Time to let your Soul Glo.

We have no idea how Wesley Snipes was welcomed into the Coming to America 2 family, but we'd like to think that the producers and cast replicated a famous barbershop scene from the original.

Clarence: Oh, there they go! There they go! Every time I start talking about boxing, a white man gotta pull Rocky Marciano outta their ass! That's they one! That's they one! Rocky Marciano! Rocky Marciano! Lemme tell you something once and for all! Rocky Marciano was good, but compared to Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano ain't shit!

Saul: He beat Joe Louis's ass!

Morris : That's right, he did whip Joe Louis's ass!

Clarence: Joe Louis was seventy-five years old when he fought!

Morris: I don't know how old he was, but he got his ass whooped.

Clarence: Joe Louis had come out of retirement to fight Rocky Marciano! The man was seventy-six years old! Joe Louis always lied about his age! He lied about his age all the time! One time, Frank Sinatra came in here, and sat in this chair. I say, 'Frank, you hang out with Joe Louis. Just between me and you, how old is Joe Louis?' Know what Frank told me? He said 'Hey, Joe Louis is a hundred thirty-seven years old. A hundred and thirty-seven years old'!

Ok, we're not saying that the star of Blade and Money Train is 137-years-old, but we are saying that he can still whip some ass.

And Snipes will be able to show off just that as he has been cast as a new character, General Izzi, in the highly-anticipated sequel.

Snipes' character has been described as a military man who rules a neighbouring nation of Zamunda. He seems like the perfect fit to us.

Elsewhere, fans will be delighted to know that James Earl Jones will be reprising his role as King Jaffe Joffer for the sequel.

Rick Ross, Leslie Jones, and Kiki Layne have also been cast for the sequal and they'll be joined by Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, who will reprise their beloved roles from the original film.

In the sequel, Akeem (Eddie Murphy) is set to become King of Zamunda but discovers he has a child he never knew about in America – a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle. Honouring his father’s wish to groom this son as the crowned prince, Akeem and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) set off to America to meet the unlikely heir.

Again, all we're asking is that Randy Watson and Sexual Chocolate make an appearance.

Coming to America 2 is set for release on 18 December, 2020.
