Eddie Murphy Plays Rudy Ray Moore in Netflix’s ‘Dolemite Is My Name’

The Dolemite Is My Name trailer is just as outlandish and unconventional as blaxploitation legend Rudy Ray Moore was in real life. But Moore turned himself into a star by morphing into the provocative, cussing, pimping hustler Dolemite who cracked jokes, thrilled women, and slayed bad guys. The film is based on the true story of "Godfather of Rap" AKA Rudy Ray Moore who went from being a comic to changing the film game since introducing his blaxploitation character Dolemite in the 1970s. He then decided to make what became his breakout 1975 cult classic film Dolemite.

If you're new to Dolemite lore, you can find collections of the old movies on Amazon as well as some of Moore's other works. Co-starring Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Titus Burgess, Keegan-Michael Key, and Luenell, Dolemite Is My Name is set to premiere at TIFF next month before heading to Netflix. "I'll put my finger in the ground and turn the whole world around", Moore says in the Dolemite trailer, as he kicks, punches, and shoots his way across Los Angeles.

In addition to director Craig Brewer, Dolemite Is My Name is from writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who co-wrote of some of the greatest biographical films ever, including Ed Wood and The People vs. Larry Flynt. Nonetheless, his ambitions exceed promoting bootleg data deemed too racy for mainstream radio stations to play.
