As far as his day job, Murphy says he just wrapped on a Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) movie Cook about a guy who gets hired to work as a chef for a woman who’s dying. Instead she lives for six years and he becomes involved with and attached to the family.
“No, it’s not a comedy. It’s not funny at all. It’s the first time I’m doing a sad movie. I die at the end. My hair gets all receding and chewed out. I’m an alcoholic, cigarette-smoking cook. It’s a tearjerker.”
Listen to the entire interview as he talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about music and why J. Anthony Brown’s hot sauce may be too hot to handle.
