches Leno PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Dance

In anticipation of the release of Les Misérables on Christmas day, Hugh Jackman has been making the rounds promoting his new film. In the film, he plays the role of Jean Valjean, a jaded parolee who spends decades running and hiding from a cutthroat French policeman, Javert, in 19th century France. But on Thursday night, Jackman took a break from the tireless promotion and got out of his seat to have some fun with Jay Leno.

During a recent trip to Korea or Sydney — Leno and Jackman mention both — Jackman ran into Korean singing sensation PSY. And PSY took some time to teach Jackman the movies to his infamous “Gangnam Style.” Well, this lesson came quite handy Thursday night as Jackman got Leno out of his hosting chair to learn the moves.

Watch Leno and Jackman break it down on The Tonight Show.
