Eddie Murphy was what People liked to call the "raunchiest trickster of the '80s " who threw the racism of the dirty era back in its face with a lightheartedness that caused him to roll in the millions. His Saturday-Night-Live performances certainly paid off in the long run. In fact, they helped bring out the very uniqueness of the comedian that made him "Eddie Murphy". Films like "48 Hours" (1982), and "Beverly Hills Cop" (1984), helped soar him to stardom.

He faded into the background for a while, but in 1992 he had a marvelous comeback with the blockbuster, "Boomerang". Then, in 1996, "The Nutty Professor" earned not only appreciation and respect from mature fans, but from the adolescent youth everywhere as well! Other movies like 1988's "Coming To America", and 1987's "Eddie Murphy Raw", are solid proof that this man is more than just a black man from nowhere; he was a talented comedian who was destined to go somewhere!

Eddie Murphy Quotes...

"I've always had confidence. It came because I have lots of initiative. I wanted to make something of myself."

"The thing about kids is that they express emotion. They don't hold back. If they want to cry, they cry, and if they are in a good mood, they're in a good mood."

"My girl wants to party all the time, party all the time, party all the time..."

Eddie Murphy Reviews...

Interview with Eddie Murphy... his thoughts on playing characters who don't have it all together.

Patrick Stoner: We're very used to seeing you play the glib, quick-thinking guy with all the answers. Watching you do the range of comic characters in THE NUTTY PROFESSOR, I have to wonder if it was liberating to play characters who don't have it all together, like Sherman [the overweight, shy professor]?

Eddie Murphy: Oh, very much. We all know people like that. Maybe they have a physical problem or are just very insecure. They are always taking abuse, and laughing it off -- not because it doesn't hurt, but because they don't know what else to do. I liked Sherman very much, and I respected him. He was a good man, with more courage and dignity than most of us have.

Stoner: Do you think you're an observant person?

Murphy: Absolutely. I started out as an impressionist, and that's all about observing -- how people move, their voice quality, their attitudes and quirks. I haven't been able to do much of that because ... well, success is strange. You do something people like, and then everyone -- the studios, the people around the artists -- they all want you to milk it for all that's it worth. Pretty soon, you're not the artist anymore; you're the painting, and it may not be the only view you would like to show the world. But you have to, or the audience feels cheated. Then, they think they know what to expect out of you, and that's death.

Stoner: So, how do you get around that?

Murphy: You find a project that lets you give them the Eddie they know -- the one they grew to like -- but also has other characters that allow you to stretch. So, you keep your base, but you aren't limited to it. At least, that's what you try to do.
