Producers confirmed that James Franco and Anne Hathaway will host the 83rd annual Academy Awards this year.
Oscar telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Muscher stated, “James Franco and Anne Hathaway personify the next generation of Hollywood icons – fresh, exciting and multi-talented.”
Franco recently earned raves for his latest movie, 127 Hours, where he plays Aron Ralston, a man who gets his arm stuck under a boulder and cuts a piece of it off. Franco’s other films include Eat, Pray, Love and Pineapple Express.
Hathaway’s latest film, Love and Other Drugs, is also getting hype. Two years ago, Hathaway performed a musical number with Hugh Jackman when he hosted the Oscars.
Catch the 83rd annual Oscars on ABC on February 27.
