Seth MacFarlane’s Biggest Oscar Challenge Involves His Pool Guy

MacFarlaneOscarInterviewMore good stuff from Seth MacFarlane ahead of the 85th Annual Academy Awards. In an AMPAS interview, the host says he might go “off the rails” by wearing two slightly different black socks. He also had a surprising answer when asked what his biggest challenge as host will be:

“Biggest challenge is going to be getting there on time. I think it starts at 5:30 and I have, like, a 4:15 with my pool guy to talk about resurfacing part of the hot tub. And so, I think, if that goes long, it’s going to be tight…”

“I’m hoping it’s not like a hard 5:30. But if it is, I’m in trouble.”

The Clown Prince of animated TV  keeps deadpan-riffing all the way through. He says SNL was the first time he did a show sober and that he is contemplating the same approach on Feb. 24. Or not. Watch the full interview here.
