American actor Judge Reinhold expressed surprise today to learn he is a late addition to President Trump’s shortlist of nominees to replace Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court.
“It’s a great honor, I guess.”
Reinhold said he has had no communication with the President and is at a loss as to why he was selected.
“I have no judicial experience, so I guess it’s because my first name is Judge?”
Reinhold also has law enforcement experience of a sort, which he suspects may have factored into Trump’s decision to shortlist him.
“Not to boast but I felt I was pretty damn convincing in Beverly Hills Cop and Beverly Hills Cop II.”
Asked about his opinion on Roe v Wade and other political hot buttons, Reinhold demurs.
“It would not be appropriate to comment now on matters that will likely appear before me on the bench.”
