According to an interview with director Brett Ratner , when he agreed to produce the Oscars he knew that he needed a comedian and his top choice was Eddie Murphy.
And while there are often water works when the awards are dished out, Ratner might not be prepared for what his Tower Heist star has in store.
“I think it's so funny that people think I'm perfect for this. I'm going to be horrendous. I'm going to be the worst host ever,” Murphy jokingly told Entertainment Tonight while discussing the 84th Academy Awards in 2012.
“I'm going to wear a powder sky blue tuxedo and at the end of the evening I'm going to urinate on myself in front of a billion people.”
Ratner has revealed that many of the ideas for the Oscar ceremony are dictated by what’s nominated, but said he's also coming up with a lot of ideas beforehand.
Might be an idea to have some towels on standby.
