Tracy Morgan has joined the star-studded cast of Eddie Murphy’s comedy Coming to America 2. According to WENN.com via Deadline, the 50-year-old stand up comic signed up to star in the highly-anticipated sequel, which sees Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall reprise their iconic characters Prince Akeem Joffer and his faithful servant, Semmi.

Coming to America 2 follows Murphy's Prince Akeem, who is set to become the king of his home country, Zamunda, after his father King Jaffe Joffer (played by James Earl Jones) falls ill. But Akeem discovers he has a son whom he sired while on a pleasure trip to America.

Honoring his dying father, Akeem and his friend Semmi set off to America to meet the young man, and try to help him assume his rightful place as prince of Zamunda.

Saturday Night Live veteran Leslie Jones plays the mother of Akeem's son, and Morgan will portray her hustler brother, Reem (pictured below).

Eddie caught flack when the original movie premiered in 1988. Black women were outraged after Akeem dismissed his beautiful African bride-to-be (played by Vanessa Bell Calloway) for a LSLH woman in America.

Wesley Snipes, Rick Ross and Kiki Layne are also set to star in the sequel, which is scheduled for release in December 2020.

Murphy, Hall and Snipes were spotted arriving on private jets in Atlanta where the sequel is being filmed.

    Wesley back on the screen!!!!!!!

  • ALLMINE?

    She'll be good.

  • WhoKnew

    This movie is going to be hilarious. Can't wait.

  • Starburst

    This is the best that I've seen Leslie.

  • Gamer????? Chick

    When did this”encounter”happen.... I would have preferred that he and Lisa had a son and sent him to do the same as Ahkeem. We really don’t need a sequel though.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Ill wait on the bootleg...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I pray and hope that they do not portray Leslie as a desperate "ugly" woman who is thirsting for attention from Prince Akeem...Im tired of that narrative being pushed on her... but I guess she has to be the one to break out of that box...

  • Maxx

    They had me at Coming To America 2! I will be there

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • fawkery

    shiiiiiit, say no more family. Will be supporting black hollyweird excellence!

  • Pamela

    Love Wesley Snipes arrogant azz. Always enjoy his movies. I wonder if he still has his fake Namibian passport ????

  • Fire & Ice

    I hope she's not portrayed as ghetto. Eddie has a habit of portraying dark skin women in the worst way.

  • Kanyade

    This cast overfloweth with comedic talent. I just hope the writing is good. https://media1.giphy.com/media/J9NUht5CDE3Is/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • sunni_daze

    Huh? When did he sire a child, I watch Coming to America once a week and he didn't smash no chicks.

  • sunni_daze

    Because too much can be too much.

  • Shawty

    Can't wait to see it. Hope it's worth all the press it's being given.

  • Ni Ni

    I hope he sired the child while he was out sowing his royal oats before he got with lisa. The show was a black fairytale. I hope they don't ruin in by Akeem becoming a hoemongerer afterwards.

  • iWasteTime

    Keeps getting better and better

  • KarmaBackAround

    Oh and u KNOW she will be!

  • Coy little wink

    On a pleasure trip to America that was not part of the original film

  • Coy little wink

    It has to be Epic...nothing less will suffice ?

  • KarmaBackAround

    I cant wait to see it.. this should be good! For all of you thinkin what im thinkin.. yes Leslie will be the loud ghetto baby mama from queens with a hustler brother! ????

  • Mz_Opinionated

    We really don't...not no damn 30 years later. They getting outta order now.

  • Sha

    She does look good, coming into her own.

  • Fire & Ice

    Based on Murphy's track record, most likely you're right!

  • Nik

    LOL!!

  • Wish I was on another planet

    I feel this movie will be a hot a$$ mess but im going to see it tho https://media3.giphy.com/media/9r2V0ugkY1ER49OW1n/giphy.gif

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    1 for $5 3 for $20

  • Kay J

    NO........thank you!

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    I was JUST saying this. Marlon Wayans and Eddie Murphy....both have a habit of always making black women look loud, ghetto, shady, ill-mannered, etc. Makes me think that this is how they see us ...esp since they dont necessarily really date black women. And yall dont come for me on Eddie and his half black loose in the pants ex-wife.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    So...would the way they portray black women be considered in a way.. kinda like....a new version of black face?...or naw? Just asking...bc I dont find their portrayals funny. It's always these brash caricatures of black women. They never play, professional, well spoken, mild mannered classy women. Ijs...

