Justin Timberlake to Host the Oscars? Rumors Heating Up

by at . Comments

The 85th Annual Academy Awards have barely ended, and attention has already turned to next year's ceremony.

This week the Academy announced the date of the upcoming awards, which will take place on a bit later than usual on March 2, 2014, so as not to overlap with the Winter Olympics.

Now, rumors are swirling that Justin Timberlake is at the top of the list of potential hosts.

The multi-talented actor/musician has shown that he is more than capable of hosting live television, having hosted Saturday Night Live five times.

For now, the hosting speculation should be stored entirely in the "rumor" bin. This year's host, Seth MacFarlane (who is currently working on A Million Ways to Die in the West) wasn't announced until October 2012.

What do you think? Should JT be given the hosting gig? Could he turn into our new perennial Oscar Host? Let us know in the comments section below!

Justin Timberlake Picture

Justin Timberlake is a famous singer, actor, and music producer born in Memphis, Tennessee.

As a singer, Timberlake got his start with the boy band 'N Sync in 1995.  However, it was his solo career that began in 2002 that has launched him into super stardom.

As an actor, he had a big part in Black Snake Moan and expect for Justin to make you laugh in the upcoming Mike Myer's The Love Guru.

In his personal life, Justin Timberlake had dated Britney Spears pre her going crazy.  Now he's perhaps the luckiest man alive and is dating Jessica Biel.
