Home Celebrity Hugh Jackman Bringing “Les Miz” Cast to Museum Dinner; Sting, Nile Rodgers...

If there’s a lot of anticipation about “Les Miserables,” then the spotlight will really be on this year’s dinner for the Museum of the Moving Image. On December 11th the Museum is honoring Hugh Jackman with an all star dinner at Cipriani Wall Street. Hugh, who never misses a chance to put on a tuxedo, is attracting quite the crowd. I’m told the entire “Les Miz” gang will be there, with Anne Hathaway already confirmed. Other stars also signed up are Liev Schreiber, Alec Baldwin, and Rachel Weisz. (Can Daniel Craig be far behind?) Every year the MMI has a swell event….

…The We Are Family Foundation has rescheduled its annual fundraiser for January 31st. Sting and Trudie Styler are being honored at the Hammerstein Ballroom event, and Sting will be playing along with foundation founder Nile Rodgers and Chic. The original date was October 29th, and was long in the planning until Hurricane Sandy wiped the whole thing out. We Are Family Foundation was started in 2001 right after September 11th, and supports programs for racial tolerance and builds schools all over the world…

…The Beatles’ Apple Films have put out a call for anyone who has video or memorabilia from the group’s 250 or so live performances. They’re going to make a documentary out of all of it and are obviously light on material. The film is called “The Beatles Live Project” and offers fans the opportunity to upload said video onto the Beatles website. But uploader beware: nowhere in this plan is there mention of being paid for your footage, photographs, or audio recordings. Why would you give the Beatles, who are zillionaires, free stuff? For the glory of being included? No, no, no. We love the Beatles, but they are more than capable of paying for rights to material not owned by them.

What do you think?
