Eddie Murphy
What the heck, people? Eddie Murphy was subject to another of the long standing internet traditions: The faux-death rumor. Though his career may be in trouble (on that note: will anyone see his latest movie A Thousand Words?) the Tower Heist star is not dead.

Shrek Vs. Rumple
Another Shrek, another chance to see your favorite animated characters and another chance to be reminded of the genius that was the first film, without this being the first film.

This is the best casting news I've heard in a very long time. Earlier this year, there were rumors that Eddie Murphy had been cast as the groundbreaking comedian/actor Richard Pryor in a developing biopic. Sure, Murphy is one of the many comedians who took after Pryor's edgy style and benefited from his trailblazing routines, but I wasn't a fan of his casting. That's why the news of his...
