"Beverly Hill Cop" has its new star.

Stand-up comedian Brandon T. Jackson will play Axel Foley's son in television pilot being developed for CBS by Shawn Ryan ("The Shield") and the original Beverly Hills Cop himself, Eddie Murphy.

As Aaron Foley, Jackson -- whom Deadline says was suggested by Murphy for the role -- will play a transplanted Detroit police officer now fighting crime in Beverly Hills, all the while trying to escape the shadow of his infamous father.

Well, becoming a cop and moving from Detroit to Beverly Hills should do the trick.

Murphy will guest-star in the pilot and possibly make an occasional appearance on the show if CBS orders the pilot.

Jackson's acting credits includes "Tropic Thunder," (where he played Alpa Chino) and "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son."

CHANNING TATUM IS MIGHTY SEXY: Channing Tatum is People magazine's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive

I can't believe I lost again.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" said Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009. "I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

Says the actor: "She was like, 'What?'"

"Yeah, she calls me (the Sexiest Man Alive) now," he said.

Her Alabama-bred husband is also a sculptor who quotes Edgar Allan Poe, loves to give her massages and can't wait to start their family.

He probably also loves puppies and long walks on the beach.

"I'm ready; I think she's ready (for kids)," Tatum, 32, says. "The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that."

"It's really easy for us guys to say, 'I want like 15 kids,'" he said. "Jenna will be like, 'Well you better get another wife!'"

Currently training to play an Olympic athlete in next year's "Foxcatcher," Tatum is all heart and muscle at 195 pounds. "I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can't move well and I like to move," he says. "When I'm not training, I get really round and soft."

That must be awful ... being Channing Tatum and being "soft."

Which is just fine by his wife. "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is," says Dewan-Tatum, 31. "He is such an openhearted person; what you see is what you get."

The rest of the list will be in the new issue of the magazine, which comes out Friday.

HOPE SOLO GETS MARRIED TO MAN WHO ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTED HER: Hope Solo and Jerramy Stevens got married Tuesday, a day after Stevens was arrested in Kirkland, Wash. on suspicion of committing fourth-degree assault on Solo, injuring her elbow during a party that turned into a brawl.

The ex-Seattle Seahawk and soccer star dated for all of two months before taking the plunge. They supposedly argued over where they would live.

Apparently they've decided.

"Events of yesterday morning didn't change plans," Mahler tweeted, referring to Stevens' arrest. Stevens spent the night in jail and was released later Tuesday after a judge decided there wasn't enough evidence to charge him.)

The King County records office confirmed to E! News that the pair applied for a marriage license last Thursday.

Although Hope herself has yet to tweet about her purported wedding, her Team USA soccer teammate, Jillian Loyden, appeared to hint at the nuptials. "Happy to witness such an amazing celebration of real love #selflesslove #fewandfarbetween," she tweeted early Wednesday morning.

If that's real love, I'd hate to see what happens if they decide they no longer like each other.

JON BON JOVI'S DAUGHTER HOSPITALIZED AFTER ALLEGED OVERDOSE: Jon Bon Jovi's daughter was arrested for suspicion of drug possession after she may have overdosed on heroin.

Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, a 19-year-old student a Hamilton College in Kirkland, N.Y., was expected to be released from the hospital Wednesday, according to People.com, citing a police report.

Officers and a volunteer ambulance squad were called to Stephanie's dorm about 1:51 a.m. Wednesday to assist a woman who had possibly overdosed on heroin and was not responsive, police said.

After finding a small amount of heroin, police arrested student Ian S. Grant, 21, who, like Bongiovi, is from Red Bank, N.J. A later search of the dorm also turned up additional heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, police said.

Bongiovi was then arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. Both charges are misdemeanors.

"In addition to violating state law, the actions alleged to have been committed by the students violate Hamilton College policy," the college said in a statement to WKTV. "The college is cooperating with the police investigation. Our first concern is always for the safety of our students. Out of respect for the privacy of our students and in accordance with federal regulations we do not discuss individual health or disciplinary matters."

MICHAEL JACKSON'S ASSISTANT SUES: Michael Jackson's former assistant Michael Amir Williams has sued concert promoter AEG, saying he lost out on a massive paycheck because AEG negligently employed Dr. Conrad Murray for Jackson's "This Is It" series of shows.

Murray was eventually convicted of manslaughter for administering the dose of Propofol that killed Jackson.

A rep for AEG told TMZ, "This lawsuit is clearly frivolous; it is literally barred by at least four different legal doctrines."

Yeah ... well, is it barred by the Monroe Doctrine, smart guy?

Sorry. That made about as much sense as this lawsuit.

Anyway, AEG contends Williams doesn't have a case because he was never a beneficiary of Jackson's contract with AEG, so he can't legally bring a claim for Jackson's wrongful death.

As far as AEG is concerned, Williams' lawsuit is an attempted money grab that won't work.

"This is just the latest wrongful death lawsuit with someone hoping to profit from Michael Jackson's tragic death in the same way they profited from his life."
