12:51 PM PT – We just got new pictures of Eddie in full regalia like Akeem !!! He seems to be holding scripts, so it might just be a rehearsal before calling out "Action" for real. But … this is a TRUE being, people.
Lemme hear you make a joyful noise – Arsenio Hall returns his iconic characters for "Coming to America 2" and we have pictures of Rev Brown ready for his sermon in the sequel !!!
Eddie Murphy and Arsenio look back in the midst of things as the photos go on in Georgia. This is the first time we see any of the celebrities in full costume and makeup.
Of course, Arsenio famously played 4 different characters – Semmi, Morris, Extremely Ggly Girl and Reverend Brown – in the original movie, and on Friday he appears to be making a scene as the proper Reverend. Notice the hair is gray … After all, it's been 30 years.
Eddie was willing to watch carefully … to watch things in a black hood and sunglasses. No sign of Prince Akeem or Randy Watson and sex chocolate yet.
Tracy Morgan and Leslie Jones also filmed scenes in full costume, along with another new addition, Lunel .
We're still waiting to see Michael Blackson get involved, but in the meantime … see the photos of everyone else in action.
The movie is expected to release in December 2020.
