Neil Patrick Harris will host this year's Academy Awards ceremony on February 22nd. Though Harris has become a master of ceremonies extraordinaire in recent years, this will be his first stint helming the Oscars. Variety reports:
Harris has performed on the Academy Awards show, but this will be his first time as host. Harris has hosted the Tony Awards last year and Emmy in 2013 and 2009, so with Oscar, he is apparently going for the EGOT sweep of hosts. (All that remains is Grammy.) He is appearing in Fox’s B.O. hit “Gone Girl.” He has won four Emmys and this year took home a Tony for the lead role in the musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”

Rosamund Pike, one of the stars of David Fincher's latest thriller Gone Girl, sat down with Seth Meyers to promote the movie and shared what it's like filming a sex scene with co-star Neil Patrick Harris.
