Stranger Things and Mad About You star Paul Reiser was spotted on the set of Netflix’s Beverly Hills Cop : Axel F a couple of weeks ago. Out promoting his new series Reboot, the year-old actor spoke a little about reprising cop Jeffrey for the first time since 1987’s Beverly Hills Cop II.
Reiser, who didn’t appear in the ill-fated Beverly Hills Cop III, stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Taylour Paige, James Preston Rogers, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, and James Aviel in the Mark Molloy-directed pic.
Reiser joked with /Film that he tries to “help Eddie [Murphy] out whenever I can and to boost his career. So it’s an honor.”
The Aliens actor said Murphy still looks as good as he did in 1984, “I was finally glad to see that he actually didn’t quite look 23 anymore. It’s like, a year ago, this f***ing guy looks exactly the same.”
“We were chatting,” Reiser said, “and I remember, I was at his 21st birthday party, which was at Studio 54, or whatever Studio 54 became. And now, we’re in our 60s, even Eddie’s in his 60s. I’m like, ‘That’s a long span. We’ve been doing this a while.'”
Reiser said his scenes involve driving – assumingly, based on the set pics, driving Murphy either to or from the Detroit airport.
