After reports surfaced that Chris Rock was in talks to host the 88th Academy Awards in February, the actor-comedian confirmed the news on Twitter on Wednesday. “Look who’s back,” Rock tweeted, posting a photo of him holding an Oscar statue.

Rock, who wrote and starred in last year’s Top Five and just directed Amy Schumer’s HBO special, first hosted the annual ceremony in 2005, whenMillion Dollar Baby won Best Picture. He takes over hosting duties from Neil Patrick Harris, who presided over the lowest-rated Oscars telecast in six years.
