10 Reasons Hugh Jackman would make a great James Bond

Jan 11, 2016 at 8:40 p.m. ET

Hugh Jackman has got everyone's knickers in a twist, by posting a very intriguing video on his Twitter account.

"Shaken, not stirred," reads the caption along with a short video of the star sipping from a martini glass. Could this really mean that he's dropping a bombshell of a hint about being the next Bond? People sure do seem to think so.

As if Jackman's short video wasn't a big clue in itself, some social media movie fiends have pointed out that the video goes for seven seconds, 0:07 seconds to be exact. 007! My goodness, it must be true.

Last year, the Aussie favourite told news program The Project that he had been offered the role as Bond before, but it just didn't fit with his schedule. Pierce Brosnan landed the job instead.

"Ah, I don't think [it was] the right time," Jackman said in the interview. "But it was not an easy one to give up."

Could this really mean he's finally landed the role? Let's hope so.

I'm not the only one who thinks Jackman would make a truly delectable James Bond, but let's count the ways he'd be perfect for it anyway.
