Closet song-and-dance man Hugh Jackman has found the perfect way of promoting his upcoming musical THE BOY FROM OZ - he's taking charge of Broadway's Tony Awards in New York.

The X2 star will make his Broadway debut as Peter Allen in the bio-musical this autumn (03), but he'll get a taste of the 'Big White Way' on 8 June (03) when he presents the Tonys at Radio City Music Hall, New York.

Those joining the host to present awards include Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, 'N SYNC star Joey Fatone, Christopher Reeve and LAURENCE FISHBURNE.

The 57th annual Tonys are expected to be a big night for EUGENE O'NEILL's epic play LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, musical HAIRSPRAY, and stage spectacular MOVIN' OUT.
