Tracy Morgan Joins Eddie Murphy in ‘Coming 2 America’
Tracy Morgan will join the cast of Paramount’s “Coming 2 America,” the sequel to Eddie Murphy’s 1988 cult comedy.

Directed by John Landis, “Coming to America” followed Akeem (Murphy), the spoiled prince of a fictional African nation who protests against an arranged marriage set by his father, King Jaffe Joffer (James Earl Jones). Traveling to America, he goes undercover as a fast-food employee while searching for a woman to take as his wife with the help of his friend, Semmi (Arsenio Hall).

The sequel will follow Akeem as he returns to New York to find his long-lost son and groom him to become his successor to the throne. Morgan will play the son’s uncle, a hustler named Reem whose sister, played by Leslie Jones, gave birth to the unwitting heir after a one night stand with Akeem.
