Seriously... is there ANYthing Hugh Jackman cannot do?!?

He's portrayed a superhero on the big screen. He's played a gay man on Broadway.

And, last night at the 2014 Tony Awards, Jackman showed off his rapping skills. Yes, readers, Hugh Jackman can rap.

The actor started out singing a song about “The Music Man,” only to then stop himself because it needed an update for the 21st century... and then he welcomed T.I. and LL Cool J to the stage.

Perhaps the only thing more unexpected than Hugh Jackman rapping would be T.I. and LL Cool J showing up at the Tonys. Have they forever lost all street cred?

Watch and decide for yourself:

What's in a name? As it turns out, maybe everything.

Since Shakespeare first posited the question in Romeo and Juliet, actors have been using fake names to land professional roles. Not only did it allow them some semblance of privacy before the dawn of Wikipedia, but let's face it, some people just aren't born with great names.

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor? Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta? Quite a mouthful.

If an actor or musician's entire career is dedicated to being someone else - a character or personality, perhaps - then a good stage name can go a long way to making that career explode.

More celebrities use pseudonyms than you might think. In fact, here are 67 stars who don't use their real names. Which ones did you know before viewing this gallery?

Lorde
Musical sensation Lorde was given the name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor at birth. We'd probably go with Lorde, too.

LL Cool J is standing up for "Accidental Racist."

The track - released today as part of Brad Paisley's new albu -  features the country singer crooning about life in the South, while the rapper jumps in about what it's like to be African-American in society.

LL refers to himself in the song as a "new fangled Django," while Paisley says his native region is still "siftin through the rubble" of "Reconstruction."

As you might expect, such a topic has generated a lot of controversy, but LL tells CNN that he's "proud" of the duet.

Brad Paisley and LL Cool J have teamed up on a track that is creating quite the buzz on the Internet.

Titled "Accidental Racist," the single tells Paisley's story of dealing with racial issues in the South.

Describing himself as a "proud rebel" with "a lot to learn," the country artist's verse is answered by the rapper, who replies:

If you don’t judge my do-rag… I won’t judge your red flag.

Why has Paisley released the song, which is included on the album "Wheelhouse?"

NCIS: Los Angeles star LL Cool J confronted a burglary suspect in his home early this morning and took the dude down with his own hands ... which should not come as a surprise to anyone who has ever seen LL Cool J.

The suspect allegedly broke into LL's LA-area home around 2 a.m. Unfortunately for him, he tripped the alarm and LL was home at the time.

After hearing commotion downstairs and investigating, LL Cool J called the cops ... then physically took the guy down and restrained him until officers arrived.

The actor is reportedly fine, but the suspect, who will be booked for burglary, suffered a few scrapes and bruises. Again, to the surprise of no one.

Talk about picking the wrong house to rob. Next time, just do a little research and rob anyone Lindsay Lohan knows. She'll probably get blamed for it.

Two of the slickest superstars on the planet are pitted against each other in this Fashion Face-Off.

First, we have LL Cool J, the host of the 2012 Grammy Awards, who had the unenviable task last night of MCing an event over which a pall had been cast, due to Whitney Houston's tragic death. But the actor/rapper kicked off the ceremony with a prayer and handled his duties as well as could be expected.

His competition? Bruno Mars, producer/performer extraordinaire, and possibly the most talented man in the music business today.

Compare. Contrast. And vote between these icons below:

Sincere prayer on a Hollywood stage? You don't see that every day, but Sunday was not an average day. At the beginning of the 2012 Grammy Awards, host LL Cool J paid tribute to Whitney Houston, who died the previous day at 48.

"There's no way around this," he said, addressing a silent crowd. "We've had a death in our family, and so at least for me, the only thing that feels right is to begin with a prayer for a woman we loved, for our fallen sister, Whitney Houston."

Watch LL Cool J's prayer for Whitney Houston below:

After the NCIS: Los Angeles star finished, a video of Houston singing her hit "I Will Always Love You" played. "Whitney, we will always love you," he continued.

"And we'll remember you the best way we know how – with a song."

Jennifer Hudson's performance of the song honored Houston later in the telecast.

What did you think of LL's prayerful tribute?

Taylor Swift rules the world of pop music and country music.

But she might want to leave the rapping up to the host of the 2012 Grammy Awards.

In a great new commercial for that February 12 ceremony, Swift stands alongside LL Cool J and tries to beat box along with the NCIS: Los Angeles star - but quickly realizes she's in way over her cute blonde head. Still, Taylor should not lose all hope: she does a pretty mean Eminem, after all.

The Ladies might Love Cool James, but does LL Cool J love them back?

No, according to Toni Newman, a former transsexual prostitute who writes in a new book, excerpted in the latest issue of Hip Hop Weekly, that the rapper/NCIS: Los Angeles star was once his client!

Is LL Cool J Gay?

"I had sex with LL Cool J," Newman claims in his memoir. "For a street prostitute doing fifty-dollar blow jobs and hundred dollar hotel dates, he gave me five times more that I had already made... I wasn't aware until we got into the encounter and the glasses came off that he was in fact LL Cool J. We were a versatile group, and when I say versatile, that means the other person gives and receives."

We wonder how LL will respond to this allegation. If he takes the advice of his Mama, Newman will soon be knocked out.

Rapper-actor LL Cool J is far from pleased about what he describes as an old interview of his being lifted to promote Sarah Palin's interview special tonight.

Palin's Fox News special, entitled Real American Stories, features the former Governor chronicling lives of "people who have overcome adversity and more."

Among tonight's success stories: country star Toby Keith, former GE Chairman Jack Welch, a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor and LL Cool J.

The problem LL Cool J has with it? He never sat down with the show. Now the star of NCIS: Los Angeles, LL (James Todd Smith) tweeted on Wednesday:

"Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else and are now misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palin's Show. WOW."

Wow is right.

Real American Story or not, LL Cool J takes issue with tonight's show.

When contacted for comment, Fox News explained that LL Cool J had been informed in 2008 that the interview was planned as a segment for Real American Stories, though and the network couldn't have known Palin would be hosting in 2010.

The Fox spokesperson also said in a statement:

"Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and believe Mr. Smith's interview fit that criteria. However, it appears Mr. Smith doesn't want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, so we're cutting his interview and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."

Fledgling? Cold, Fox. Cold.

We suggest a true American hero take his place: Levi Johnston.
