The Reason Eddie Murphy Is Still Making Movies

Very few people can say they have done it all in Hollywood. From comedy to acting to music, Eddie Murphy had tackled every corner of the entertainment genre in the 80’s and 90’s. Yet, in the last 8 years the famous comedian hasn’t been seen much in the public eye and had only done 2 movies, why is that?

Murphy is the father of 10 children. Murphy told Entertainment Weekly, that the reason he hasn’t done so much is because “I was tired.” Murphy has had a lot going on in his life. Although that may change.

Murphy had received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor Award in 2015, because of this event, it reminded Murphy of how much he loves to make people laugh. This event had inspired Murphy to start writing new material, and putting himself back in the public eye once more.

The future for Eddie Murphy is laid out already somewhat. Returning to Saturday Night Live in December of 2019 to host, as well as filming sequels for his hit movies “Coming to America” and “Beverly Hills Cops” Eddie will have his hands filled for quite awhile. Not to mention that his new film “Dolemite Is My Name” has hit Netflix, so go check that out.
