A Twitter follower named @buffa82 tweeted, "If the Academy is so inclined to line up a great host for next year's Oscars just pick @TheRock."
The Rock responded that the Academy actually asked him to do it this year but scheduling did not permit. He is currently shooting Jumanji and hopes to be asked in the future.
This year's Oscars will be host-less for the first time in 30 years.
In place of one host the Academy will use various celebrities to introduce the different segments.
