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)
