Steve Martin's advice to Eddie Murphy on hosting the Oscars

Once upon a time, comedy legends Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy co-starred in a movie together - BOWFINGER - that most people forgot, which is strange because it's probably the funniest movie both of these guys have made in the past 12 years. Murphy is hosting the Oscars this year and his one-time co-star Martin, who hosted the Oscars two years ago, took it upon himself to offer up some friendly, if not unsolicited, advice.

It's stuff like this that reminds me how funny Steve Martin really is and makes me wish he'd write another comedy script sometime soon.

God, I love that man

Interesting, I think when I was younger I didn't always get his humor. What was wrong with me?

But seriously, that all sounds like sage advice and I actually have pretty high hopes for Murphy-as-host.

I love Steve Martin. This makes me want to watch L.A. Story, a vastly underrated movie.

It'd be even more awesome if you read this letter with Steve Martin's voiceover from movies like The Jerk, The Lonely Guy or L.A. Story (thanks for mentioning that, Longbaugh. I almost forgot it).

was that a real letter to Eddie from Steve? Pretty funny! If Steve Martin takes the time to give you advice about acting you should take it!
