    I need a list of any and all action movies or tv shows that feature a "Angry Black Police Captain" I know there are many but all I can think of off the top of my head is Beverly Hills Cop. Anybody got some titles out there??


    Thanks!!

    His screen time is very limited, but how about Loeb in Batman Begins? He may not be the exact stereotype you want, but I thought I'd throw it out here.

    Throw Chi McBride's name into the IMDB, and that's probably half of what comes back. [​IMG]

    Beverly Hills Cop - Axel Foley's [Eddie Murphy] boss, Inspector Douglas Todd [Gilbert Hill]. A little bit of trivia, Hill actually was a police officer in Detroit.

    I have to second, third and forth Captain Trunk from Sledge Hammer!, you just haven't seen an angry black police captain until you've seen this poor man who was constantly on the verge of a complete nervous breakdown because of Hammer. [​IMG]

    Have to disagree with The Terminator, though, Traxler was a pretty cool customer and didn't come off angry at all.
