Only hours after Eddie Murphy announced he was stepping down as host of this year’s Oscar ceremony, from out of nowhere, Philadelphia investment titans the Duke brothers have stepped up to land Dan Aykroyd to fill in. Randolph and Mortimer Duke are also rumored to be in talks with Jamie Lee Curtis to make an appearance as a hooker with a heart of gold at the show.
Haven’t heard much from the Dukes since they got killed in the legendary frozen concentrated orange juice crash of 1983.
Tweet O’ the Day goes to Tim and Eric Awesome Show editor and sometime joke DJ Doug Lussenhop for this amazing scoop.
