It's tough to be a Klump, even if you're Eddie Murphy.

The comedian spent up to five hours every day in the makeup chair to create the six characters he plays in the movie "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps," opening next week.

"I can tell you that I've seen many films on video, played every video game, heard every album. . . . I've seen it all in that chair," Murphy said this week.

As sweet, dumpy genius Sherman Klump, he again faces his "Nutty Professor" nemesis Buddy Love. In addition, four Klump family members who sat at the dinner table in the first comedy return for the sequel.
