THEN: Between his years on 'Saturday Night Live' and movies like 'Beverly Hills Cop' and 'The Nutty Professor,' Eddie Murphy was an unquestionable A-lister in 1998.

NOW: 'Mulan' was Murphy's first animated film. Since then, he's gone on to lend his voice to Thurgoode Orenthal Stubbs on the short-lived cartoon series 'The PJs,' and most memorably as Donkey, the fast-talking jackass of the 'Shrek' franchise. However, while Murphy continues to act in live-action movies, these have lately proved far less popular than his animated endeavors.
