Café subscribers might be interested in the following comment by Hugh Jackman in an interview about his role in _The Prestige_:
"I did a lot of work with [technical consultants and magicians] Ricky Jay and Michael Weber on the style of performance, and I really modeled my character, in terms of style, on a guy called Channing Pollock, who was a magician of the '50s and actually became a movie star in France later. He was American, I think."
The quote is from an interview at
