Hugh Jackman Hilariously Fails To Pronounce His Co-Star's Hometown

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 23/02/2016 Bill Bradley

JACKMAN © NBC JACKMAN Hugh Jackman's new movie "Eddie the Eagle" tells the inspirational true story of ski jumper Eddie Edwards, who competed in the Olympics despite the odds being against him.

But, in all honesty, Jackman was a bigger underdog during his appearance on "The Tonight Show" Monday.

Taron Egerton, Jackman's co-star, is from a small town in Wales called "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch." And if you want to know how that's pronounced, just don't ask Jackman or Jimmy Fallon. 

The town made the news late last year when a clip of a weather man correctly pronouncing the name went viral, but there's no such success story here. While attempting to say it, the pair both seem to think Robin Williams' name is somewhere in there.

That's obviously terribly wrong, but at least they made the attempt. To paraphrase Williams' Genie in "Aladdin," 10,000 letters will give you such a crick in the neck.
