The official big sell of Baz Luhrmann’s epic Australia began in the US on October 23rd with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman recording an exclusive episode with daytime TV host Oprah Winfrey. The Aussies flew to Winfrey’s studios in Chicago, with Jackman apparently excited about making his first appearance on the show. Earlier speculation said the internationally renowned chat show host would fly to Sydney to stage her own showcase on local soil, however due to other commitments it wasn’t to be.
A show that reportedly will be making the journey is the team at Good Morning America. It is speculated that they will film an entire weeks worth of shows on location in Australia. Other shows expressing interest in visiting down under include, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show and British morning program GMTV.
