Family Guy funnyman Seth MacFarlane will be hosting the 2013 Oscars.
Although he's famous for producing the funny American cartoon sitcom, Seth has been expanding his horizons.
He made his directiorial debut earlier this year with Ted, which took more than £420 million at the Box Office.
The 38-year-old's presentation of an award at the Emmys last month also proved popular.
This will be the first time Seth will present the awards, which are in their 85th year.
"I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors. . .and I hope they don’t find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen roast," he said.
Nominations for the ceremony will be announced on January 10, 2012, nearly a week earlier than usual and ahead of the the Golden Globe ceremony.
