Murphy, a one-time Oscar nominee, last three live-action films —  “Imagine That,” “Tower Heist” and “A Thousand Words” — is a combined domestic box office total of $196.3 million. Forbes estimates that for every dollar Murphy was paid for those last three films, he returned $2.30 at the box office.
