2 of 10: Eddie Murphy lands in second place on the Forbes list. Though he's appeared in the hit 'Shrek' films, he's had a string of flops lately that include 'Meet Dave' and 'Imagine That.' Hopefully, his new release 'Tower Heist' will perform better. According to the magazine, 'For every $1 Murphy is paid, his films return an average $2.70.'
