Don’t call it a comeback! Eddie Murphy has no plans of officially getting back into the movie business. The actor, who will next be seen in the indie flick Mr. Church, told us at the red carpet premiere it’s not his comeback movie. “This is a little dramatic movie, it’s not a big comedy. It’s not a comeback movie. I’m still gone,” he joked.
Murphy said he took the role, after a four-year break, because it allowed him to do something dramatic and different. Now he’s garnering Oscar buzz for his turn as a family cook and caretaker. So, what are his thoughts on a possible Oscar nomination?
“That’s always great when it happens, if it happens,” he said with a smile. “That never sucks; no one is ever mad when they get an Oscar nomination.”
Mr. Church is in theaters September 16th.
