Eddie Murphy recently revealed that he almost starred in the 80s film Ghostbusters.

In a recent interview, he explains why he turned the role down.  He said, “We were doing ‘Trading Places’ and Dan Aykroyd was like, ‘This movie ‘Ghostbusters…’ But then ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ came along.” He then said, “I wish I could have been in both, but I did ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ instead of ‘Ghostbusters.'” Both films were released in 1984.
