Hugh Jackman is a man of many talents, and now he can had rapper to the list. While hosting the Tony Awards on Sunday night, the actor recounted a story about being in a production of "The Music Man" at a young age, and how the show's opening song, "Rock Island," was a progenitor of rap music. Then he invited LL Cool J and T.I. onstage to prove that conceit with a modernization of "Rock Island." Using a beat that Jackman said was produced by Questlove, the unlikely trio provided the Tonys with its most surprising moment. We'll just assume this was Jackman stumping for a role in NBC's live production of "The Music Man."
