Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman is set to receive an honorary Tony Award for his outstanding theatre achievements and fund-raising efforts.

The 43-year-old Australian hunk single-handedly raised more than USD 857,740 for Broadway Cares by auctioning off his undershirts after each gig, reported Femalefirst online.

Stage veteran Bernadette Peters will also be presented with a special accolade at this year's Tony awards. He will receive the Isabelle Stevenson Award, which recognises individuals for their humanitarian work.

Nominations for the Tony Awards will be unveiled today and the prize giving will take place in New York on June 10 hosted by funnyman Neil Patrick Harris.
