According to Deadline, Chris Rock and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have been approached about hosting the 2022 Emmys in September.

This comes after Will Smith went viral after slapping Chris at the Oscars earlier this year. Chris went on a comedy tour following the incident, where he made some jokes about Will, but he has yet to sit down and fully address the situation. In April, Rock told a crowd at one of his shows, “I’m OK, I have a whole show and I’m not talking about that until I get paid. Life is good. I got my hearing back.”

According to Deadline, Chris has turned down the informal offer to host the Emmys. The report also casts doubt on The Rock hosting the awards show. Johnson is currently executive producer of the comedy series Young Rock, and he will be promoting his upcoming DC film Black Adam later this year.
