Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman can do it all. Play a superhero? Check. Sing? Check. Host the Oscars? Check. Jackman discusses his motivation and his love of a great cigar in the April issue of Cigar Aficionado. Plus, we look at what it would take to normalize relations with Cuba; speak with retired golfing legend Jack Nicklaus about his course designs; discover why businessmen are attracted to high-stakes poker. Also we interview sportscaster Joe Buck and crunch all the data from our previous year's cigar tastings.
