Most successful post-SNL career

As I was watching last night's rerun of SNL with Will Ferrell as host, I started thinking about the successful actors who have come out of SNL in the past few decades. At first, I wanted to say that Ferrell had to be one of the best, but then I got to thinking about the Mike Meyers and Chevy Chases.

So...who would you consider to be the most successful SNL member ever?

Eddie Murphy. He was such a phenomenon. Unfortunately, like most SNL stars, he's ruined his legacy pretty irrevocably. Mike Meyers has The Love Guru. Chevy Chase has the last 20 years or so. Adam Sandler has been successful box-office-wise but is extremely hit-and-miss in terms of quality. Will Ferrell is risking his legacy if he keeps making crap like Land of the Lost.

Bill Murray probably has the best combination of success and respectability at this point. He's turned into a legitimate dramatic actor, too.

Norm MacDonald is far from the most successful, but I think he's the most consistently funny (even if his screentime seems to be limited to talk show guest spots and the like).

Eddie Murphy.

Unfortunately he has trashed his legacy with the sh*tty trifecta of Norbit/Meet Dave/Imagine That. WTF Eddie????

Just because he hasn't been mentioned I'll throw out Adam Sandler. He's made a freaking fortune...

I'm going with Bill Murray.

Eddie Murphy would get consideration.

Yea, I don't know how there could be a debate.

Sort of depends how to determine successful. The question wasn't who turned out to be the best actor.

Murphy's grossed over $6.2 billion
Myers' grossed over $3.3 billion
Murray's grossed over $2.6 billion
Sandler's grossed over $2.5 billion
Ferrell's grossed over $2.3 billion
Chase grossed over $1.1 billion



Financially, Murphy's still the runaway winner. Looking at movie quality, range, longevity, etc..., I'd personally go with Murray (Murphy second, because money does talk), although I can understand those who'd disagree.

Yes but then again Sandler was clearly mentioned right in the first post.

Personally I like Chevy and Sandler. Christmas Vacation and almost all the Happy Madison productions are tops for me.

Interesting. It does definitely depend on how you define success. I guess in my mind, I'd think of it in terms of a "body of work" rather than financially, but they kind of go hand in hand.
