Underappreciated Characters: “Inspector Todd”

Character: Inspector Todd

Film(s):  Beverly Hills Cop Trilogy

Real Name:  Gil Hill

Favorite Line: “Don’t think, Axel!! It makes my dick itch!”

The man spends almost his entire amount of screen time lobbing expletives at Eddie Murphy’s ever toublesome “Axel Foley” and owns the screen when the two interact, which is no easy feat considering this is Eddie Murphy at the peak of his powers.  Gil Hill apparently spent a lengthy career in the Detroit police department before playing “Inspector Todd” , which is probably why he has the commanding presence he does.  I don’t think being a police commander in Detroit is easy work, so working next to Eddie Murphy was no trouble I’m sure.  In my own sick mind I’d like to believe he was researching his role while he was employed as one of Detroit’s finest.  It paid off.

Check this clip out, pretty awesome mix of Inspector Todd moments….
