That was over 39 years ago in 1982.
Today he is 60, and has starred in 65 movies in total, 61 since 48 Hrs. was released.
In 48 Hrs., I think Eddie Murphy looks:
48 Hrs. scores 6.5 out of 10 on The Movie Database.
Eddie Murphy's first acting role was as 'Reggie Hammond' in 48 Hrs., released in 1982 when he was 21.
