Billy Crystal Gets $4 Million to Write Book on Aging

| by Michael Allen

Comedian and actor Billy Crystal has been out of the limelight for years, with the exception of stepping in as a fill-in host for the Oscars, but that hasn't stopped him from landing a big book deal, reportedly worth $4 million.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the book will be a comedic look at aging. Crystal, 64, has signed a deal for the book to be released on his 65th birthday.

The book will be published by Henry Holt and Co., which confirmed the deal on Thursday.

Sources say the book on senior citizenship is "hilarious."
