'Dolemite Is My Name': Eddie Murphy Is a Karate-Chopping Showman in First Trailer

On Monday, Netflix dropped the first trailer for the legendary funnyman's new biopic project, Dolemite Is My Name , showcasing a role for the ages.

In the film, the 58-year-old actor plays Rudy Ray Moore, a down-on-his-luck entertainer in 1970s L.A. who has a plan to become a household name.

The star-studded cast also includes Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, T.I., Snoop Dogg and Tituss Burgess, who got in a minor war of words with Andy Cohen in July over the project.

While discussing the movie on What What Happens Live With Andy Cohen , the host told Burgess that Murphy was "very problematic for the gays at one point."

Burgess was diplomatic on the air, but the next day he blasted Cohen in the comments section of a video he'd previously posted.

"Sunday was a display of ratchet behavior by a well connected man having blatant disregard for one of his guests," Burgess added.
