Kevin Pollak to Co-Star in CBS' 'Beverly Hills Cop' Pilot
He'll play Rodney, the in-house lawyer for the BHPD and a stickler for the rules.
CBS' Beverly Hills Cop reboot is adding to the BHPD staff.
Funnyman Kevin Pollak has been tapped to join the hour-long pilot from The Shield's Shawn Ryan and Eddie Murphy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Described as a continuation of the movie franchise, the pilot centers on Axel Foley's (Murphy) police-officer son, Aaron (Brandon T. Jackson), who takes down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills while working to escape his famous father's shadow. Murphy will reprise his role as the wisecracking detective in the pilot and could recur should the project go to series.
Stand-up comic Pollak, whose credits include playing a D.A. on Shark, will play Rodney Daloof, the in-house lawyer for the Beverly Hills Police Department. He's described as incredibly risk-averse, a stickler for the rules and a loud-mouthed bully.
The potential series is described as an hour-long crime procedural with comedic elements, with Ryan (Last Resort) on board to pen the Sony Pictures Television script and executive produce along with his MiddKid Productions partner Marney Hochman and Murphy.
Pollak, a noted impressionist who most recently has been hosting his own online interview show, is repped by Buchwald Fortitude, Evolution and Nelson Davis.
