Billy Crystal to the rescue! The nine-time Oscar host has agreed to replace Eddie Murphy as emcee of the 2012 Academy Awards. “Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions,” the comedian tweeted Thursday afternoon. “Looking forward to the show.”

News of Crystal’s Oscar comeback comes a day after Murphy dropped out in the wake ofF-bomb dropper Brett Ratner’s resignation as the telecast’s producer. Brian Grazer will now oversee the ceremony.
