Truth is Stranger than Fiction

Phillip Capshaw provides his own unique perspective on everything from local to world events and, as the blog title suggests, believes that nothing is funnier than observing the comical nature of our fellow man and especially Southern Oklahomans. Phillip is a native of Ardmore, Oklahoma, with varied interests who likes to poke fun at almost any group and occupation, but feels as if there is much to make fun of in passing the mirror everyday.

Eddie Murphy was once a beloved funnyman, known for his work on Saturday Night Live, Beverly Hills Cop and a slew of family-friendly comedies that even adults would enjoy. But oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Murphy has topped Forbes' annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood. The magazine estimates that for every dollar Murphy was paid for his last three films, the films earned an average of $2.30 at the box office.

The numbers aren't that surprising, since Murphy's recent films are a far cry from the blockbusters he used to headline. Meet Dave, A Thousand Words and Imagine That all flopped at the box office, while Murphy's supposed "comeback" film Tower Heist did only marginally better.

Murphy placed second last year on Forbes' list behind Drew Barrymore, who fell out of the top 10 this year without any recent releases.

Following Murphy, is former box-office rom-com queen Katherine Heigl. The actress made her somewhat shocking debut on the overpaid actors list with the estimated average return of $3.40.

Reese Witherspoon comes in third, with an average of $3.90. Another surprise, Sandra Bullock, ranks in fourth with her films earning $5 for every dollar she was paid. Jack Black comes in fifth with an average $5.20 return for every dollar he received.
