This should be inneresting…
Eddie Murphy is in talks to host the 2012 Academy Awards and it's all thanks to the next year's Oscar show producer Brett Ratner.
He just finished directing Eddie in Tower Heist and thinks that the comedian is the ONLY man for the job.
Brett is scheduled to meet Academy President Tom Sherak this week and plans on letting the Academy know exactly who he wants to see on that stage next year.
An insider involved with the show, says:
"Nobody knows movies better or is a bigger cinephile than Eddie. Not Brett. Not even Quentin Tarantino. Eddie can quote scenes from every single movie word for word. He can bring all that experience to hosting. Plus he has Saturday Night Live experience before a live crowd. And worldwide the biggest crossover comedians are Will Smith and Eddie Murphy."
Seems like a good fit! We could totally get behind this idea.
What do U think of Eddie hosting the Oscars next year??
