The 'Prisoners' actor will take the lead in the annual holiday special, where Backstreet Boys, Sheryl Crow and Janelle Monae will perform for the Obamas.

Hugh Jackman is in the mood of Christmas. The Logan/Wolverine depicter in the "X-Men" film franchise is tapped to host TNT's annual holiday spectacular "Christmas in Washington", set to air Friday, December 20, at 8 P.M. ET/PT.

The special will be taped at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, December 15. The concert benefiting the Children's National Health System will be attended by the President and First Lady, as well as many other Washington VIPs.

Booked as musical performers this year are Backstreet Boys, Sheryl Crow, Anna Kendrick, Janelle Monae and Train's Pat Monahan. NBA Hall of Famer and analyst for TNT's "Inside the NBA" Charles Barkley will also make a special guest appearance.

Jackman graced the big screen last summer through box office hit "The Wolverine" and the critically-acclaimed "Prisoners". His professional life aside, the Golden Globe and Tony Award-winning actor has recently revealed that he had been diagnosed with skin cancer on his nose and had it removed.
