Ricky Gervais to host Oscars?

In Film News on August 27, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Providing the word doesn’t end sometime this fall–whether through divine retribution or weather-related armageddon–we may be treated to someone as genuinely funny as “The Office” and “Extras” creator Ricky Gervais as host.

NME reports that Gervais’ agent was approached by ABC, the network that airs the Oscars, to be put on a list of potential hosts.  However, it’s Gervais himself reporting this information; ABC denies it.  (And who can blame them, after Gervais’ “controversial” turn hosting the Golden Globes earlier this year.)

Here’s hoping!
