Hollywood actor Eddie Murphy

Eddie (Edward Regan) Murphy was born on April 3, 1961 in Brooklyn, NYC, New York (USA). At age 49, the actor, comedian, director, producer and singer is riding high on a wave of hits that had its first surge when the budding young Murphy was a regular on the hit TV series, Saturday Night Live from 1980 until 1984. His film career was launched with a hit, too. His first big role in the film, 48 Hours, was way back in 1982. Now, almost thirty years later, Murphy has had roles in over 35 major films either “in person” or “in voice” roles. Some of his career highlights include his roles in hits like: Beverly Hills Cop, The Nutty Professor, Dr. Doolittle, Shrek and so many more.

Murphy has been nominated for numerous awards for his work in film. His nominations, however, greatly exceed his actual wins. His trophy shelf currently holds:
• Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dream Girls, 2007
• SAG Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Dream Girls, 2007
• Saturn Award for Best Actor for The Nutty Professor, 1997
