Charlie Murphy

CHARLIE MURPHYYYYYYYY (*in a fake Rick James voice*)! You have probably seen Eddie Murphy’s big brother in a number of films over the years but never noticed him: Harlem Nights, Mo’ Betta Blues, CB4. He was even a rapper in the’80s (those Murphys, always trying to do something in music…), but most of the time, people just knew him as Eddie Murphy’s brother. And then all that changed when he decided to tell a few stories on Chappelle’s Show about his adventures rolling around with Eddie Murphy and his entourage. Those hilarious stories, later played out by Dave Chappelle, made Murphy a star on the show and pretty popular in the mainstream. Since then, he’s been doing voice work for different video games and movies, but I think we’ll always recognize him for his “True Hollywood Stories.”
