Winning the award for the Decade’s Worst Actor Razzie put things into perspective for Eddie Murphy.
Eddie Murphy made his highly anticipated return to the silver screen with Dolemite Is My Name but it had been only the start of a serious comeback.
On Thursday, the long-awaited sequel to the 1988 classic comedy Coming To America arrived on Amazon Prime, and fans rejoiced.
it’d not even be near as great because the original but it had been still crammed with some humorous moments, proving that Murphy still got it.
Unfortunately, the rationale why he took an opportunity from acting was thanks to a string of admittedly bad movies that he was involved in.
By the top of 2010, he had earned the Razzie for Worst Actor of the last decade following Norbit, The Adventures Of Pluto Nash, and Meet Dave. it had been at that point that he realized he needed an opportunity .
“I was making shitty movies,” Murphy said on The Independent’s “WTF” podcast. “I was like, ‘This shit ain’t fun. They’re giving me Razzies…Motherfuckers gave me the ‘worst actor ever’ Razzie. [So I thought], ‘Maybe it’s time to require an opportunity .’”
He said the initial plan was to require an opportunity for a year but that became six real quickly. “I’m sitting on the couch, and that i could sit on the couch and not get off it, but I don’t want to the last bunch of shit they see me do [to be] bullshit,” he continued, adding that the plan was to try to to Dolemite, SNL, and Coming 2 America before returning to stand-up. “At least then they’ll know I’m [still] funny,” he said.
It’s unclear if he’ll be doing any stand-up routines soon but we are glad to ascertain Murphy back to the fold. How are you feeling about Eddie’s return?
