Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold in Beverly Hills Cop

A Beverly Hills Reunion: Eddie Murphy's Beverly Hills Cop TV reboot keeps sounding better and better. Judge Reinhold, who played the "by the books" detective William "Billy" Rosewood in the film series of the same name, will make a cameo in CBS' pilot, right alongside Murphy. He'll take on his former character, who has since been promoted. [The Wrap]

He's Still Watching...: Oh sorry, was one bit of nostalgia casting not enough for you? Well, Anthony Stewart Head — AKA, the "Watcher" Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer — has been cast in The CW pilot The Selection. Head will play King Clarkson, the patriarch in the royal family of a Hunger Games-esque dystopian society some 300-ish years in the future. [TVLine]

Full House Plus Scream Equals: I Am Victor, NBC's upcoming drama pilot, has cast Scream alum Matthew Lillard as Victor (John Stamos)'s best friend Elliott, an "off-beat, off-books former cop" who helps his divorce attorney friend acquire info. [Deadline]

She's Keeping Calm: Kelly Preston has landed the starring role on ABC's family comedy pilot Keep Calm and Karey On. She will play Karey, the clean-nosed black sheep in a family of petty thieves, drug addicts and narcissists. When her brother is sent to prison, she decides to raise his kids along with her adopted African-American son and give them the normal lives they deserve. [THR]

Comedy Heavyweights Join Mulaney: After lengthy negotiations, Elliott Gould and Martin Short are set to co-star opposite John Mulaney in his untitled multi-camera comedy pilot for NBC. The show is a young ensemble loosely based on Mulaney’s life. It centers on John (Mulaney), whose naïve, and often pointless, desire to “be a good person” challenges his friendship with his roommates Jane and Seymour. Gould plays John’s gay neighbor. Short plays Lou, a game show host John writes jokes for. [Deadline]

The Trend Continues: The Harlem Shake will probably never go away, but we're okay with that if it means more footage of Supernatural star Jensen Ackles awkwardly shaking what his mama gave him:
