He's reportedly "on the fence" about the commitment, which is probably due to a rather full plate full of music, fashion and, of course, being one half of everyone's most photographed couple, Kimye.

Meanwhile, Mariah Carey pitched good friend Lenny Kravitz for the gig, while network executives are rumored to have narrowed down the list to Brad Paisley, Keith Urban or Enrique Iglesias.
