HEY, NORTON! Almost two years ago, Eddie Murphy promised that he'd stop making movies by the time he turned fifty and return to standup comedy. We didn't believe him.
Well, he just turned 49 in April and ... Eddie Murphy says he's preparing to return to standup comedy, as he discussed with Ellen DeGeneres. "Within the last six months or so, I started getting an itch to do it again. I started writing stuff... I was like, 'I could go and do 15, 20 minutes right now. Maybe in a couple of months I'll start working out again.' But it'll take a year before I'm ready to go on the road... It's gonna take at least a year to get the rust off -- 20 years of rust."
