Hugh Jackman taking on comedy in Kevin Lima’s Avon Man

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

We all love Hugh Jackman, but I don’t consider him a consistently good actor.  He takes on some roles that aren’t always great, but his natural charm and charisma usually make the film enjoyable.  I think he’ll have his work cut out for him in Kevin Lima’s AVON MAN, which he is currently in talks to star.

The film is a comedy in which a successful salesman (Jackman) is laid off and resorts to taking a job as an Avon sales rep to earn a living.  Of course, he’s not happy at first, but he quickly finds that his good looks and charm lead to a very successful business.  (note: this part I’m okay with)  Once successful, he recruits his buddies to sell with him and they compete to win a regional contest.  (note: this is where the story takes a nosedive)
