Hathaway and Franco to host the Oscars?

Anne Hathaway and James Franco will host the Academy Awards.  Do you like the sound of that?  Let it simmer because according to Deadline, who’s  usually never wrong, that could be the official announcement in the coming days.

In a brief article written this morning, Nicki Finke explains that both actors have been approached about hosting the festivities and are very interested in the job. Am I the only one that finds this pairing random? Granted, Hathaway was absolutely everything in her performance with Hugh Jackman at the 81st Academy Awards but can she give us that same life for over three hours? Same goes for Franco, who is likely to be nominated;  can he handle the task of host and possible nominee?

The Academy should be applauded for trying to go in a ‘younger’ direction; however, was Timberlake not available?
