Billy Rosewood and Axel Foley will get together again.
Judge Reinhold, who played by-the-book detective William “Billy” Rosewood in the “Beverly Hills Cop” movie series, has signed on for a cameo in CBS’s “Beverly Hills Cop” pilot, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
Reinhold will reprise the role of Rosewood – who has scored a big promotion from his old job. Murphy, who is serving as a producer, will also appear in the pilot, reprising his Axel Foley role.
CBS has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
The “Beverly Hills Cop” pilot, which comes from “The Shield” creator Shawn Ryan, is a continuation of the movie franchise, centered around Foley’s police officer son (Brandon T. Jackson), who takes down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.
Sony Television is producing the pilot, which will also star Kevin Pollak.
