Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall joined Jimmy Kimmel Monday night to talk about Coming 2 America.
The movie premieres this Friday on Amazon Prime.
They shared some movie tidbits.
Eddie said Tracy Morgan was to be his son. Then they realized he wouldn’t be believable in the role so they recast him.
Jimmy asked how did Louis Anderson get cast in the first movie.
Eddie said the movie company, Paramount, said they needed a white person in the movie, they couldn’t have an all black cast in 1988.
They were given a list of people to choose from but Eddie and Arsenio decided to go with the funniest white person they knew which was Louie Anderson.
Louis is back in the sequel.
