Ever since Bob Hope hosted the 12th Academy Awards ceremony in 1940, comedians tend to host the show each year. However, in an effort to appeal to younger viewers, this year the Academy has booked actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway.
Franco's dramatic portrayal of a mountain climber in "127 Hours" earned him a nomination for Best Actor this year. Two years ago, Hathaway was nominated for her difficult role in "Rachel Getting Married." However, both have proven during their careers that they have comedy chops in addition to their acting skills and dashing looks.
The following videos are pulled from Franco and Hathaway's funniest acting roles.
