brandon t. jackson *Eddie Murphy’s “Beverly Hills Cop” character Axel Foley has found his heir apparent.

As we reported last month, Brandon T. Jackson has officially been tapped to star in CBS’ “Beverly Hills Cop” TV pilot.

The show, described as a dramedy – centers on Foley’s son, Aaron, a cop working in Beverly Hills as he does his part to escape his famous father’s shadow.

If you’re wondering, Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as the wisecracking detective in the pilot and could recur should the project go to series.
