Coming To America fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. After a week’s worth of casting announcements, from everyone to Rick Ross, Kiki Layne and Leslie Jones, John Amos and Shari Headley have signed on to reprise their roles in the sequel, Coming 2 America.
Fans will also be excited to know both James Earl Jones and Paul Bates are reprising their roles as King Jaffe Joffer and Oha.
Earlier this summer, Jermaine Fowler (Sorry To Bother You) had been rumored to be a part of the cast, as Prince Akeem’s son in the Kenya Barris-produced film.
Reportedly, the new plot sees “Akeem, now set to become king, discovering he has a son he never knew about, a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle. Honoring his father’s dying wish to groom his son as a new crowned prince, Akeem must once again return to America.” Sounds promising. Back in April, Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall met with Oscar-award winning Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter for preliminary fittings for the sequel.
Coming 2 America hits theaters Decemeber18, 2020.
