Hugh Jackman Reportedly Turned Down Oscar-Hosting Gig

Hugh Jackman reportedly turned down an offer from Oscarcast executive producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer to host the 83rd Academy Awards. Jackman said he's too busy with X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2, to be directed by Darren Aronofsky, around February. Last year, the Academy set its host November 3, so the search is on. Any suggestions? Rumor has it that this is where the Cohen/Mischer brain trust goes for inspiration. [Deadline]
