“The culture” lost another one today. When news spread that comedian and actor Charlie Murphy died from leukemia Wednesday at age 57,  fans and his Hollywood peers expressed condolences and praise.



Murphy was famous for his storytelling on Chappelle’s Show, but also had appearances on “Harlem Nights,” “Mo’ Better Blues,” “Jungle Fever,” “Roll Bounce” and “The Perfect Holiday.” His writing credits include “Vampire In Brooklyn,” “Norbit,” and “Chappelle’s Show.”

Murphy, brother to star Eddie Murphy, also lent his voice for the character Ed Wuncler III in the popular animated  series “The Boondocks.”
