Writing an open letter to Eddie on his website, Martin who co-hosted the Oscars in 2010 with 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin kicked off with: ‘Whatever you do, don’t have a co-host. They’re a big pain and they just end up breaking your SNL hosting record.’

After a few digs at his paunchiness and their combined lack of an Oscar win he advised: ‘If you feel tired midway through give Neil Patrick Harris a Red Bull and throw some sheet music at him.’
He rounded it off with a bit of late 90s nostalgia: ‘Eddie, since you and I are old friends, and I sincerely thought you deserved an Oscar nomination for BOWFINGER, the movie we did together that stands alone in comedy history, from which we got no credit or acknowledgment except large paychecks and drivers and any type of food we wanted delivered to us every day in our really nice trailers. I wish you all the best on you Oscar hosting gig.’
Here’s to Bowfinger 2!
