Kevin Hart Shafted Over Part Of Axel Foley’s Son?March 14th, 2013
Cut Short In Beverly Hills Cop TV Series?
HSK Exclusive – If Kevin Hart were a little bit taller, Sony execs may have stuck to their original plans of casting him as Axel Foley’s son in the TV series ‘Beverly Hills Cop’. Sources say the comedian’s 5’2″ height is what led execs to cross him off their list. OUCH!!! That’s before we’re told actor Brandon T. Jackson was chosen to fill the role.
Hart’s reported short comings come as insiders reveal production of the television series begins today, March 14th. We’re told Judge Reinhold will be returning as a cast member — with Eddie Murphy heading the project as executive producer.
Here’s what a Sony Picture executive had to say:
“We were thinking of Kevin Hart to play the part of Axel Foley’s son, Aaron, but he’s too short. We all thought about it, but we all came to the decision that Kevin is too much of a clown and he’s too ugly. If you don’t believe me.. Ask Miguel A. Núñez, Jr.”
