Justin Timberlake reportedly wants to host the upcoming 88th Academy Awards next year.
According to a source, the Mirrors hitmaker, who has taken the last few months off to bond with his five-month-old son Silas, is eager to make a splash when he returns to the spotlight and thinks hosting the prestigious awards ceremony on February 28, 2016 is the perfect platform for him, reports femalefirst.co.uk
"Justin is campaigning hard with producers and is billing himself as the total package. He's playing up the fact that he's a singer, dancer and actor. Plus he bridges the gap between old and young," the source told Star magazine.
"Justin says he's not scared that so many hosts, like Neil Patrick Harris, ended up bombing. Producers are starting to agree that his confidence may just be the magic touch," the source added.
