Hugh Jackman has reportedly turned down an offer to host the 2011 Oscars.
According to website Deadline.com, Oscarcast executive producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer approached the X-Men star with an offer to host the 83rd Academy Awards.
Jackson, who also reportedly opted out of hosting the awards ceremony last year – because he didn’t want to take the reins two years in a row – says he’ll be too busy filming X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2.
Deadline reports that Wolverine 2 will be filmed in late February, which clashes with the February 27, 2011 broadcast of the Oscars.
Steve Martin took on the hosting duties last year, with a little help from Alec Baldwin.
So who will host next year?
Movieline.com has some suggestions:
Neil Patrick Harris
