Hugh Jackman to become 'Avon Man'

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman will star in the Full Monty-ish comedy Avon Man from 20th Century Fox, according to a story in Variety. The story follows men who are laid off from their jobs at an car dealership, and one — likely Jackman, although it's not clear in the Variety story — becomes an Avon salesman. While the venture is initially emasculating, the character eventually becomes a top seller due to his charm and good looks, and manages to coerce his buddies to join him in the endeavor to win a regional sales contest.

    There was a movie annouced a few years ago with his same premise starring Tim Allen. At that time it was supposed to include Bette Midler & Cher as battling Avon ladies. I hope they are still going to be attached to this as well.

      There were so many highlights to last night’s Oscar ceomnrey, but that was by far my favorite moment! Both my hubby and I ran to FB to update our statuses in regard to the romance montage. LOL! Overall, I think this was one of the best years for the Oscars, from Hugh to the inventive way they introduced the nominees for best actors/actresses, I thought it was top notch! Oh, and how exciting for Sean Penn to finally be recognized for the amazing work he does! Great post, Sarah!!

    I am actually an AVON lady and can’t wait for the movie. This should be a big boost for business. If anyone wants to buy or sell, contact me at CRM59@aol.com or http://www.youravon.com/cmarcovitz

    I can’t wait to see the movie. I have men on my team and I believe it could inspire more to join Avon.
