PORTRAIT

This talented comedian and capable dramatic actor was one of the most bankable leading men in Hollywood during the 1980s, after making a name for himself as a stand-up-comedian and SNL cast member. He made his big screen debut in Walter Hill's 48 Hrs in 1982, which made him an instant star. He went on to star in box office hits Trading Places and the Beverly Hills Cop series while at the same time launching a music career. During the 1990s and 2000s, Murphy broadened his scope and did very well also as a voice actor in animated hits such as Mulan and Shrek. He also had the dubious honour of being elected "Worst Actor of the Decade" during the Golden Raspberry Awards in 2010, despite earning his one and only Academy Award nomination for Dreamgirls during this decade. He hit back with a critically acclaimed performance as comedian Rudy Ray Moore in Dolemite Is My Name in 2019.
