John Travolta to poke fun at himself at the 2015 Oscars

2014-12-31 20:00

Los Angles - John Travolta has agreed to poke fun at himself at the 2015 Oscars.

The Grease! actor infamously read Let It Go singer Idina Menzel's name as Adele Dazeem at the 2014 Academy Awards and he has agreed to spoof the gaffe during a sketch with next year's host Neil Patrick Harris.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Neil and his team want to reference the moment at this year's awards and John was happy to send himself up. There's even talk of getting Idina involved.

"Neil loves song and dance numbers so don't be surprised to see the two serenade each other.

"John is also set to present an award or introduce a performance, so he'll brush up on his pronunciations."

Idina - who voices Elsa in Frozen - has previously admitted the 60-year-old actor apologised for his mistake.

She said: ''I heard it, I did. But I don't want to keep saying it as I don't want John to feel worse. He's apologised."

Presenter Neil has previously said he wanted to work with "funny" writers for the Academy Awards, though he admitted he was unsure what else he wanted to do during the ceremony.

He has said: ''I legitimately have no idea what the content of the show will be yet.

"I'm just thankful that I get to be a part of it this year.

"We are actively hiring writers so if you know anyone funny, Tweet me." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
