Judge Reinhold to rejoin Eddie Murphy on CBS' Beverly Hills Cop series

03.07.2013

For a long time, I held out hope for a quality BEVERLY HILLS COP IV that never came to fruition. Probably a good thing as Brett Ratner was attached to it for a while. But, when news began swirling that CBS would develop a sequel television series and that Eddie Murphy would appear as Axel Foley, I was excited. While the show will focus on Axel's son, played by Brandon T. Jackson, knowing Eddie would be back in his classic role gave me some hope that it may be a decent follow-up.

Add to those two the latest news that Judge Reinhold will appear in the pilot as his BEVERLY HILLS COP character of Billy Rosewood and now I am very eager to see how the show turns out. Rosewood will, according to The Wrap, have gotten a promotion since the third film in the series. While they are calling it a cameo, the potential to have both returning cast-members in the series lends a lot of credibility to the new series, even if it is on CBS.

Okay, to be fair, CBS may be the NCIS network and aim at mostly middle-aged audiences, but I have to admit I like ELEMENTARY quite a bit and having that show back to back with BEVERLY HILLS COP sounds like a nice one-two punch. I must firmly recommend they offer Judge Reinhold a regular status on the series or I will be boycotting.

Shawn Ryan (THE SHIELD) is producing the pilot which also stars Kevin Pollak. There is no date for when the show will air, but I would bank on it premiering this fall.

I wonder what the DDOJSIOC is up to these days.

Billy Rosewood is a boss. Having said that, if he and Foley and potentially Taggart aren't fully involved in this all the time than my interest will potentially be going with them. I'll give it a fair shot, but I want these guys back doing business, not being used for just a pilot.

spoilers below

It's a fantastic surprise at the end of the pilot, Rosewood is the mayor of Beverly Hills! I'm really hoping that he becomes a recurring character, assuming the series is picked up.

Sounds great. Now just get Serge as the weapons designer for the LAPD and we're in business. This has the potential to be great.
Or they could just greenlight another season of "Mock Trial with J. Reinhold."

"Judge Reinhold regular status or I will be boycotting"

Reinhold is the linch pin!

I dunno about the call to boycott but just having him in the pilot at least is a boon.

Maybe if the series does well then it can lead into a part 4 after all.

You'd think that studios would realize after Indiana Jones 4, and A Good Day to Die Hard, that we could care less about the children of action heroes.

No R rated. No go. In any format.

It's done. It won't last. And will be forgettable.

Until Foley comes back in his R rated glory...nothing will work.

The end.

I miss R rated Eddie Murphy. I wish he'd go back to his roots and be funny and awesome again.

Billy Rosewood..

CBS?

The Beverly Hills Cop series should be on HBO or AMC at least to give it less censorship. That's like trying to watch the Sopranos on basic cable.
