I was geeking out when it was announced that Oscar hosting duties would go to Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin this year — all signs, including Adam Shankman's production of the event in March, point to this being a fun and hopefully outrageous night. Yesterday, though, a rumor popped up about the hosts: supposedly, producers are considering adding a third host to the Martin/Baldwin lineup.
Even though Martin and Baldwin were already enough for me, I could see throwing in a third musketeer — provided it's the right one. I would love to see a woman stir up the funny pair, and I think Tina Fey (who already played against them on 30 Rock) would be the logical choice.
But I would love to see everyone's favorite former Tonight Show host, Conan O'Brien, help out and show NBC what they'll soon be missing (the festivities are on ABC, so yeah). Who would you want to watch joking with Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin? A comic? Another actor?
