Eddie Murphy

Actor

A giant of American comedy, Eddie Murphy rose to prominence in the 1980s—a time when few black comics had broken through to mainstream America. His career runs from edgy Saturday Night Live skits like “Kill My Landlord” to classic stand-up films Raw and Delirious to feature films like Beverly Hills Cop, Coming to America, Dr. Doolittle, The Nutty Professor, and an Oscar-nominated role in 2007’s Dreamgirls. An inspiration to future stars like Chris Rock, Murphy ranks just behind Tom Hanks as the second highest grossing movie star of all time.
