Eddie Murphy, meet Eddie Valiant?
Before his long absence from starring roles in show business, Eddie Murphy was one of the hottest actors in the world. He showed off his range with roles in movies as different as the gritty "48 Hrs.," the hilarious "Coming to America," and the unhinged "Nutty Professor" remakes. He also launched franchises like "Beverly Hills Cop" and had major voice acting turns in "Mulan" and "Shrek" — but that doesn’t mean every professional decision Murphy made turned out to be a good one.
In the 1980s, Murphy revealed, he was offered the lead role opposite a cartoon rabbit in a live-action/animation hybrid now seen as a modern classic. This is the iconic Disney role Eddie Murphy regrets turning down.
