Is Mel Gibson poised for a comeback? This might be the case. His return to prominence would be very unexpected considering his public disgraces of recent memory.

Turns out it’s Eddie Murphy…
According to an article published in Forbes magazine, the once-legendary comedian known for his range received the unflattering title of most overpaid actor in 2012. This distinction comes shortly after a long list of box office bombs in which the star received top dollar to participate in less than enjoyable films.
You don’t really need to look far to find an Eddie Murphy bomb. Anything past the late 90s is an abysmal disgrace to the actor and if you get any movie channels through services like http://www.direct2tv.com/, then you pretty much know that Murphy’s new title was clearly earned in blood.
Coming off of such classics like Coming to America and Beverly Hills Cop and Trading Places, one has to wonder if the man even read the scripts or gave a crap about dragging his good name through such gems as Meet Dave or Pluto Nash.
In a lot of ways, calling Eddie Murphy an overpaid actor is a dig that goes deep. It’s a terrible thing to say but it, unfortunately, highlights a very real decline in the life and career of this once beloved actor.
Now, when people hear the name “Eddie Murphy” they are less excited and more upset, and there’s nothing funny about that.

When digging a little deeper, this may not be quite as much a battle, but more of a rivalry for television watchers everywhere. Both of these competitors represent number one shows in their respective time slots. Perhaps they are just teasing Read the rest of this entry…
