Eddie Murphy hosting the 84th Oscars?

Eddie Murphy in talks to host 84th Oscars

"Show producer Brett Ratner reportedly keen to get 'Shrek' star on board.

Comedian and actor Eddie Murphy is in talks to host the 84th Academy Awards, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Although no names have officially been submitted to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences just yet, a decision could be made on Tuesday when Oscar producers Brett Ratner and Don Mischer meet up with the Academy s president, Tom Sherak.

According to Deadline.com, Ratner has had Murphy s name in mind for some time as a candidate for the coveted hosting gig.

Aside from Murphy s notable comedic background and stand-up career, we hear Ratner and the "Shrek" star struck up quite the friendship when Ratner directed Murphy s upcoming "Tower Heist" action flick with Ben Stiller, in theaters November 4.

Murphy isn't the only comic actor in the running to host the Oscars, however. Billy Crystal, who's expressed interest in hosting the show again, is also reportedly being considered for the position."
