No, Starsky & Holmes won’t be hosting the Oscars.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ newly selected producers Adam Shankman & Bill Mechanic went to Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr and asked them to host as a duo. It would have been a killer combo. But the answer was no. (Deadline Hollywood)
Thank. God. Downey alone or with another sharp partner would have been terrific. Ben Stiller is not enough Tenenbaum and way too much Focktard for me.
I can already hear the distant rumblings of Topic Thunder.
