It took Eddie Murphy more than a decade to get a movie made about Rudy Ray Moore. Judging by the response to the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, the wait was worth it. 102olemite Is My Name" was a passion project for the 58-year-old comedian. He long ago met with Moore, who died in 2008 at the age of 81, to discuss making a movie about the comedian. During the standing ovation that followed the film's premiere, cast member Keegan-Michael Key suggested the lengthy applause shouldn't stop for Murphy".The film has helped kick off a comeback for Murphy.Later this year, the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member will host the show for the first time since 1984 .
