Just after Beverly Hills Cop starts it shows some parts of Detroit.

About 1:45 in the movie appear 3 people looking at the street and it looks like one of them (the left one) is Russell Crowe.

enter image description here

I tried to search on the internet. IMDB doesn't have him in the full list of actors. Some person on another site claims it is him indeed.

Does someone have another source to confirm (or negate) that this is him?

    Doesn't look anything like him IMHO. – iandotkelly Mar 9 '14 at 14:07
  • My wife asked it to me. At that moment I was persuaded to believe it could be. But since someone as him on Twitter (se answer) she was not the first to think it. – Vitor Canova Mar 9 '14 at 14:17

Russell Crowe tweeted an answer to this three years ago:

Ha ha, I don't think I could grow a beard when the first Bev hills cop was being made

(the movie was released in 1984, Russell Crowe was born in 1964)

  • agreed -- he was 20 in 1984 (when BHC came out). He wasn't on the Hollywood radar for another 8 to 10 years. – rosends Mar 9 '14 at 13:34
  • And even more than that he was living on the other side of the world back then. – Napoleon Wilson Mar 9 '14 at 13:37
  • @NapoleonWilson - regarding your edit, I prefer to let the quote stand on it's own. People should draw their own conclusions. I think the quote is short enough to not need a "summary". – Oliver_C Mar 9 '14 at 14:03

    @Dan agreed he was not on radar at that time. But about a 20/yo guy with so much beard I had a 18/yo workmate that had more beard than Wolverine. :D – Vitor Canova Mar 9 '14 at 14:40

    I want to give this answer a +1, but the use of the word "twittered" instead of "tweeted" is putting me off :P – Andrew Martin Mar 9 '14 at 17:56

Crowe has very distinctive facial moles. This fellow, although he bears a resemblance, does not have those moles. Also, in the 80s Crowe was very very thin.
