I know you! Check out who Hugh ran into!!

  • Hugh Jackman was at the Zurich Film Festival where he was being honored when he bumped into one of his old students
  • Jackman was a substitute gym teacher before he became a big star
  • Former student Rollo Ross tells Showbiz Tonight what it was like reuniting with Jackman

What was supposed to be an ordinary night for freelance TV reporter Rollo Ross really turned into an extraordinary moment.

Ross was working the red carpet at the Zurich Film Festival when he ran into his former gym teacher, Hugh Jackman. Instead of talking about being honored at the festival, Jackman wanted to reminisce with Ross!

Ross posted a video of their conversation on his Facebook page to share with his friends, and the next thing he knew the video went viral!

Showbiz Tonight goes one-on-one with Ross to see what it was like running into his old teacher in Switzerland.

And just how old was Jackman when he was a gym teacher?  You have to watch Showbiz Tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN to find out!
