After feature roles in two of this summer's biggest hits--"Beverly Hills Cop II" and "RoboCop"--Ronny Cox finally sports one of Hollywood's most recognizable faces, if not its most recognizable name. He believes he's putting that new, improved recognition factor to good use in his next project, an after-school special about AIDS. "If you're in a series or a popular film, people start thinking of you as someone they know," Cox says.
