Before They Were Stars: Chris Rock in “Beverly Hills Cop II”

It’s Chris Rock’s birthday today, so we shall celebrate by showcasing his very first acting role. Rock was doing the stand-up comedy circuit in the mid-80s and wound up befriending Eddie Murphy, who was a big fan of his act and helped him get a brief bit part as a parking valet in Beverly Hills Cop II. I shall refrain from commenting on the quality of Beverly Hills Cop II, since that’s the sort thing which can get me hate mail.
