Though Alec Baldwin's name has been floated of late as a possible late-night television host, you can probably cross him off the list of likely hosts for the 2014 Oscars.
Baldwin, who hosted the 2010 telecast with Steve Martin, had some pointed things to say about the Motion Picture Academy and the Oscars in a free-wheeling interview in the Hollywood Reporter tied to his current run on Broadway in the play "Orphans."
Baldwin told the magazine he would “never, never, never” do it again and that “the Oscars is a completely thankless job.”
This year's show, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, ran more than 3 1/2 hours but drew the best ratings since the Martin-Baldwin broadcast, video of which is below. Ideally, however, Baldwin thinks the Academy Awards telecast would “last about two hours, and it would be a very tight show with a lot of serious, cineastic appreciation.”
