EXCLUSIVE: Judge to Eddie: Don’t Kill Billy in ‘Beverly Hills Cop’

Judge Reinhold "Cops" a plea

Judge Reinhold "Cops" a plea

Judge Reinhold is jonesing for a starring role in Beverly Hills Cop IV – rather than getting whacked during the opening credits.

In an interview airing Monday, August 11 on BlogTalkRadio, Judge tells Movie Geeks United host Jamey DuVall that although he’s “dying” to reprise his role as detective Billy Rosewood in the next installment of the blockbuster Eddie Murphy series, his character’s fate is still up in the air.

“I don’t know if Eddie wants to completely scrap everything and start a new franchise,” says Judge. “Historically, the reason Eddie has to come back to Beverly Hills is to avenge somebody’s death – and I hope it’s not Billy that gets shot in the head… I don’t want to kill Billy off.”

Judge feels so strongly about reprising Rosewood, in fact, that he urges fans to put pressure on the studio!

“Anybody listening, write Paramount, because I’d love to be in the movie!” says the actor.  “I want to put it right.  I want to do it for Don Simpson” [who co-produced the first two BHC flicks before passing away in 1996].

And Judge, 51, who co-starred in Beverly Hills Cop (1984), BHC II (1987) and BHC III (1994), has no shortage of ideas for his character’s development in BHC IV.

“I’d love to see Rosewood on the bomb squad… Give the guy some heavy explosives… I wanna blow some crap up, man!” he says, before musing, “I’d love to see him on one of those Segway bikes. What if he’s a Segway bike cop?”

Meanwhile, Judge is not shy about trashing his role in BHC III.

“It was such a mistake to have Rosewood climbing this bureaucratic ladder… I was so disappointed when they gave me that bureaucratic, dead-end job,” he says.

Slated for a 2010 release, Beverly Hills Cop IV will be directed by Brett Ratner, the wonderkid behind the Rush Hour series.

Movie Geeks Welcome Brian De Palma

Brian De Palma, famed Hollywood director, will be a special guest on Movie Geeks United! to talk about his new film “Redacted.” BlogTalkRadio welcomes Mr. De Palma to social Internet radio.

Redacted De Palma will join the Movie Geeks at 10pm ET to discuss the new controversial film “Redacted.” The film, set for limited release next week, is quickly becoming the most controversial film of the year, if not the past decade. It tells a thinly veiled ‘fictionalized’ account of a group of American soldiers in Iraq. As an article in The Ledger, indicates:

“The segment will focus on DePalma’s latest film, “Redacted,” a controversial pseudo-documentary based on the rape and murder of an Iraqi girl by an American soldier. DePalma’s previous directing credits include ‘Scarface,’ ‘The Untouchables’ and ‘Mission: Impossible.'”

Without doubt, this film has been getting the buzz. Host Jamey DuVall said of Brian De Palma:

“The Movie Geeks and our family of loyal listeners are honored to welcome Mr. De Palma to our program…He is truly one of the great cinematic geniuses of our time.”

Actors from the film are also set to appear for tonight’s show.
