CBS is looking to cast character actor Brandon T. Jackson in the lead role of their small screen adaptation of Beverly Hills Cop. Jackson has had roles in several films that include Tropic Thunder, Lottery Ticket, Fast & Furious Percy Jackson; Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son and more.
Jackson would play Aaron, the son of Eddie Murphy‘s character Axel Foley. Murphy is also planning to reprise his original role in a guest-star capacity. His son would be the main focus of the series, helping take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills while trying to escape the shadow of his larger-than-life father.
The series is being developed by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, and like the film, the series will be a mix of action and comedy. I think Jackson is a solid choice to take on the role, what do you think?
