Hugh Jackman to appear on ‘Top Gear’ this Sunday (July 21)

'X-Men' actor takes part in the popular 'star in a reasonably-priced car' challenge

Hugh Jackman is to appear on Top Gear this Sunday (July 21).

The X-Men actor was filmed taking part in the show’s “star in a reasonably-priced car” challenge on Wednesday (July 17) and his lap will be shown during this week’s episode, airing Sunday at 8pm on BBC Two. Jackman tweeted a photo from the track afterwards.

Three of Jackman’s co-stars from the next X-Men film – Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender – have already taken part in the “star in a reasonably-priced car” challenge, as have fellow Hollywood A-listers Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Dame Helen Mirren.

Jackman’s eagerly-anticipated X-Men spin-off movie The Wolverine is set to open in cinemas next Friday (July 26). The film finds his claw-sporting mutant on a mission in Japan and you can watch the trailer below.
