But the Family Guy creator won't return to the stage to host next year's show, he revealed in a series of Tweets on Monday.
"Traumatized critics exhale: I'm unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep," he wrote.
"However, I highly recommend the job, as Zadan and Meron are two of the most talented producers in the business. My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix," he Tweeted.
