Surprise Cameo Sparks Speculation of Shared Netflix Universe

Ever been on the lookout for familiar faces in your favorite movies? Well, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, the new action-comedy on Netflix, may have something for you. Fans are noticing a surprise cameo that might actually link two of your favorite comedies together. Can you guess who it is? Let’s get into it.

Christopher McDonald as Shooter McGavin… Again?

Mr. McDonald, known to most of us as the ever-infuriating Shooter McGavin from Happy Gilmore, appeared in Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F. Now, it’s not the character, but McDonald’s portrayal that’s making fans all abuzz. They’re saying he seems a lot like Shooter, with his angry golfer persona. Who knows, maybe there’s more to these resemblances than meets the eye.

A Shared Universe Perhaps?

So why this speculation, you ask? Well, the common link here is Netflix, the film giant behind both movies. Coincidence or not, this cameo is definitely turning heads. Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler, the stars of the two films, have worked together on Saturday Night Live. Could this hint at more crossover appearances?

Just imagine seeing Axel or Billy Rosewood from Beverly Hills Cop showing up in Happy Gilmore 2. Sounds fun, right?

The Director’s Take

So what does Mark Molloy, the director of Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, have to say about this? Well, surprisingly, he claims he doesn’t know much about Happy Gilmore’s sequel. But he did share how McDonald became part of his movie.

In conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, Molloy explained that he was discussing a role for a golfer with casting director Mary Vernieu. That’s when he thought of McDonald. He wanted a cameo that would stand out, and rightfully so, McDonald was an obvious choice. A known face in the movie landscape, McDonald was sure to keep the viewers hooked. However, Molloy insists there’s no back story, he was simply looking to make the film more captivating.

Cameo is a Hit Among Fans

Well, whatever the reasons may be, the McDonald cameo is a definite hit among fans. But remember, all these theories of a shared universe are merely speculations, without any official confirmation.
