Hugh Jackman’s Cooler Scooter Race With Jimmy Fallon Is the Perfect American Pastime
With Memorial Day glimmering on the horizon like a big, shiny, pre-summer gift, ‘Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon is already celebrating the great American holiday. And what better way to celebrate such a holiday than to convince beloved star of stage and screen, Hugh Jackman (who, yes, he is Australian, but is adored by all nationalities), to nearly die while riding a cooler onscreen?
Wait, what? Die? We’re killing Hugh Jackman now? Oh, not really, but things sure do get dicey early on in this particular cooler scooter race, with Jackman nearly hitting each and every wall of Fallon’s backstage area and then almost killing an old man. He’s wild, but does that lack of control mean he’s crazy enough to win?
