I mean I knew about Eddie Murphy, but I didn’t know my Eddie Murphy….
Murphy came onto the scene a month and 48 Hrs. after I did back in 1982, you see, so it wasn’t until 1996, the year that also gave us his Nutty Professor remake, that I like, hopped onto the Eddie Murphy train.
I had heard he’d been a Beverly Hills Cop, but what can I tell ya: Dude is Donkey. And before that, he was Doctor Dolittle.
He’s also a great character actor, and one of the last great American movie stars, so here we go. ’Cause 30 years after the first one, Coming 2 America is premiering on Amazon Prime Video on March 5.
