Eleven years after first hosting the Oscars, Chris Rock might be taking on the big role for a second time.
According to Variety, the actor is in talks to host the 88th Academy Awards. Per the news outlet, the award show’s new co-producer, Reginald Hudline, was the director of Rock’s sitcom, Everybody Hates Chris. And based on the former success of the show, we’d say Hudlin and Rock would be a match made in heaven.
During an interview last month, Hudlin and fellow producer David Hill told Variety that they had already begun “discussing potential hosts, looking at the possibilities of a solo performer or a combination of people for the duties.”
Chris has remained mum on the reports, but a formal announcement will be made soon.
When Rock hosted the Oscars back in 2005, he made a few controversial jokes about actors Tobey Maguire and Jude Law, whom he questioned why he was in so many films. But then again, what do you expect when you have a comedian on stage.
The 2016 Oscars will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 28, 2016.
Do you think Chris would be a great host this year?
