In the early 1980s, when Steve Martin was a fledgling movie star, he recalls attending the American Film Institute's celebration of Frank Capra and how Hollywood glitterati swirled around the Oscar-winning filmmaker.Next week, Martin himself will be at the center of the celebration, surrounded by his friends and colleagues from a 48-year career in entertainment. Mel Brooks will present Martin with AFI's 43rd Life Achievement Award at a private ceremony in Hollywood on June 4 .The ultimate multihyphenate, Martin says he never had a career plan – which seems to have worked out well for the 69-year-old screenwriter, actor, comedian, producer, playwright, novelist and musician.Martin recently began work on Ang Lee's latest film, "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk," and hopes to one day work with Wes Anderson.Martin will also be curating a traveling art exhibit of works by Canadian painter Lawren Harris.
