Hugh Jackman takes his Wolverine(s) alliance seriously.
The Academy Award-nominated actor is well-known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men movies. Jackman also happens to have a fondness for the Wolverines of Michigan.
Following Michigan’s Big Ten Tournament title on Sunday, Jackman congratulated John Beilein’s basketball team in a tweet. “What an awesome effort!” Jackman wrote, after Michigan topped Wisconsin for its fourth win in as many days.

Jackman’s maize-and-blue affection is nothing new. He’s tweeted about the Wolverines before, once during the basketball team’s run through the NCAA Tournament in 2013 and again that year when Michigan met Ohio State on the football field.

Perhaps Jim Harbaugh can get Jackman to Ann Arbor some day as a honorary captain — Wolverine claws optional for the coin toss.