  • dblogged

    Movie ruined now

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm going to support just because but...

    She is extremely unattractive to me. Idc. Idc. There were already some colorism issues with the first movie that I have chosen to overlook. That being said, I've never seen her be anything but loud, semi-masculine. thirsty and ignorant. And that in contrast with his light skin, feminine, educated, demure wife may be too much. Representation matters.

  • TamG

    Oh no. Looks like the movie took a slapstick turn. I don’t like stupid slapstick “comedy.” It’s not funny to me. And the first movie wasn’t slapstick; it was genuinely funny and clever. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed at or been amused by Jones or Morgan. I’m surprised Eddie Murphy is going this route. Is he giving up and just throwing everything at the wall? I don’t get it. I was actually looking forward to this movie til now.

  • Rayne

    I’m going to support cause I love Eddie Tracey and all of em and stuff. I’ll be there.

  • Rayne

    Just what I said in my head. But im still going tho.

  • Angelique Johnson

    Its good to see a black cast of talented actors come together. I hope it works. I like the first one.

  • Bree

    Noooooooo!

    This is going to be a disaster!!! Coming to America is a classic. Now it is ruined with this foolishness! They enlisted Leslie and Tracy for what!?

  • Let them eat cake

    she looks so cute. its so funny because her and tracy totally look like they could be siblings!

  • stav

    Was already thinking this, I'm sure we're right...sadly!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Bree

    It is very typical of us to have the ghetto baby mama somewhere around. I hope her role is the opposite of that.

  • Dre Clemons

    Black women were outraged? Or was it just you Sandra? Anyway, this film premise does not sound good at all. This will flop. Hey Eddie I got a premise for a movie. Picture this! A big Hollywood star gets busted having a fling with a Trans hooker and the hooker is found dead a year later. ?

  • Bree

    I believe he is! My favorite scene with him was when he introduced King Jaffe to Mr. McDowell in the restaurant

  • stav

    Well alright then!

  • JALC

    Right! This movie is a cult classic. It should be left ALONE! I'm not supporting this debacle.

  • Dre Clemons

    Thats probably the character!! Leslie isnt much better though. She will do any role if the price is right

  • TheWildChild

    Good ? maybe they'll cast her sister, "Portia" from Empire. It is a 'Comedy' so I'm not expecting her role to be dramatic or mushy cute ????? .... BTW Marlon's movie on Netflix "Sextuplets" was ?-cute.

  • Bree

    I'm not either. I'm so disappointed that Eddie and Arsenio were okay with this. I'm a huge fan of this film, but just as I said about the Lion King, I say the same about this. Tracy and Leslie's comedy is not needed for this film anyway. And we have already seen Tracy as hustleman on the Martin series. I don't want to see a rerun!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Marlon(whom I attended the premier last week of "Sextuplets") worked VERY hard on it. He actually cried at the premier when he spoke to us about the grueling schedule. Spending over SIX HOURS for make up with each character. With 16 hour days.

    What I like the most is he gave credit to Eddie Murphy for the inspiration of doing it.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Yes sextuplets was cute it was a light hearted movie I liked it

  • Bree

    That would have been a great plot! I'm so tired of the stereotypes in our films. We do have healthy, successful marriages and families. Nobody family or marriage is perfect but this is ridiculous. In this film, Lisa, already had to overcome finding out Akeem was a prince, now she has to find out he has a son, which makes any son they have second to the throne. I'm disappointed.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ???*looking around* Dare I say... Leslie looks GOOD in those pics!

  • Pamela

    She does.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Portia is her sister for real?? If so, I can see the resemblance!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Ummmm the original didn’t show him ha omg a fling with someone in America he was only interested in Lisa McDowell and didn’t they get married? Soooo...... smh I hope they can tie it all together and it not have plot holes and forced storylines. Oh and is this part of eddies Netflix deal? ?

  • Bree

    I haven't seen Sextuplets but from what I have heard from a friend, it is okay. Seems Marlon is the only Wayans still working in Hollywood unless his family is behind the scenes. Haven't heard much from the Wayans

  • sunni_daze

    Oh, okay. That may work for the people unfamiliar with the movie.

  • sunni_daze

    Right. I'd rather see him and Lisa having a son and all that.

  • Bree

    I believe that is exactly what they will have. Akeem's focus wasn't sowing his royal oats as his father so eloquently told Lisa. I'm disappointed in this plot! The original had depth and soul. This plot takes away a lot from the original.

