Garfield told the outlet that Holland is the kind of guy that can do anything that he puts his mind to.

“And I would certainly be curious to see how he was as an Oscars host,” he told the outlet. “He’s so charming, and he’s such a showman, and he’s such a song-and-dance, triple-threat actor. I would be very, very confident in his confidence.”

Garfield’s confidence in Holland comes after it was announced that there will be a host at the 2022 Oscars for the first time in three years.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association virtual press tour, Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment President Craig Erwich revealed that the network is currently on the hunt for a pop culture savvy host to helm the show for the first time since Jimmy Kimmel did the job for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Holland recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he was too busy to host the Oscars, but quickly backtracked.

“‘Of course I would host the f—ing Oscars!” he told the outlet.

“I just went to the bathroom, and I was looking at myself in the mirror, and I was like, ‘What kind of f—ing idiot wouldn’t host the Oscars?’” he explained. “So yeah, if they ask me to, I would, and it would be very fun. I would really enjoy it.”
