Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold Will Reunite for CBS’s ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Pilot

By

CBS is producing a pilot called Beverly Hills Cop, based around Axel Foley’s son Aaron Foley (played by Brandon T. Jackson), and it looks like the stars of the original movie will be reuniting for the pilot. It was previously announced that Eddie Murphy, who’s executive producing the show, will guest star in the pilot (and possibly in future episodes if Beverly Hills Cop gets picked up), but The Wrap reported yesterday that Murphy’s BHC co-star Judge Reinhold will also be appearing in the pilot. Reinhold’s role will only be a cameo, but he and Murphy will probably appear onscreen together. The Wrap says that his character Billy Rosewood has received a big promotion in the police world. The report doesn’t mention whether or not Axel Foley’s character has been promoted or not, but I’m assuming he hasn’t because his policework has always been marred by his refusal to play by the book and his insistence of doing that funny laugh.
