The Academy announced Monday that they are adding two presenters to this Sunday's 83rd Academy Awards show in Los Angeles. Scarlett Johansson has been added to the roster, along with newcomer Russell Brand.
I'm guessing when they said, "Scarlett Johansson" everyone perked up, and when they followed with " Russell Brand", the room collectively went silent.
Brand will be seen in the upcoming remake of Arthur, where he plays a lonely, drunk playboy searching for love. The original role was played by British actor Dudely Moore.
I feel bad for constantly picking on Brand, but come on! If Katy Perry wants to know what she'll look like as an old woman, she just needs to roll over in bed and check this guy out.
The Oscars will take place February 27th at the Kodak theatre in Hollywood.
