Brushing up on his role as Axel Foley [of the] Bevery Hills Cop franchise-scheduled for a 4th installment release (2016) that originally premiered in 1984 and served as the movie that launched the already working comedian to actor status; Eddie Murphy is either serious as hell about “give me 50 feet,” or really into character [in preparation for shooting].
The Beverly Hills Cop funny man thought it was all but funny that while exiting his favorite California liquid nicotine spot Coffee Bean a motorcyclist on the way in pulled his motorcycle a bit too close to his fancy smancy Rolls Royce at such a distance that his lady love Paige Butcher (whom he met in 2006 while working on the movie Big Momma’s House 2) would have had to squeeze in to get into the passenger seat with a tray of 4 coffee drinks in hand (considering the passenger car door to motorcycle ratio and proximity).
Paps caught every photo in the pictures that told a thousand words in which, it was obvious Murphy would have preferred the motorcyclist go on and move his motorized vehicle a few feet away from the passenger door so that Paige could get in to the Rolls and the could leave.
From the looks of things, the Raw & Delirious comedian
…although point proven, either didn’t get his way, or decided to be diplomatic about it all by cutting the argument short and backing his car out enough such that Paige could get in comfortably.
Eddie Murphy, an industry vet who began as a comedian since the early 80s, turned actor (mid 80s-2000s),
…[then on his “Rick James sh!t”], turned singer (mid-to-late 80s)’s
…is not one for getting in on the social media craze. And you probably don’t hear much Paige Butcher (who’s 18 years Eddie’s senior and also linked to model Tyson Beckford), said in an interview with Vanity Fair (regarding social media) “I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there. ‘I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access.”
Eddie is the brother of comedian Charlie Murphy, father of eight children, ex-husband of Nicole Murphy (VH1s Hollywood Wives), and ex-boyfriend and father of former Spice Girl (Mel B)’s daughter Viola.
Beverly Hills Cop fans are in for a treat as Eddie did indeed sign on to reprise his role as Axel Foley in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced film which is scheduled for a March 2016 release and will be shot where it all began and where “Axel Foley”’s from: Detroit.
Eddie, 53, not looking a day older than the “Axel Foley” we all know and love from the franchise, will surely not disappoint—provided we give him 50 feet?
Alls I know is…as a connoisseur and fan of all things Eddie Murphy, I cannot WAIT to see him imitate this guy that I KNOW he is standing there studying–using for “material.”
You gotta know Eddie Murphy to understand that. I’m laughing right now.
