Hugh Jackman tweets a pic from day one of principal photography on The Front Runner
Hugh Jackman stars as Presidential hopeful Gary Hart in the upcoming Jason Reitman-directed film The Front Runner. Today, Jackman tweeted a pic from the first day of principal photography for the film. You can check out his tweet below.
Cast members for The Front Runner include Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel, Up in the Air), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Mamoudou Athie (The Detour), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Kaitlyn Dever (Justified), Tommy Dewey (Justified), Molly Ephraim (Last Man Standing), Spencer Garrett (Thank You for Smoking), Ari Graynor (I’m Dying Up Here), Toby Huss (Halt and Catch Fire), Mike Judge (Beavis & Butthead), Alex Karpovsky (Girls), Mark O’Brian (Halt and Catch Fire), Sara Paxton (Murder in the First), Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects) and Steve Zissis (Baghead).
Hart served as a U.S. Senator from Colorado from 1975 to 1987, but is most 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.
