Earlier today, we heard that next year’s Oscars show producer Brett Ratner wants Eddie Murphy to host the show, because after directing him in Tower Heist he thinks that Eddie is the ONLY man for the job!
While we’ve been conditioned to be skeptical about nearly everything Eddie Murphy-related over the years, we were thinking that this could be his chance to prove us wrong and turn it all around.
Looks like he’s going to get that chance, because he’s reportedly officially agreed to host the 84th Academy Awards!
Let’s do this thing, Eddie! Remind us why we loved you in Coming to America, Trading Places, and Beverly Hills Cop!
