Hugh Jackman is concentrating on 'Sesame Street'

Jackman and elmo2 If Hugh Jackman looked the Ministry in the eye and said "concentrate," we'd know precisely where to focus on the "Wolverine" star. Jackman will not be relaying such a message to us, however, but rather to the charming characters on "Sesame Street."

The actor will pay a visit to Big Bird, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and the gang Jan. 27 when he pops by to present the word "concentrate" to the street.

A slew of other stars are gearing up to hit the imaginary block as well:

Kobe Bryant will address the concept of the word "miniature" on Jan. 21.

Christina Applegate will shuffle down the street Jan. 25 with the word "booth," followed a couple of weeks later (yes, Hugh is in the middle) by Debi Mazar with the word "humongous" Feb. 16.

On Feb. 18, the exquisite Eva Longoria Parker will trade Wisteria Lane for the much friendlier street, presenting the word, well, "exquisite." 

Countless celebrities have visited Sesame Street, with recent guests including First Lady Michelle Obama and (our personal fave) singer Jason Mraz, who adapted his hit "I'm Yours" for the fuzzy puppet set.

And for you, too -- we've got the video embedded below, so check it out.
