Franco and Hathaway in Oscar promo spot
Saturday 29 January 2011
Oscar hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway offer a peek at what's in store with a television ad for the upcoming Academy Awards show, airing February 27 on ABC-TV and other stations worldwide.
Playing "hosts in-training," the two actors do a mock practice including what to do in the event of a wardrobe malfunction.
Perhaps they will play it straight during the show, but the humorous promo spot is designed to attract younger fans of the actors to watch the ceremony.
Franco is nominated as Best Actor for his role as hiker Aron Ralston in Danny Boyle's drama 127 Hours. In 2010, Hathaway starred in Tim Burton's 3D fantasy Alice in Wonderland and the romantic comedy Love and Other Drugs.
Hathaway appeared in the opening number of the Oscars with Hugh Jackman when he co-hosted the Oscars in 2009. He will be one of the presenters in 2011.
