Eddie Murphy quits family films, might return to stand up

Eddie Murphy rarely does any interviews, you’d think he was in SEAL Team 6 for fucks sake, so when he sat down with Rolling Stone recently for this one, he really made it count.

On if he’ll do any more kids movies…

“I don’t have any interest in that right now. There’s really no blueprint, but I’m trying to do some edgy stuff. And I only want to do what I really want to do, otherwise I’m content to sit here and play my guitar all day.”

On ‘Beverly Hills Cop IV’…

“They’re not doing it. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”

On returning to stand up comedy…

“If I ever get back onstage, I’m going to have a really great show for you all. An hour and a half of stand-up and about 40 minutes of my shitty band… But I haven’t done it since I was 27, so why fuck with it? But that’s just weighing both sides. It comes up too much for me to not do it again. It’s like, when it hits me, I’ll do it, eventually.”

This would be great because Eddie Murphy can still be really really funny, but most of his stand-up was things like, “look at this faggot ass faggot” and “what if the President was black?” I’m not so sure you can still do that. That was the 80’s, when homophobia and racism seemed perfectly reasonable.
