‘Boomerang’: How Much Is the Movie’s Cast Worth Today?
The 1992 film, Boomerang, is the raunchy rom-com led by Hollywood OG Eddie Murphy. The film, which was a commercial success, featured a deep bench of talent. Here’s a peek at how much personal wealth the stars of the movie have amassed since then.
‘Boomerang’ flipped the script on romantic comedies
Boomerang revolves around an advertising pro and womanizer named Marcus. When a female executive named Jaqueline swoops in and lands the job Marcus believes he deserved, she also steals his heart and then breaks it.
While licking his wounds, Marcus hangs with his best friends Tyler and Gerard, and his creative colleagues Angela, Bony T, and Strangé. The film garnered laughs and raked in over $131 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
Based on the film’s success, it is no surprise that the cast members landed subsequent high-profile roles. Here is how the stars stack up today when it comes to wealth, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Eddie Murphy as ‘Marcus’
From headlining comedy shows to grabbing the spotlight on the big screen, Saturday Night Live alum Murphy has worked hard and built a massive fortune. The star is worth an estimated $200 million.
