Ellen DeGeneres Angles For Role In “Bridesmaids” Sequel

LOS ANGELES (December 20, 2013) Returning Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres says she's working with "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig to promote the Academy Awards because she's angling for a part in the "Bridesmaids" sequel, even though no sequel has yet been announced.

In a video released late Thursday by the film academy, DeGeneres, 55, said, "Two plus two: great Oscar promo, 'Bridesmaids 2,' cha-ching!"

Feig has demurred about a "Bridemaids" sequel since the movie's groundbreaking success in 2011.

The director's most recent film, summer's "The Heat" with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, also blasted box office expectations and inspired rumors of a sequel.
