Eddie Murphy Wanted Everyone From Coming to America to Return Back –

Murphy returned back as Prince Akeem of Zamunda as well as barber Clarence, his customer Saul and singer Randy Watson. In the 1988 Coming to America, Akeem came to Queens and get fall in love. He then got a job at McDowell’s, a McDonald’s knock off and fell for Lisa McDowell. Murphy said that –

“We wanted to bring everybody back from the original,”. “We have to bring [them] back from where the story left off. Me and Lisa went off happily ever after so it was like okay, how do you connect the dots? It would be kind of funny if McDowell had opened a McDowell’s in Africa and he could be there. Who would make the most sense and how could we connect the dots the best? That’s how we picked who would be in the movie.”

Vanessa Bell Colloway Played the Role of Imani Izzi –

Imani Izzi in Coming to America is the woman to whom Akeem was betrothed. And fortunately we are going to see her again in Coming 2 America and she is still holding a grudge.

Vanessa said that –

“My character, I think she still had a few issues,”. “Her brother came to her defense, who is now Wesley Snipes. So she still has a few issues. Her growth and development was a little stagnant compared to some of the other characters, because she was caught in a time warp because she still felt like she was wronged. And she was, to a degree.”

The Crew of McDowell’s –

Everyone loved McDowell’s. Some restaurants set up McDowell’s in real life. Eddie has been already revealed that McDowell’s opened in Africa. John Amos will come back as founder Cleo McDowell and Louie Anderson came back as Maurice. Maurice was a Akeem’s boss in the first film and now he is been promoted. Anderson said that –

“He has made some strides,”. “I don’t want to ruin it for everybody, but let’s just say he is not washing lettuce anymore.”

Cleo is still explaining how all of McDowell’s products are totally different from McDonald’s.

“To work with Eddie is, for my money, easy, because he’s always on point,” Amos said. “He seems to know intuitively exactly where you’re going with your character and he goes along with you. To say I enjoyed it, that’s an understatement. I mean, I look forward to it. I probably had crevices in my face from smiling and laughing so much. But in the serious moments that we had, the few very serious moments, we got them through like a trooper, like a Shakespearean trained doctor.”
