Stand-up comedian Brandon T. Jackson has landed the plum role of Axel Foley’s son in the Beverly Hills Cop television pilot being developed for CBS by Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and the original Bhc himself, Eddie Murphy.
As Aaron Foley, Jackson — whom our sister site Deadline says was suggested by Murphy for the lead — will play a transplanted Detroit police officer now fighting crime in tony Beverly Hills, all the while trying to escape the shadow of his infamous tailpipe-banana-ing dad. Murphy will guest-star in the pilot and possibly recur if CBS orders the pilot to series.
