Brew Quotes: Eddie Murphy On Quitting The Oscars


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Quotes, eddie murphy | Posted on 09-11-2011

Eddie Murphy decided to bow out of his Oscar hosting gig after producer and friend Brett Ratner resigned. Ratner was forced out after making a homophobic slur during an interview and then going on Howard Stern’s show and discussing intimate details of his sex life. Famed Hollywood producer Brian Grazer will take Ratner’s spot. Ratner, who directed Murphy in “Tower Heist,” had been working with Eddie on skits for the show. Eddie felt transitioning to a new producer would prove too difficult, so he quit. Must be nice to actually be able to turn down work.

Here’s what he said about quitting the show:

“First and foremost, I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony,” Murphy said in a statement. “I was truly looking forward to being part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure the new production team and host will do an equally great job.”

Methinks this is a bad career move. This guy needs a hit…badly. Sure, he’s rich but you still need a hit every now and then.

So, who do you think should host the Academy Awards? I vote The Notorious N.P.H.!!!

Eddie Murphy Returning To Stand-Up Comedy?

Eddie Murphy

Word is comedian Eddie Murphy wants to hit the road again. (Maybe he needs to store up some Scary Spice child support money… #justsayin)

Murphy says it will be a year before he has enough material for a complete show.

He says: “Within the last six months or so, I started getting an itch to do it again. I started writing stuff… I was like, ‘I could go and do 15, 20 minutes right now. Maybe in a couple of months I’ll start working out again.’ But it’ll take a year before I’m ready to go on the road… It’s gonna take at least a year to get the rust off; 20 years of rust.”

Are you still checkin’ for Eddie? Would you go see him on tour?

Here’s some classic Murphy stand-up…

I still don’t see how Eddie doesn’t check for this lil cutie daughter of his! She just looks like fun. Could be that nutball haircut her momma gave her (which still might border on child abuse) but it’s kinda adding to her charm. Nice how her step daddy is there for her…..

Eddie you are a creep!

Zahara & Shiloh cold chillin…….. see Rodney, we can all just get along………
