Other than voicing Donkey in Shrek and his straight role in Dreamgirls he's done virtually nothing since the 80's which is a massive massive shame. But looking through his filmography he hadn't done as many movies in the 80s as I thought.

I assume you mean he has been in nothing good because he has released movies pretty steadily over the intervening years. The Doctor Doolittle films, The Nutty Professor and the sequel, the horrendous Norbit, Holy Man, the one where he is both a miniature alien and a spaceship, Daddy Day Care, the recent Tower Heist with Ben Stiller and several others have been rubbish in the main but most of them have made decent money.
