Wolverine will host the Oscars

Our chums at Total Film are reporting that Hugh Jackman, who we're looking forward to seeing in 2009's X-Men Origins movie, will be hosting the next Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ceremony. The man who brings Wolverine to life - currently starring on screen in Baz Luhrmann's Australia - is an unusual choice because it’s not often actors are selected to host on their own. The next Oscars ceremony is on 22 February 2009.

Do you think Hugh Jackman is the right man for the job? Are you looking forward to X-Men Origins: Wolverine ? And who do you think should be picking up the Oscars themselves - any predictions? Let the world know in the comment thread below!
