Forbes has released a list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood, calculated by comparing the amount the actors were paid for their last three roles with the average return on the investment for the studio. Heading up the list is Eddie Murphy, whose last three films – “Tower Heist,” “A Thousand Words,” and “Imagine That” – were all giant flops, tops the list with a measly $2.30 return on every dollar.
Second is Katherine Heigl, who became very expensive following a string of hits like “Knocked Up,” but has failed to score even a modest hit ever since, with “One for the Money” actually failing to make back its budget.
Finishing off the top five is Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock and Jack Black, with high-profile flops including “How Do You Know,” “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” and “The Big Year.” Do you think Eddie Murphy’s career is over?
