Steve Martin is co-hosting the Academy Awards this year, and the shenanigans are already starting. He and Alec Baldwin, the other co-host, joked Steve had actually tried to avoid being involved with the show alongside him, and that they're going to rig the awards. Boys will be boys!

Steve Martin (Bauer Griffin) Alec said: “They actually went to him first and said, 'Would you do it with Alec?' He said, 'Of course, I won't do it with Alec.' "

Steve countered: "I actually said, 'Yes, I would do it with Alec,' assuming he would pass and I was safe."

Alec added: "You were playing chicken with your own career."

The acting duo also joked they would fix it so their movie It’s Complicated win the coveted Best Picture prize at the ceremony. Steve told the USA Today newspaper: "Oh yeah, we can cheat. ‘And the winner is... It's Complicated, even if it's not nominated."

Steve has previously hosted the 2001 and 2003 Oscars broadcast, while Alec was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2003 for The Cooler.
