According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy reached out to Tom to explore the possibility of him presenting the Oscars after Tom said he would be interested in a hosting gig in a previous interview.
However, although Tom said he would love to host the Oscars it probably won't be anytime soon. He told the publication: "Maybe in the future, but in all honesty, I’m just too busy right now. I don’t have the time.
"I’ve got an Uncharted press tour to do, and then I start shooting in early March for this TV show [Apple TV+’s The Crowded Room] which is going to take up a lot of my time and is definitely the hardest role I’ve ever taken on. So maybe one day in the future. But no, not right now."
Tom continued: "And you know I would love to do that — I love that kind of thing, I love being put under pressure and doing things that I feel uncomfortable doing. So I’m interested in it, but I just don’t have the time."