  • Bree

    Exactly! He went to bars/clubs to find a wife, not get laid. I wonder how the writers will flip this script.

    Yes, it's a corny-cute flick that reminds me of all cross-dressing movies like Norbit, Big Mama's House and The Klumps characters. He played them all ?

  • Carrington

    The fact that Rick Ross is in the cast hath revealed thine eye of side...
    First of all, anytime a movie just throws random rappers, singers and, youtube folk with no acting credit, or ability, in the cast for the sole purpose of reaching that persons audience, I get pissed.

    This movie doesn't need to do that. Eddie Murphy alone can carry this film with a bunch of TALENTED nobody's.

    I'm almost sure that this will reach a huge audience from MY generation of folk who fell in love with the original. My generation, who will likely bring their children who also watched it on DVD (and VHS) at our houses.

    We don't need Tracy Morgan and that hoodrat, pimpish buffoonery thing he does. The original film was done very well - with class - and still managed to be entertaining and funny... the introduction of a hustler brother, Leslie Jones as a loud mouthed hoodrat baby mama and, the non-acting rapper to this once "classic" black film has added a dynamic that I'm not interested it - but that's just MY opinion.

    I'm going to give y'all a chance to prove me wrong, but I am not real pleased as of this write-up.

  • OUBoyWonder

    Damn, I want to see this because like most of yall, CtA was/ is a black folks CLASSIC. But shit, Leslie Jones has never been anything more then loud, ghetto, bug-eyed and mammying up everything she's been in. I'm holding out hope that they reel that crap in and make her..."normal". I seriously doubt it but here's holding out hope.

  • Li-Wright

    A movie with THESE many stars and comedians is bound to be bad. TOOOO many marquee comedians. I read somewhere that when this type of movie is made (have they written the script yet? ), all the actors try to get the best lines and the most lines. And somebody is angry at the end because their scene was cut or they didn't have enough lines to say.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Nigga had the nerve to tell the IRS that he didn't have to pay taxes because his pastor said so.
    The IRS was like what? who is your pastor?
    We're coming to get you.

  • Li-Wright

    ^^ THIS ^^ I feel the same way about Eddie's Dolemite.

  • T Willis

    I don’t know, part of the magic of the original was Eddie/Arsenio’s dynamic and their characters. I don’t want to be introduced to a new set of characters, with a script that focuses on the son. That was the issue that I had with Shaft 2, which was also on Netflix. Too ghettofied, and too much focus on the son (that Shaft didn’t know about)?????. I hope Coming 2 Amer. Doesn’t follow that same script because Shaft 2 was trash.

  • Li-Wright

    Marlon does a lot of cross dressing roles. He seems (or his brother) to make the same roles over and over where he puts on a dress.

  • T Willis

    I don’t know about this...
    Eddie has been off his comedic game for the last decade. I don’t think the sequel is going to be as good as the original. Too many celebrities, too many opportunities for stereotypical koonery (I’m looking at you, Leslie..), and the plot is too thin. Where does Lisa M fit into the new narrative? Why can’t the premise for the sequel anchor off the original plot? Eddies character, Akeem, was presented as this moral, upstanding man of character and integrity. And this is what they reduce him to? A baby father to a ghetto hoodrat in Queens? I’m so disgusted lol. I’ll wait for the trailer to drop, but right now I don’t think it’s going to get my coins... but I’m sure it’ll do well (like the Lion King) because of the fan base from the original.

  • yvette46

    Only time darker skinned black people get roles are in playing African characters especially woman. But if there's a love interest in this movie she will be see through. Not supporting sell out Ed..

  • OUBoyWonder

    You. Aint. Ever. Lying. CtA was smart, hella funny, topical and can be put out TODAY and still hold up. This chicanery you mentioned is exactly my concern. Ugh, I wrote earlier about LJ cooning it up with her eyes bugging, being loud and over the top BM antics. I sincerely hope we both are wrong and they do the sequel the respect it deserves.

  • T Willis

    And what’s up with these black sequels on Netflix that involve long lost kids? First Shaft 2, and now Coming 2 Amer.? It’s such a lazy way to anchor new characters. Plus, that Shaft sequel was f*cking horrible! That black guy that was casted as the son of Shaft, couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag. Then they had the audacity to make him the focal point of the film! Lol. Like, these producers are determined to ruin the few black classics that we have?????.

