From hanging out with Hugh Jackman to a (surprising) number of sheep photographs, “Murdoch Here” is a behind-the-scenes look at the News Corp. chief.

If News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch’s Twitter account has amplified his outsized personality, could his Tumblr reveal him in his quieter moments?

Murdoch’s chief of staff, Natalie Ravitz, has been curating “Murdoch Here” for several months, describing it as a glimpse behind the scenes with the globetrotting media mogul, whether he be in London, New York, Sydney or Los Angeles.

“And, wherever he is, those who work for him know the phone can always ring and they'll hear ... ‘Murdoch here,’" she writes.

The Tumblr's entry features the charming (Murdoch with his sons and drinking milkshakes with a colleague), the poignant (the mogul mourning his mother) and the goofy (Murdoch sporting Wolverine claws and spotting a baby wallaby).
