LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ellen DeGeneres wants to be in "Bridesmaids 2."
The returning Oscar host 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 such film has been announced.
In a video released late Thursday by the film academy, the 55-year-old funny woman says: "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.