  • OUBoyWonder

    Yes, the "long lost child I never knew about" trope has worn its welcome OUT. Especially nowadays, Negroes aren't just having long lost kids from some random woman coming at them after 18 years (after child support would have ran out, lol). Oh, you KNOW about that lil booger...just trying to act all "What?! I had a mystery child this entire time?!" Whuteva, Craig...you knew!

  • KLo

    I can't wait to see the cast of new characters in this movie

    It says pleasure trip so im assuming its a different trip than the one in the original movie

    Its ok to watch one time the sister and the hustler brother were funny but the mama and the fat brother were just big monma house and nutty professor rippffs

  • Mary

    Sorry - Leslie looks a "hot mess" in these photos.

  • Phillybruh

    Only thing that is saving this for me is that its being helmed by the people who do Blackish and Grownish.

    I'm not a fan of Leslie or Tracy. They are both unfunny to me.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yup smh

  • sunni_daze

    Me either, buuuut I'm still gonna go see it.

  • n1kk1a

    That maths a little off! ?

  • Fire & Ice

    Ikr. I don't want to ruin the excitement for anyone but it is what it is. This movie is filled with a bunch of colorist black men; Eddie Murphy, Marlon Wayans, Wesley Snipes. These guys don't date black women and are comfortable making us the butt of the joke.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I hope so too but we all know eddie smh

  • KarmaBackAround

    We know eddie lol but we shall see!

  • Bree

    There's a Shaft 2!? Oh my gosh!

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    That's how I feel...I'll watch but black women being the butt of the joke is played out.

  • Bree

    I hate ripoffs. Marlon is a comedic genius to me. He could do better!

  • Rere

    Ummm she is not, nope not gonna say it. They should have gotten Lynn Whitfield, Angela Bassett, Loretta Five or damn, whats her name who plays Tina Turner mom ??????

  • Bree

    I'm disappointed Eddie decided to do this sequel. He and Arsenio are legendary. So are the original cast members.

  • Shenanigans1

    Ohh so maybe he went back after he got married.

  • Shenanigans1

    She will. She will be lesdogg in all her splendor.

  • Fire & Ice

    Right! So played out

  • Fire & Ice

    Embracing it huh lol

  • GinJen

    Let's be honest here..that type of BW that you described is a rarity in the black community. I can't muster up enough outrage for how we are portrayed in media because just about every BW I encounter on a daily resembles what's being portrayed.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Love her but that is one ill fitting dress..

  • Bree

    Jenifer Lewis (mother of black Hollywood)

  • GinJen

    I bet they will use the drunken, one night stand plot

  • Dreadboi

    Can't have males and especially black males being protrayed as strong upstanding heads of households in this day and age where you are suppose to uplift the woman,black girl magic and the like or you will not work again..

    That's not hollywoodand society in this day and age and if eddie wanted to get back in the game he had to conform..

    The strong male role in society is over thanks to the #metoo toxic masculinity movement..Todays men are the same men as those from a generations or two ago who wouldn't put up with bs today

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    Man! I STRUGGLED on this responce. I went back and forth between agreeing on this one and disagreeing. It's a mix for me. I see "profesh" and classy and THEN I also see the other-other lol. It could be just what these Male comedians see.....but what stereotypes apply to white women? I know people assume that Asian women are docile and meek. I dont see many stereotypes applying to white women in visual media.

  • WhoKnew

    You already know she will be especially since bro man from da 5th flo is gonna play her hustling brother.

    I see where the struggle is...and I too have the same struggle..The struggle is this; we KNOW that there are professional, classy BW out there..we KNOW that there are MANY of them...we also know that there are MORE ghetto, loudmouthed, obnoxious, angry BW than there are professional, kind, meek ones. We would like media to atleast portray the good BW..but they dont.. the struggle is that they CAN portray us in a negative light because there are too many of us that act like what's portrayed...We would like to see what is rare vs. what's in abundance...

    Angela Bassett( whom I just saw just a few weeks ago at the premiere of her new movie 'Otherhood') has a hot body.

    Loretta Divine (Whom I worked with on a few things including 'Grey's Anatomy') is a hard worker & sweet.

    Jenifer Lewis(whom I worked with in "Strong Medicine") is EXACTLY like U would think she would be times FIFTY.

