C'mon Hollywood: Let's get Jim Carrey back on track!

We all know that Jim Carrey is a funny guy. With a resume full of projects that range from ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE and LIAR LIAR   to his work on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and IN LIVING COLOR , it's hard to find someone who hasn't been amused by at least one thing he's appeared in. However, as funny as Carrey can be, his filmography isn't without its clunkers, especially lately....

C'mon, Hollywood: Make like Matthew McConaughey and shape up your actors!

I've gotta be honest: Matthew McConaughey never was one of my favorite actors. His never-ending streak of romantic comedies were never my cup of tea and the stoner-surfer vibe kind of threw me off. Sure, I've seen my share of his movies including REIGN OF FIRE and SAHARA , but no performance or movie of his slapped me right across the face with its brilliance. However, that all...

Eddie Murphy will be back as Axel Foley for Beverly Hills Cop 4

Paramount is moving forward rather quickly on what will be BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 with Eddie Murphy back on board.

But, as Ryan was overseeing the...

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

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,...

Tropic Thunder's Brandon T. Jackson will be the son of Axel Foley for Beverly Hills Cop TV show

Remember that television adaptation/reboot of BEVERLY HILLS COP? Well, they finally found the guy to play Axel Foley's son, Aaron. I can't say I told you so, but I knew that they would choose Brandon T. Jackson. The show focuses on Aaron, "a blue-collar police officer, the younger Foley works to take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous, while trying to escape...
