From Adam Shankman.
"I was concerned Tom was going to blow out his voice, but he’s like a terrier: He bites into it and there’s no shaking him off."
Leslie Mann and Goldie Hawn are interested, too.
Are you scandalized?
On Team Shankman: Joel Madden and some sandwich-maker.
Plus: Opie displeased with probable obituary headline.
"Though Shankman doesn't want to reveal too much, smart money is on a few awards being presented within a dance routine."
Let's hope he uses the occasion to draw awareness to Restless Leg Syndrome.
The Academy "swatted it down" because he would've been "too big of a wild card."
Producers: save list of names for backstage.
Shankman has been pumping so much iron lately, it's a wonder he finds the time to do any Oscar-producing.
"Scenario: what if, due to scheduling, pats isn't avail? Shall we Go Stewart. And lautner? Or no twilighters?"
James Cameron! Harvey Weinstein! Advanced math!
"It wasn’t that she turned us down."
The producers of the 2009 Oscars, Larry Mark and Bill Condon, apparently turned the gig down.
Plus: 'M.A.S.H' sans cross-dressing, and Josh Schwartz takes to the Internet.