    "Eddie caught flack when the original movie premiered in 1988. Black women were outraged after Akeem dismissed his beautiful African bride-to-be (played by Vanessa Bell Calloway) for a LSLH woman in America."
    _______________

    Sandra, you are so used to typing the word "outraged" that now you are just making crap up. I don't remember a single black woman -- not one-- being "outraged" about the marriage outcome of CTA. As I recall, the only person expressing "outrage" was Art Buchwald, who sued Paramount for stealing his idea for the movie. After a 4-year case and a court award of only $150k, Paramount eventually settled with him for $900k (they were afraid they would lose on appeal)

  • Rhondalousey

    This movie is going to be a train wreck. Why is tracy morgon unfunny ass in this?

  • Rhondalousey

    Amen.

  • ???TheRider???

    Tracy Morgan is NOT funny and that tbs show with Tiffany Haddish is awful! Hope he doesn’t ruin the movie.

  • IamAllnatural

    I don’t want to see either one of them in a movie. Leslie is too loud and obnoxious and Tracy is loud and not funny. Why Eddie why...??

  • Rhondalousey

    Why would they get Leslie and Tracy's non funny azzes? They might as well have gotten the original Patrice or some other characters that were in the first movie. That would be more memorable than adding randoms in there. This is going to be a disaster, watch.

  • Rhondalousey

    100% right.

  • Rhondalousey

    Oh no.

  • Junkanoo

    There's a severe drought of creativity in Hollywood .Leslie Jones is perfect for B - horror movies I could see her in some remakes of 50s horror films like "The Thing" " It Came from Beneath the Sea " " Creature from the Black Lagoon" the list is endless .

  • Minx Mosaic

    FACTS!!! And did they say Rick Ross was in it too? You're right, STRAIGHT DISASTER!

  • Vintagenyc

    This will be a disaster. Akeem did not make any children in part 1. He was a man of honor. Arsenio's character chased the women. Lastly, how would he go from Lisa to this ugly woman? No, no......just no.....

  • NeverSurprised

    I'm not a Tracy Morgan fan either, OR Leslie Jones for that matter. But Eddie and Arsenio are so great together that I amlooking forward to this.

  • NeverSurprised

    I remember when Arsenio had his talk show. When Eddie would come on the two of them were HILARIOUS together -- just sitting and talking. Well Eddie was doing most of the talking and Arsenio was laughing his ass off.

    wow, this is a weird twist of events. from lisa to leslie jones? the sequel must be more of a comedy

  • Minx Mosaic

    Oh Wow! I didn't know Arsenio was back in it. I totally missed that part. Ok, now my worry meter has gone from a 10 to a 5. The remaining 5 is strictly because of Tracy and Leslie.

    This should be one hot mess in the making the prince sires a baby out of wedlock with an uncle from the hood....ok

    That makes no sense! He chased Lisa the WHOLE movie.

    That's a no for me. I'll stop looking forward to it now.

  • rayne215

    i actually think thats the twist, the kid is arsenio's. only thing that would make sense

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I vividly remember the anger and outrage expressed by Black women at Akeem for making an African beauty bark like a dog, while he leaves Africa to find a LSLH chick in America. Trust, Eddie didn't forget the backlash. That's why he made Leslie Jones the mother of Akeem's son.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I recall Black women were outraged that Akeem made a Black woman bark like a dog, while he rushed to America to wife a LSLH chick.

    Akeem: "I want a woman who will arouse my intellect as well as my loins!" This implied he didn't think African women were intellectual. The backlash back then was brutal. Why do you think Leslie Jones is now the mother of his son?

    I remember those 'interviews' to. You always felt like they had their own inside jokes, they would be laughing so much. During one of their interviews Eddie said Spike Lee looks like a cricket. I remember cracking up.

  • hottlanta

    That is why moesha went off the air. Frank was suppose 2 be the upstanding dad n he had a outside child. Sheryl lee ralph was livid.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Weird, seemingly out of and all over the place, ugh not interested anymore...?

  • JazzyBossyJen

    That show was closet to different world and Cosby as could be in the rise of social media..And that type of family image was not to survive in that era. Smh

  • Allihave2say

    Humph! Not a fan of Leslie or Tracy. They are two cuts of the same fabric as people, actors and in the looks department. I guess I won't be going to see this.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I just cannot look at her the same after she let that white boy put his thang where the sun don’t shine

  • Dre Clemons

    The backlash was brutal??? Well it sure didnt appear that way at the box office.

    288 mil WW. In 1988. So with inflation that is 626 mil in 2019......But whatever you say Sandy.

