“Sexiest Man Alive” to host Oscars

Story here.

I was hoping for Eddie Izzard.

Or Stephen Colbert.

Or John Stewart again.

Oh well. Now I know that my wife will watch the Oscars with me, for a change.

    I was actually hoping for Ricky Gervais after the terrific bit he did with Steve Carell at the Emmys this year. Oh well. It’ll be interesting to see a different approach.

    Nikke Finke has an interesting explanation of the choice on Deadline Hollywood Daily. She totally called it! :)
