So long, Conan O’Brien; hello, Wolverine. Hugh Jackman will helm TNT’s annual Christmas in Washington concert Dec. 15, the network said Thursday. Filmed at the National Building Museum with the president and first lady, this year’s eclectic line-up features Pat Monahan from Train, the Backstreet Boys, Sheryl Crow, Janelle Monáe and Anna Kendrick. Jackman as host? That’s kind of random, because for the past several years, the hosts (O’Brien, George Lopez)  have usually had ties to TNT’s sister network TBS. Meanwhile, Jackman also made news Thursday when he announced he had recently been treated for skin cancer, prompted by his wife’s telling him to get a “mark” on his nose checked out. Presumably, all is well and he’ll be gorgeous next month.
