Eddie Murphy Will Host 2012 Oscars

Why? Weren't we tortured enough by Anne Hathaway & James Franco this year? Give us a break. Eddie Murphy hasn't been in a movie or on stage in years so I really have no idea how this guy's name got thrown out there...maybe they simply picked it from a hat? That would make sense.

According to PEOPLE, the 50-year-old Nutty Professor star has been selected to host 2012's Academy Awards show in February.
"Eddie is a comedic genius, one of the greatest and most influential live performers ever," telecast producer Brett Ratner says. "I know he will bring excitement, spontaneity and tremendous heart to the show."
I guess he can't do any worse than James Franco tweeting on stage, right?
