I thought Eddie Murphy was hilarious. I’ve always been a huge fan of Eddie Murphy, I think he’s an absolutely brilliant comedian. I’ve seen everything he’s done, and what he does just blows me away every time. And I really loved playing off the ideas that he would act out. So it was great to watch Eddie be so hilarious, to interact with that, and then to kind of just sit and watch a master. So I just sort of played off of him, it was really great.