  • Silently Moving

    I cant stand tracy non funny/over acting ass.

  • missluv60

    Oh my (gasp), please explain...

  • T Willis

    Very true

  • Dreamer

    Seriously, it’s just crazy. I can’t believe this mess is what the plot is going to be. Plus Rick Ross is going to be in it and I can’t stand him, so it’s an easy no thanks for me on this film.

  • the guest

    Eddie Murphy is a natural star.

  • lilli lilian

    What, you say he be over acting corny lines, LOL

  • chris

    For sure. And the more outlandish and stereotypically you act the more roles you'll get. E.g. tiffany haddish

  • chris

    I wouldn't say it a rarity but for some reason even the classy ones want to be and associate with ratchedness. That's black culture for you.

  • chris

    Only black people constantly showcase the worst of us. Everyone else hides it. When ima see some meth and heroine addict white shows or some entering the county illegally Hispanic shows??

  • chris

    She only thirst for white men

  • chris

    Tracy not funny
    Leslie not funny

    Movie sounds like straight ??????

  • Nathan Hastings

    ughhhh

  • MrsSpice1

    noooooo ill just watch the original one!! This sounds as awful as the sequel to tales from the hood....some classics do not need a remake or sequel!! ??? thats how you know these times are boring af everything is being remade!! Back then we had back to back classics!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    A very scrawny white boy she was dated posted their intimate pics online lots of oral and anal sex

    what about the movie "Friday"
    do you think they should continue that w Ice Cube's son & dc young fly

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    Oh and I forgot about Jamie Fox...with his lil Wanda character back in the day. And he act like he allergic to black women.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Nah remember the whole Drake thing...i got second hand embarrassment for her...

  • OUBoyWonder

    The LAST thing I needed to know was "Leslie Jones- Anal sex". Well, I guess that's it...I now denounce all religion.

  • Madashelle

    What about "The Attack of the 50 foot Woman"?

  • Branch Davidian

    Leslie Jones makes Madea look like Halle Berry. This movie is going to suck

  • lovelygamour

    I think it went off the air because brandi and her family took over too much.

  • lovelygamour

    maybe she means black women from outside the usa. cause the only complaint I have ever heard is calloway cant act.

  • lovelygamour

    the write ups said the movie was about the shaft the third but they put sam Jackson upfront to trick people. as they was making the movie they should've realize it was corny. I haven't seen it but you can tell from clips. lol.

  • lovelygamour

    just like norbit.. I will wait for clips and reviews because I have a feeling this movie will be meanspirited to regular black people. like norbit had a good message but the stereotypes is what made it cruel.

  • lovelygamour

    if they was being true to the Akeem character he would've found out ages ago. Akeem would've wondered about her and called, then he would've found out about a baby.

  • lovelygamour

    95% of the time I like leslies clothes, jewelry, and makeup. people don't like her cause she is tall. she has a nice shape.

  • lovelygamour

    if this is just going to be eddie making fun of black women again I will pass.

  • Trace da Ace

    Oh I cant wait!!!! I have high hopes for this sequel.....hope it pulls though...

  • yvette46

    I'm right behind you clips and reviews..

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    I bet it won't be funny...

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    Madea is a whole man...

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    I didn't know tales from the hood had a sequel.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    I'll answer for her hellno.

  • Cricket404

    Nah, that dog don't hunt anymore. Times have changed.

  • teather

    Get Down, Leslie!! She looks good! They never style her right; this dress is great on her- make up, hair, all of it. Nice

  • https://disqus.com/home/discussion/freakkboxshawty/freakkbox_on_strikingly B A B Y ?

    lol

  • chris

    I dont follow her like that only on snl I'll check out tho ty.

  • Mary

    Wow - interesting how folks have different opinions. I thought she looked a "hot mess". And, was asking myself - why did they let her go out looking like that? Truth is somewhere in the middle.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The backlash didn't affect ticket sales. But Black women called into radio shows and complained about it.

  • Frank Blunt

    The Royal penis is clean your highness

  • Frank Blunt

    Right! I need an Unsung on Randy Watson, yeah!

  • Junkanoo

    ? She would be perfect for that part

  • 1BlueStar

    Nope, dont ruin the original! Leslie Jones in anything makes it horribly ridiculous. She "cheapens' the culture

  • Tanya Te

    nooooooooooo, I pray they don't ruin the original.
