Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx and Michael Douglas are just the latest presenters announced for the 2013 Oscars, as news that the James Bond actors will not share the stage this Sunday.
First, let’s start with the James Bond news. Lest we all get depressed that, contrary to previous rumors, the James Bond actors will not reunite on the Oscars stage this year. Telecast co-producer Craig Zadan told Deadline, “It’s something else, something very unique and very exciting but no, we’re not getting the Bonds together.”
While this is certainly a bit disappointing, we’re now quite intrigued what they’ve got planned to pay homage to the Bond franchise. Apart from Adele’s sure-to-be-amazing performance of “Skyfall.”
In other Oscars related news, according to a press release from earlier this morning, Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx and Michael Douglas have all been added to the growing list of presenters for the telecast. Foxx has won as Oscar for his performance in Ray, while Douglas has two Oscars, one for Best Actor in Wall Street. Rudd and Aniston, meanwhile, appeared together in last year’s comedy Wanderlust.
