Looks like those rumors were true after all!
Well, we guess they liked what the Top Five actor was putting on the table because Chris is officially the host for the 88th Academy Awards!
The Saturday Night Live alum hosted the awards show back in 2005, so we're beyond confident in his abilities.
Make sure to catch Chris and the rest of the night's special guests February 28, 2016 at 8pm EST on ABC.
Congrats on the big get, Chris! And same to you, Oscars!
