Is Larry King the Next Wolverine?

Hugh Jackman has said he'll no longer play iconic X-Men character Wolverine. So Larry King steps in to try to fill his (very large) boots.

On Conan last week, a number of bold-faced names showed up to an open audition for Wolverine, as Hugh Jackman announced he was taking his retractable claws off the market. While Jackman has carried the beastly character through no fewer than eight X-Men films, he's said it's "inevitable" that he'll be replaced. But who could fill his big hairy boots? 

Will it be Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch, or comedian Patton Oswalt -- or Betty White and a certain secret weapon the nonagenarian possesses? Nah, we are pretty sure Larry King has this one in the bag. Check out the clip below from Conan and let us know who you think should play Wolverine next!

Conan wasn't Larry's only comedy spot last week -- for more check out Chat Stew on the most recent episode of The Soup with Joel McHale on E!.
