'The Early Show' reports on Eddie Murphy hosting the OscarsBy now the news has spread that Eddie Murphy will host the 84th Academy Awards ceremonies in February of 2012. Wednesday morning, 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) took a look back at Murphy's career, from his early days in comedy through his more recent acting work.

They covered his work on 'Saturday Night Live,' where he played everyone from Stevie Wonder to Buckwheat, his hit stand-up specials like 'Delirious,' and blockbuster films like 'Beverly Hills Cop.'

The piece also showed an interview clip from shortly after Murphy's Golden Globe win for 'Dreamgirls' in which he indicated he wanted to try some new things. "I've been in the movie business for a while but still a relatively young man," he said, "so I want to get to try and do some different stuff. So when I look back on, when I'm really old I can look back and be like, wow, I did everything."


He's worked with animals, had a public scandal, and will now have hosted an awards ceremony. The only thing left would be a late night talk show.
