Two weeks before X-Men Origins: Wolverine will be unleashed into theaters, Hugh Jackman sank his hands and feet into the famous Hollywood Boulevard cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.

After an introduction by Jay Leno, Jackman told the crowd that he’d first visited the landmark when he originally arrived in L.A. a dozen years ago. “It’s a very humbling moment as an actor to be here. You look down at the names, from Fred Astaire to Cary Grant, Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino, Steve McQueen, John Wayne, and to think that those people have been immortalized and pretty soon I’ll be putting my hands in wet cement,” Jackman said.
