Eddie Murphy in Talks to Host Oscars

Eddie Murphy Raw . . . at the Oscars!

The comic superstar, 50, is in early talks to host the 84th Annual Academy Awards in February 2012, Deadline reports.

The Hollywood industry site says that Oscar producer and movie director Bret Ratt Ratner is meeting with members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this Tuesday to pitch the Shrek actor as this year’s emcee.

Murphy, according to reporters, is “showing interest.”

Two stars who probably won’t be on the shortlist for next year’s Oscars are Anne Hathaway and James Franco, whose co-hosting gig at the 2011 show were roundly panned.
