The top half of the banner picture comes from Cracked, who the other day had a great list about actors who make the same face in every movie, one of them being Eddie Murphy.  This led us to wonder: Was Eddie Murphy the original model for Dreamworks Face™?  I say no.  Not toothy enough.  But it’s definitely his “I wonder if that’s a tranny” face.

thanks to AJ for the eyebrows heads up.
