Choreographer-turned-director Adam Shankman
has been tapped to co-produce this year’s Oscar telecast. The Hairspray
director and So You Think You Can Dance
judge will take the reins with movie executive Bill Mechanic. A fact my brosefs and I are way stoked about.
I can imagine it now. A long game of touch football in the park, then a nice walk in the crisp winter air, quick stop-off for some tapas and then me and the bros will all curl up and see how the Shank-Man can butch up the Academy Awards
. I mean, did you see Zac Efron’s Pool Party
? That was a machismo fiesta. Reminded me of my fraternity days. (Variety
