Back in 1985, Eddie Murphy was like Party All the Time, but people thought they he should stick to doing comedy and movies instead of singing. Now it is 30, yes 3-0, years later and he is thinking of releasing another album.
The Nutty Professor released a Reggae beat on Facebook today called Oh Jah Jah and said, “If people respond to this, then I might do another album.” I don’t know about you, but I’d be Delirious if did just that. Especially, if all the songs sound like one. You ready for another Eddie Murphy record?
CBS decided not to move forward with a show based on Beverly Hills Cop, but looks like a new movie is in the works. The show’s creator Shawn Ryan Tweeted, “Sad to report that efforts to land Beverly Hills Cop pilot at another network have failed. This iteration is dead for now. Good news for fans of franchise is that the pilot tested so well, it has caused Paramount to put another #BHC movie into development.”
No word if that means Eddie Murphy will be the lead or if they will go with pilot’s concept and base it around Axel Foley’s son. I am hoping it’s all about Axel because I’d like to see Murphy get back to where he was.
Forbes has released the 2012’s Most Overpaid Actors and the list includes Oscar winner, Razzie winners and an Oscar and Razzie winner.
Eddie Murphy, who has been in box office dud after box office dud, tops the list by only making $2.30 for every $1 paid. Next up is Katherine Heigl, who hung up TV scrubs to be a RomCom star, makes $3.40 for every $1 paid and looks like she made a mistake leaving Grey’s Anatomy. Next up is the first Oscar winner on the list and kind of a surprise, Reese Witherspoon makes $3.90 for every $1 paid. She is followed by another Oscar winner, Sandra Bullock makes $5 for every $1 paid, and her new movie looks it will get her higher up on the list. Jack Black is $.20 behind her, and the only reason why he isn’t up there with Murphy is his animated movies earn the big bucks. Nicolas Cage might be happy he is on a list even if it is this one. Adam Sandler is next on the list at $6.30 for every $1 paid and I am sure he will be climbing the list next year. Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington is tied with the man whose movie won every Razzie earlier this year. Ben Stiller does sh!tty movies, but there is still an audience for them. Sarah Jessica Parker closes out the list, who knew she is still making movie.
Where is Will Ferrell because his movies are barely watchable, but like Ben Stiller he some how gets an audience. Other people I am surprised not on the list are Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper, Will Smith and Tom Cruise. I think in the next few years Brad Pitt, Melissa McCarthy, Steve Carrell, Zach Galifianakis, Russell Brand, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will be one of Forbes Most Overpaid Actors.
Who do you think is missing and who will be there in the future.
Too bad Dreamworks didn’t release the trailer for A Thousand Words yesterday because it would’ve gone perfect with the news of Eddie Murphy wimping out of hosting the Oscars.
Now when it comes to the movie, maybe because I love Cliff Curtis and for some weird reason believe that Murphy will once again make a funny film, I can’t wait to see this movie when it comes out in 2012! Yes I know it looks a lot like Liar Liar, except instead of not being able to lie he can’t talk, but I liked the Jim Carrey flick and I am sure I will like this one too! I think?
A day after Brett Ratner “resigned” from hosting this year’s Oscars, Eddie Murphy, the star of his bomb Tower Heist and his choice to host the shindig has done the same. The SNL alum said this in a statement from AMPAS, “First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job.” Now that he is out, I am bummed because with the right production team he might have done a great job! Afterall he was once a very funny guy!
Now who should host the Academy Awards??? Hands down please please please bring back Billy Crystal!!!
UPDATE: The Academy announced that Brian Graizer (the guy who has Sideshow Bob’s hairstyle will produce the Oscars with Don Mischner.
