Tonys start with a spring in Hugh Jackman's step

NEW YORK (AP) -- Hugh Jackman has kicked off the Tony Awards with a bounce, hopping up and down like a kangaroo during his opening number as he made his way to the Radio City Music Hall stage.

The bearded Australian, back as host Sunday after a nine-year absence, greeted many of the night's featured performers as he bounded past them backstage. He then joined the cast of the musical "After Midnight" for a rousing rendition of "It Don't Mean a Thing (If it Ain't Got that Swing)."

The first award of the night was for best featured actor in a play and it went to Mark Rylance, who won his third Tony for playing Olivia in "Twelfth Night." Rylance, who previously won for "Jerusalem" and "Boeing-Boeing," also is nominated for "Richard III."
