John Amos is craving the opportunity to work with Eddie Murphy once again on the upcoming “Coming to America 2” … and he’s got a delicious reason why he should reprise his role as Prince Akeem’s boss.
We spoke to John, who plays McDowell’s owner Cleo McDowell in the OG film, after news broke Friday that Craig Brewer is coming on board to direct the sequel … and John gives us his pitch for why he belongs in the reboot. Disclaimer: you might get hungry after listening to John’s wild ideas.
It’s interesting … John tells us he hasn’t been formally contacted to come back for seconds, even though Paramount Pictures is reportedly intent on bringing back the original cast, which includes Shari Headley, Arsenio Hall and James Earl Jones.
Watch … John is bubbling with ideas for the sequel, if and when the producers hit his line.
He went on to say, “I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!”
We broke the story … construction got underway last year at Barack and Michelle‘s D.C.-area home — which they’re renting until Sasha graduates — and a brick wallwas being built to fortify the property … where secret service has been assigned to protect the former First Family.
BTW … the Obamas are also building anin-ground pool at the pad, as well as a terrace of some sort … this according to building permits we’ve obtained.
With all that in mind, it should go without saying … Trump’s rationale makes zero sense here. Also, keep in mind … the federal government has been partially shut down over this.
