The beloved Charlie Murphy, the older brother of Eddie Murphy, has died at the age of 57.

The comedian’s manager confirmed that Charlie passed away on Wednesday morning at an NYC hospital after what appears to be a very private battle with leukemia. According to reports, the family is “shocked” by the sudden passing because they were under the impression their loved one was getting better.

Charlie’s untimely death comes eight years after the passing of his wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy. Tisha, also the mother of Murphy’s two children, died in 2009 from cervical cancer.

The actor, who is most known for his roles on CB4 and Chapelle’s Show, was so dearly loved in Hollywood. As you could imaged, Hollywood reaction was almost immediate following the heartbreaking news.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
