“I felt like old man,” Murphy quipped to Al Roker. “I did Beverly Hills Cop when I was 21, and I’m 63 now.”
He continued, “Now, I would rather not do any stunts. We were shooting something and the director said, ‘I want you to come out of this place and run down those steps.’ After we shot and he’s like, ‘Can you come down with more urgency? Faster?’ And I was like, ‘No!'”

Eddie Murphy On Beverly Hills Cop

Eddie Murphy introduced the iconic character of Axel Foley in the 1984 film Beverly Hills Cop. In this original installment, Foley defies protocol and journeys to California in order to investigate the murder of his childhood friend, Mikey Tandino, portrayed by James Russo. The film was a tremendous success and paved the way for two subsequent sequels, released in 1987 and 1994, respectively. Murphy reprised his role as Axel Foley in these follow-up films, continuing the thrilling adventures of the street-smart detective in the glamorous and unpredictable world of Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills Cop was my first movie that I’m the lead in. If I travel overseas they call me Axel Foley,” he said. “Axel is an everyman. He’s not a superhero or a super-cop, he’s the everyman that rises to the occasion. I think that’s why people like it. And more than anything, he’s funny.”
