For the last two decades, Allen Hughes' primary renown has been based on joint credit. He and his identical twin, Albert, are known around Hollywood as the Hughes brothers, the hydra-headed filmmaking duo responsible for such breakthroughs as the blistering 1993 gangsta drama "Menace II Society" and the Denzel Washington-starring post-apocalyptic thriller "The Book of Eli" in 2010.

"If you're an actor, you sign up to make a fool of yourself, and that's what happened," Jackman recalls, outlining the bench-pressing part of his extensive training for the role.
