Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin to Co-Host Academy Awards

by at . Comments

One is a comedian that plays the banjo.

The other is an actor that utters the funniest 30 Rock quotes - nay, the funniest quotes, period! - on television.

Together, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will host the 2010 Academy Awards.

"I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin," Martin, who has hosted the event twice before, said in a statement.

Replied Baldwin: "I don't play the banjo, but I'm thrilled to be hosting the Oscars – it's the opportunity of a lifetime."

"We think the team of Steve and Alec are the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars," said show producers Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic. "Steve will bring the experience of having hosted the show in the past and Alec will be a completely fresh personality for this event."

Hey, as long as he leaves he doesn't leave any messages during the event, Balwin is an inspired choice.
