Hugh Jackman Shares a Photo From the Set of ‘THE FRONT RUNNER’

Hugh Jackman has shared a photo on his Twitter of the first day of principal photography for Jason Reitman’s THE FRONT RUNNER, in which he plays Presidential hopeful Gary Hart.

Jackman is joined alongside Vera Farmiga, J.K Simmons, Mamoudou Athie, Josh Brener, Kaitlyn Dever, Tommy Dewey, Molly Ephraim, Spencer Garrett, Ari Graynor, Toby Huss, Mike Judge, Alex Karpovsky, Mark O’Brian, Sara Paxton, Kevin Pollak, and Steve Zissis.

Hart served as a U.S. Senator from Colorado from 1975 to 1987, but he’s famous for his two bids for the presidency in 1984 and 1988. During the latter primary campaign, he was considered the frontrunner, far ahead of eventual candidate Mike Dukakis, but his momentum became hobbled by accusations in the media of an extramarital affair. Hart famously challenged the media to, “Follow me around. I don’t care. I’m serious. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. They’ll be very bored.” The tabloids accepted the challenge, and photographs of Hart with a woman named Donna Rice aboard a yacht brought a swift end to his candidacy.
