Hollywood, Aug 21: 'Wolverine' actor Hugh Jackman is out on a new mission now, but this one has nothing to do with mutants.

The actor has taken up a real-life mission to tackle the issue of fair trade for producers in the developing world, Hello! magazine reported.

Jackman has been out and about in Manhattan in the role of a roving reporter to film a documentary investigating fair trade practices.

The 40-year-old actor and father of two is deeply involved with anti-poverty initiatives. Through this documentary, the star is looking for an answer to questions like "how is it that a kid dies every three seconds from extreme poverty?"

The Australian actor has stunned passersby in New York City by popping into cafes and restaurants unannounced with a camera crew to ask vendors what they know about goods coming from developing countries.
