Straight to DVD.
There is no better choice.
The only way Eddie Murphy can be funny anymore is by portraying someone genuinely funny.
If this is done right,it could be like Jamie Foxx starring in Ray...then Eddie can stop starring in movies like Norbit and Meet Dave and make some qualityfilms...
Eddie's impersonation is so perfect.
If you just listened to him impersonating Pryor with your eyes closed, you'd thing for sure it was him.
Are they going to have a scene about Harlem Nights in cause that'll be as weird as thoe Taxi scenes in Man of the Moon whereeveryone awkwardly tried to no make any mention of Danny Devito who was playing Andy Kaufman's manager.
- although i liked the first pick of Mike Epps. i like this one better. people forget how good Murphy can be in serious roles.
i'll wait and see to comment
I thought Eddie only did family flicks these days
Co-Sign, Mike Epps is actually looks like Pryor
y u hatin on Norbit. I know I aint the only one that thought that movie was funny as hell. yeah i know it was corny too but it was still funny
Mike Epps would have sucked as Pryor. He's too goofy and not good enough as an actor. He may look more like him than Eddie but Eddie is def a betterimpressionist and actor overall....
Eddie doesn't star in the movies he does because he thinks they'll be Oscar winners or whatever. He's making $$$$ out the ***...
I wonder how theyre gonna dress eddie up to look like Rich.
this should be
You dudes don't realize that Eddie Murphy grew up watching and listening to Richard Pryor early on in his life and that Richard Pryor is the reason EddieMurphy got into comedy according to him. Not to mention that Richard Pryer and Eddie Murphy were real good friends. Trust me, no one is better suited to playRichard Pryer, NO ONE. Don't let these kids movies that Eddie now does fool you, Eddie Murphy is one of the best comedians of all time, he'll playthis role just fine.
So true, so true. Eddie admitted how much he admired Pryor and how he was an idol and later in life, they became great friends. And even if Eddienever came out and said that, his early stand-ups were really, really, really...really, really similar to a lot of Pryor's stuff...
This is a wavy thing people a wavy thing.
I always wondered where Eddie would be had he not went the kids movie route.
