Neil Patrick Harries on Hosting the Next Oscars

Neil Patrick Harris is opening up about his next big gig: the host of the 2015 Academy Awards!

During a chat with Entertainment Weekly the actor explained that the whole thing "happened very randomly, at the end of last week, [that it ] was maybe a possibility and to sort of think about it over the weekend and see what happens."

"And then we get a call yesterday…we wanted to come up with a clever way to announce it, which we did on social media."

He also dished about how involved he plans on being in the planning process, saying, "I have a lot of questions still about that job."Harris continued, "I've gotten to be the kind of co-producer of the Emmys while I was hosting, and the Tonys since I've done that a number of times. I'm aware of more things than just the hosting spots…The Oscars is such a gigantic show that I was interested to know how my involvement would play out.

"It seems like with that many eyes and that big of a show there are a lot of people that have to say yes before something gets approved. And is it turns out, that's not really the case."

So what can we expect to see from Harris' Oscars?

"I know what I want them not to be. I don't want them to be super derivative of other shows I've done. I don't want it to seem like I'm doing the same hosting gig as the Tonys," he shared.

He also hinted at some big dreams of his for the big event…

"I don't know if you say, 'I think I should do a thing with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie,' then because it's the Oscars do they say yes? We have talked about nothing but it'll be interested to find out."
