The actor revealed the role he refused and still regrets it today! On The Tonight Show, chatting with host Jimmy Fallon, Eddie Murphy touched on a number of topics, including the only concert that escaped.
Of course, it’s because he refused it, but looking back, the actor obviously wishes he hadn’t.
It turned out to be Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the revolutionary animated film from 1988.
The revelation started 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” Beverly Hills Cop, “he said before continuing:” It wasn’t like I turned it down because I wasn’t available because that I made another film. The only film that I refused and that became a big hit was “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” … I was going to be Bob Hoskins. I was like “what? The entertainment and the people seem to me like bulls. “Now, every time I see him, I feel like an idiot.”
While it doesn’t have to be this hard on itself, it certainly isn’t wrong about the film’s huge success.
The live animated hybrid production won no less than 3 Oscars for its visual and sound effects, all revolutionary at the time of its release.
In addition, the public has also benefited, as evidenced by the $ 329 million he made at the box office.
