Kevin Bacon on what made him choose Beverly Hills Cop 4

Upon being asked about his decision to be a part of the popular franchise, Beverly Hills Cop, Kevin Bacon responded by clearing out that he is a fan of the franchise too. "I love the franchise," the actor started off.

"I watched them when they came out. Eddie is, you know, an iconic force of an actor. Has been doing such great stuff for so many years," Kevin went on to praise his co-star. 

"He's done so many great characters, but it’s (the franchise) clearly the one that has stood the test of time. I mean, the fact that you wanted to see four movies that have Axel in them. And this one is called 'Axel F' also. So that's an indication that you know what he created with that character really has a lot of resonance."

"So to be a part of that was thorough," Kevin concluded.
