Hosting the Oscars is no easy task. You have to be entertaining, funny, and upbeat, but not too offensive. Pop culture savvy, smart, engaging, but not off-putting. Plus you have to do it in front of literally the most famous audience of people ever assembled, every single year. Many have tried and succeeded. Others have crashed and burned. Some do fine, and then quietly go off into the sunset.
Most people feel that’s what’ll happen to Neil Patrick Harris after hosting the 87th annual Academy Awards this year. His hosting duties received reviews that were all over the map, all but guaranteeing producers don’t ask him back. If they don’t go with one of their tried and true standbys like Billy Crystal, Steve Martin or Ellen DeGeneres, who could be next? Below, we pick 15 people who would make a great 2016 Oscar host.

Dwayne Johnson won’t be playing Black Adam for several years. The movie, Shazam, isn’t scheduled to come out until April 5, 2019 which conservatively means it won’t start filming until early 2018. Maybe three years from now. And in the meantime, the action superstar will be in many other movies. Nevertheless, he’s thinking a lot about playing the super villain or, as he calls him the “anti-hero.”
In a new interview, Johnson talked about the character, and the character’s potential to show down with Batman and Superman. Read the latest Dwayne Johnson Black Adam quotes below. Read More »

They say you always hurt the one you love, and movie studios love to destroy the town in which they reside.

Did that Starbucks mess up your latte again? Drop it into a chasm! Here, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a search and rescue pilot who has to put in overtime when the Big One finally rocks California to its foundations.

Californians have been waiting decades for the Big One, the massive earthquake expected to rock the San Andreas fault at a magnitude of 7.0 or greater on the Richter scale. As of now, there’s no telling when the event might hit — at least in real life. In the movies, we already know there’s a catastrophe due to land next summer.
Dwayne Johnson leads Brad Peyton‘s San Andreas as Ray, a helicopter rescue pilot who’s in the air when the Big One arrives. He tries to track down his daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) along with his ex-wife Emma (Carla Gugino), as destruction rains down around them. See the new San Andreas images after the jump.

These days, there’s frankly not much Dwayne Johnson isn’t doing. Revitalizing franchises like Fast and Furious, Journey or G.I. Joe? Check. Headlining a big summer action movie? Check. Spy movie? Check. Big buddy action comedy? Check. Tongue in cheek remake? Check. Hell, Johnson is even going to be a super villain pretty soon. Really the only thing Johnson hasn’t done is a big Disney movie and, well, that’s next.
Johnson is in talks to provide a voice in Moana, one of Disney Animation’s big 2016 releases set in the South Pacific which “follows the title navigator as she sets sail in search of a fabled island.” Read more about the Dwayne Johnson Moana casting below. Read More »
Dwayne Johnson recently tweeted a photo of him reading the script for his next movie. He described it as a “big action comedy” and said his co-star would soon be revealed. That’s now happened.

They’ll co-star in a buddy action comedy called Central Intelligence, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re The Millers). Read More »
