Jon Stewart Reacts To Eddie Murphy Hosting The Oscars, Says He Will F**cking Kill It

A lot of people have had their share of reactions toward the news that Eddie Murphy will be hosting this year's Academy Awards.

But late night funny man Jon Stewart has complete confidence that Murphy will deliver a great show.

In his Rolling Stone profile, Stewart praises the fellow comic while throwing in a few self-mocking jabs at his own hosting experience.

Listen, the last person I would give advice to is Eddie Murphy. He’s gonna fucking kill it. He’s the type of guy they haven’t had in a while. He’s a movie star, but he’s a great comic – sort of similar to Billy Crystal in his “multi-ability.”

With guys like me, you get the sense that at some level, deep down inside, we think it’s f-cking ridiculous. Now that can make for a very entertaining show. But it’s good to mix it up.
