Bad news for those of you eagerly anticipating "We Saw Your Boobs: Part Two." Seth MacFarlane will not reprise his role as the host of the Academy Awards next March, the comedian announced on his Twitter account Monday.
"Traumatized critics exhale: I'm unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep," wrote "The Family Guy" creator. "However, I highly recommend the job, as Zadan and Meron are two of the most talented producers in the business."
MacFarlane was referring to Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who produced the show in February and will again do the job in 2014.
A publicist for MacFarlane said the star's tweet "is our only comment" and declined to say whether or not the producers had officially asked the actor-filmmaker to host again. MacFarlane's hosting gig was met with mixed reviews from critics; The Times' Mary McNamara said he "was occasionally crude and mildly offensive; unfortunately, he wasn't very funny."
It remains to be seen who will step into the ring next for the hosting gig, though MacFarlane had his own idea: "My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix," he said.
We have a feeling Phoenix wouldn't be interested in that carrot.
