"The first thing that came out of my mouth was, 'I'm not doing one of those crazy dance numbers,'" Murphy said. "That's exactly what you're gonna be doing," Letterman countered.

Murphy broke into a little Oscar-themed tune. He also got some advice from Letterman, the 1995 Oscar host, who told him the gig "ain't all it's cracked up to be."
