Kevin Pollak Cast in CBS's 'Beverly Hills Cop' Reboot

Last month, CBS greenlit a pilot for a TV version of the popular '80s movie series Beverly Hills Cop, and now comedian/actor Kevin Pollak has been cast in the show in a supporting role, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show, also titled Beverly Hills Cop, will star Brandon T. Jackson as Aaron Foley, the son of the franchise's original protagonist Axel Foley. Created by The Shield's Shawn Ryan, the Beverly Hills Cop show is described as "an hour-long crime procedural with comedic elements. " Pollak will play Rodney Daloof, the loudmouth bullyish in-house lawyer for the Beverly Hills Police Department. Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Axel Foley as a guest star in the pilot episode. I'm assuming he's not interested in being on the show full-time because he doesn't get to wear a a fatsuit.
