OFFICIAL: The entire gang are back for Coming to America 2

More joy than a Randy Watson and Sexual Chocolate reunion.

While there's no doubting that the main draw of Coming to America was the comedic dream team of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, it's easy to forget the litany of wonderful supporting characters that featured in John Landis' comedy.

No, we're not just talking about characters like Clarence, Saul, Randy Watson, Reverend Brown etc. that Murphy and Hall also played.

James Earl Jones dominated every scene that he was in as King Jaffe Joffer, John Amos' portrayal of Cleo McDowell gave us the iconic line "Say another word about Lisa, and I'll break my foot off in your royal ass", and even Samuel L. Jackson's tiny performance in the following scene is still incredibly memorable.

You just have to love that delivery.

After the recent news that James Earl Jones and Wesley Snipes were joining the cast of Coming to America 2, we're delighted to say that Shari Headley will be returning to play Lisa McDowell and she'll be joined by John Amos as her on-screen father, Cleo.

Paul Bates will also be reprising his role as Oha, King Joffer's right-hand man and assistant.

We already knew that Akeem (Murphy) and Semmi (Hall) will be back for the sequel and as for new cast members, Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Rick Ross and KiKi Layne will all co-star in the Craig Brewer-directed movie.

The events of Coming to America 2 pick up with Prince Akeem as he finds himself on the cusp of becoming the new King of Zamunda.

However, he discovers that he has a son he never knew about in America – a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle. Honouring his father’s dying wish to groom this son as the crowned prince, Akeem and Semmi set off to America.

At present, the film is scheduled for release on 18 December, 2020.

After all the recent casting news, we're only asking for one thing - another meltdown from Randy Watson.
