First Trailer for Moving Day from Trailer Park Boys’ Mike Clattenburg

10 July 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Previously titled The Guys Who Move Furniture, Trailer Park Boys’ creator/director back behind the camera this year with Moving Day – a slightly less bland re-titling.

Will Sasso (the upcoming The Three Stooges) stars in the lead, alongside Victor Garber (Alias), Charlie Murphy (Night at the Museum [and Eddie’s brother]), and comedian Gerry Dee.

Alliance Films have released the first trailer, giving us our first look at what so far seems to be a bit of a tame workplace comedy – it has nothing on, say, Office Space or Clerks.

“From director Mike Clattenburg (Afghan Luke, The Trailer Park Boys) comes the new workplace comedy, Moving Day starring Will Sasso (The upcoming Three Stooges movie, TV’s $#*! My Dad Says). Clyde (Sasso) was in a rut. Overworked and underpaid, he was struggling to make ends meet and starting to feel like a failure. But a new day has arrived for Clyde at Redmond’s »

Eddie Murphy's bro debunks death hoax - Realbollywood.com News

4 February 2012 10:40 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, Feb 5: Eddie Murphy's brother has lashed out at rumours doing the rounds on the Internet that the comedian had passed away in a car accident.

The Global Associated News Website sent out a fake report that Murphy, 50, had perished in a single car crash in Queensland, Australia, while on vacation.

"My brother is fine. People who start these type of rumours are sick people," Us magazine quoted Charlie Murphy as tweeting.

"It's really astounding how low people will go for attention. Eddie Murphy is fine!" he said.
