First Photo: Hugh Jackman Is “The Front Runner”

Actor Hugh Jackman has released a first-look image of himself in Jason Reitman’s upcoming political drama “The Front Runner” which is based on Matt Bai’s 2014 book “All the Truth Is Out”.

Filming began today on the project about Gary Hart, the Democratic politician who was considered the frontrunner for the 1988 presidential race.

His campaign was rocked by allegations of an extramarital affair with actress Donna Rice, prompting the senator to drop out of the race and marking a turning point for personal indiscretions of political candidates becoming tabloid fodder.

J.K. Simmons, Vera Farmiga, Mamoudou Athie, Josh Brenner, Kaitlyn Dever, Sarah Paxton, Ari Graynor and Mike Judge co-star.
