He is now ready to make his move: Crystal says he'd "consider" a return to hosting the Oscars. The plan is clicking into place nicely.
The eight-time Academy Awards host said he was moved by his warm
reception at last month's ceremony and that "it might be fun" to host
the show again.
"I think the show needs to change," he said. "There's
too many awards and it has to sort of freshen itself up, and if I can
be a part of that, that would be great."
Excellent, Crystal says, tapping his fingers together. My precious ... my precious ...
By the way: Did you realize that Crystal hasn't been in a movie since "Analyze That" in 2002? He took a decade off!
