Xanadone: Eddie Murphy?

Got my vote.

Do we really need this? By all accounts the man was just as kind, generous, and awesome in real life as he was on his show. You want to make a documentary about the man, great, that'd be wonderful. But what kind of drama and/or comedy can you create around this mans life?
