Justin Timberlake is taking the world by storm at the moment with a new hit album and a fourth hilarious stint hosting US TV icon Saturday Night Live, and JT's success has now apparently caught the eye of Oscar producers!
According to sources at the National Enquirer, multi-talented Justin is already in talks about the 86th Academy Awards in 2014 despite the 2013 ceremony only just wrapping up. With this year's host Seth MacFarlane insisting he won't be back for a second stint, could JT step into the hosting shoes?
“Getting Justin to host would now be a huge coup for the Oscars. He’d been considered before, but they always thought he was too young and not seasoned enough,” the insider reveals.

Justin has apparently proven he is the man for the job after impressing on SNL: “Now, he’s the frontrunner for the job — after showing he knows how to sing, dance, host, and improvise on the spot."
Don't get too excited though as a source close to the star has played down the rumours insisiting to Gossip Cop that the speculation is “premature and ridiculous,” especially because they haven’t even announced the producers of next year’s ceremony yet.
