We asked Van Helsing star Hugh Jackman – who is nominated for a Tony for his acclaimed Broadway turn in The Boy from Oz – about his first time ... seeing a musical, that is. "I think it was Cats," he told us. "I loved it. I was 11 when my father took me and I thought it was great – these cats jumping out behind me. It also scared the hell out of me." Yeah, us too. But wait, there's more: "My father also took me to La Cage aux Folles, which kind of surprised me because my father was a religious man," Jackman said. "So we get there and my brother and I are watching and (I) say, 'I think Dad's made a mistake.' "

Judge Barry Zimmerman also ordered Brown to turn himself in to authorities July 10 or 11 for fingerprinting. The judge also warned him against having "violent contact" with Houston. The couple left the courtroom walking arm-in-arm and made no comment to reporters.
