Jennifer Lawrence Can’t Wait to Meet Al Roker

On CNN’s Oscar red carpet special, Piers Morgan has been asking his guests who they’re most excited to see. Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, Daniel Day-Lewis would top the list, but when Morgan asked Oscar-nominee Jennifer Lawrence, she only had one man on her mind:  ”I want to see Al Roker. I used to watch him every day before school.”

Al Roker?,” Morgan shot back. “Of all the people you could possibly see, Al Roker?” “It means something to me personally,” said Lawrence, “Every morning he’s happy.”

Roker is reporting from Hollywood tonight for tomorrow’s “Today” show.

Following the Lawrence interview, Morgan chatted with Dustin Hoffman, who had some nice words about his CNN show: “God bless you for what you’re saying about gun control,” said Hoffman.

A few minutes after that, Morgan grabbed his “former boss” News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch. After chatting about some of the 20th Century Fox-nominated movies, Morgan couldn’t resist asking: “How do you feel about CNN doing so well against Fox at the moment?”

“I think we’re okay, I think we’ll survive,” Murdoch laughed. “I think you probably will,” said Morgan.
