The piece of literature is currently being edited without a title, because Crystal has one “dirty title” and one “sincere title” in mind. When it hits the market around Crystal’s 65th birthday on March 14 of next year, the book will publish at around 350 pages with really, really large print to make it easy to read.

Compare Billy Crystal's Oscar Opening And Seth Rogen's Indie Spirit Monologue

It didn't go off without a hitch, but the venue combined with Rogen's affable style and quick wit (not to mention experience as a stand-up comic) allowed him to roll with the punches and turn even the crickets into laughs. I would tell the Academy to take note and perhaps look to Rogen to host in the future but until they hire new writers and adopt a new 'not so scared to offend' philosophy, all the hosting advice in the world won't matter.

Gervais At The Globes Or Crystal At The Oscars, Who'll Be Better?

Josh Duhamel And Megan Fox Hunt For Billy Crystal In First Trailer For The Academy Awards

Billy Crystal has hosted the Academy Awards eight times, but, in poetic fashion, it's also been 8 years since he last did it. But it's not only from the Oscar stage that he's disappeared. With the exception of his uncredited role in 2010's Tooth Fairy, Crystal hasn't been in a live-action movie since 2002's Analyze That. For that reason, it's totally understandable why William Fichtner had to send Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox to Mongolia to hunt him down.
