“Lil Hercules” From Nutty Professor Is 35 Now, Details On What He’s Doing Now

Posted On : August 5, 2018

Remember “Lil Hercules” a.k.a. “Eddie Klump Jr.” from the “Nutty Professor” and “Nutty Professor II: The Klumps”? He was the only other person in those infamous dinner table scenes with Eddie Murphy’s characters. His mostly non-speaking role was crazy funny and he left a lasting impact on everybody watching. Basically, “Lil Hercules” was paid to sit at the dinner table with the “Klump” fam’; eat soul food; let off a round of farts just like his “daddy” “Ernie Klump Sr.”; laugh; and most importantly, show off his muscles at dinnertime so “Mama Klump” could proudly clap and cheer her baby on with “Hercules, Hercules, Hercules!” Well that was then and this is now…


Actor, Jamal Mixon, was 11 years old when “Nutty Professor” released in 1996 and he had us rollin’ as we watched do his thing at that dinner table with “Mama Klump,” “Granny Klump,” “Papa Klump,” “Ernie Klump Sr.,” and “Buddy Love” (all played by Eddie Murphy). Today at 33, he goes by the name Jamal “Big Herculeez” Mixon. Here is the grown up “Herculeez”…

“Mama Klump’s” baby is all grown up now! Jamal Mixon is 35 years old, but still recognizable as the cat who played “Lil Hercules” in “Nutty Professor.” He probably can’t walk down the street without somebody hollering “Hercules, Hercules!” Jamal takes it all in stride and even refers to himself on social media as Jamal “Big Herculeez” Mixon. He’s still an actor to this day and has just wrapped filming on a pretty popular TV show.

By the way, who remembers Jamal’s brother, who was also a young actor? See what his brother looks as like as an adult…

Jamal’s big brother/actor, Jerod Mixon, (above, L) is now 37 years old and you may remember him from the 2000 film, “Me, Myself, & Irene” where he played one of the adopted sons of Jim Carey’s role, or in the 2003 movie, “Old School” and a bunch of other roles…

Jamal’s more recent roles was be in the 12th season of the TV sitcom, “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” which airs on FXX cable channel (a sister company of the FX network). One of the show’s stars is fellow old schooler Danny Devito, who most of us know as “Louie” from the 80’s sitcom, “Taxi.” It’s good to see the Mixon brothers are still doing their thing today.
