Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.

Our girl NAILED it her first time hosting back in 2006. And two years later, Hugh Jackman didn't do so bad himself as the master of ceremonies for Hollywood's biggest night!
This week, the Wolverine star stopped by Ellen's show to share notes on what it's like up there, all alone on that stage, knowing that over a BILLION people are watching!
"Sure! I'd love to. But unlike you, I'd want to be unemployed at the time. Which is a weird thing for an actor to say!"
Ellen plans on prepping for her big night at the Oscars while STILL working everyday on her talk show!
Mr. Jackman thinks that is just BONKERS and the superhero stunner offered to rescue her, if she ever needs him to fill in for her!
He offered to take over for Ellen on her show while she prepares for the Academy Awards! And Ellen seemed keen to the idea!
So will we see our Aussie hunk sitting in for the funny lady this March???
Ch-ch-check out the video above to see Hugh and Ellen work out an agreement!
