Coming 2 America Cameos

This week brings Coming 2 America to Amazon Prime, and it’s already an overstuffed affair, with Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall and almost everyone from the original returning for another round. Murphy and Hall are also playing multiple characters again, just as they did in the first movie, but there was once an idea that would have had Murphy playing more characters in a single film than he ever has before.

The Searching sequel may have just found one of its cast members: Storm Reid. The Wrinkle in Time and Invisible Man actress is in negotiations to join the follow-up film being directed by Will Merrick and Nick Johnson.

The cable network known for keeping the love for classic films alive is kicking off a new series tonight called Reframed: Classic Films in the Rearview Mirror. With films ranging from the 1920s through the 1960s, the series will host discussions about 18 culturally significant films that are considered classics of cinema but also have problematic aspects to them. The hope is to provide context so that the films can both be appreciated and scrutinized. Read More »

As of now, it sounds like none of them are locked down to return, and that makes this entire endeavor slightly suspect. But original creative team Rob Thomas, John Enbom, Paul Rudd, and Dan Etheridge are all back, and that’s a plus.
