Wesley Snipes joins the cast of the Coming 2 America, other cast revealed


If you can't be Blade then... be in a different movie

I keep forgetting that a sequel to Eddie Murphy's comedy classic Coming to America is actually happening and then I remember and once again learn that it is called Coming 2 America and lose a little bit of my soul. Wesley Snipes on the other hand gained some income as he's now going to star in the film, which has a number replacing a word in the title

The sequel no one asked for sees Eddie Murphy's Prince Akeem return to America once again to search for his long lost son. Arsenio Hall is returning as well and Snipes will be playing a new character named General Izzi. Reports also reveal that Teyana Taylor and comedian Michael Blackson are joining the cast and Louie Armstrong is set to return. 

Does any of this actually get anyone excited for this movie? Coming to America is a timeless classic, but Coming 2 America sounds like a straight-to-VHS sequel that you don't even want to watch when it comes up late night on cable. Where is the demand for this at all? Now, give me more Beverly Hills Cop and I'll be a happy hypocrite.
