Hugh Jackman fancies being the next James Bond... and so does Ricky Gervais (possibly)

There's been plenty of rumours circulating regarding who'll be the man to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

Now, a new name appears to have entered the race. Appearing on Australian news programme, The Project, Hugh Jackman admitted he would "seriously consider" if he were to be asked.

It also turns out that Jackman has actually already turned the role down. According to him, he's already been approached for the role earlier in his career, reluctantly passing up on the opportunity.

“I was like, ‘Ah, I don’t think it’s the right time.’ But it was not an easy one to give up,” he admitted.

And maybe Ricky Gervais could be in the frame too. In his latest Vine, he appears to be auditioning for the role.

Nailed on, Ricky.
