However the actor and comic, whose final main movie success was 2010′s “Shrek Forever After,” seems to be mounting a comeback ― and it seems like his new Netflix film due out this fall shall be a vital element of that. A trailer for “Dolemite Is My Name” dropped Monday, that includes the previous “Beverly Hills Cop” star and “Saturday Night Live” trouper as real-life blaxploitation star Rudy Ray Moore. (See the preview beneath.)
Moore, a comic book, turned the stage persona of a kung fu-fighting pimp into his memorable 1975 display flip as “Dolemite.”
“Dolemite is my name and fucking up motherfuckers is my game,” Murphy’s Moore declares.
There are many nice ’70s touches within the clip, to not point out enjoyable appearances by Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key and others.
