Dave Chappelle salutes Charlie Murphy at John Mayer concert
Adam Sandler was on Good Morning America on Thursday (April 13), and he started out his visit by bringing up comedian and Eddie Murphy's brother, Charlie, who died Wednesday, saying he "loved" Charlie.
Charlie Murphy passed away Wednesday at the age of 57, a rep for the comedian confirmed to ABC News.
Mr. Murphy appeared in 52 films, and co-wrote and acted in some of his brother's movies, including the 2007 comedy "Norbit".
He was perhaps best-known for his appearances on Dave Chappelle's Comedy Central show.
Murphy lampooned real-life run-ins with stars such as Prince and Rick James in a famed bit called Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories. DJ Whoo Kid joined in on the tributes to Eddie Murphy's brother by releasing an old interview they did together back in 2011.
