The actor revealed the role he rejected and still regrets it to this day! While on The Tonight Show, chatting with host Jimmy Fallon, Eddie Murphy talked about a series of topics, including the concert that escaped.
Of course, it was because he rejected it, but looking back, the actor obviously wishes he hadn't.
It turns out that it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the innovative animated film of 1988.
The revelation began with the host asking Eddie to confirm the rumors that Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis really wanted him in the 1984 Ghostbusters!
"Yes, because I did,quot; Beverly Hills Cop, "he said before continuing to say that,quot; It was not as if he rejected it, since it was not available because I made another film. The only film I rejected and that became a great success was "Who cheated Roger Rabbit,quot; … I was going to be Bob Hoskins. I was like what? Animation and people sound like bulls ** t to me. "Now, every time I see it, I feel like an idiot."
While it is not necessary to be so hard on yourself, you are definitely not wrong about the great success of the movie.
The animated live-action hybrid production won no less than 3 Academy Awards for its visual and sound effects, all innovative at the time it came out.
In addition, the public also enjoyed it, as evidenced by the more than $ 329 million he earned at the box office.
