'Coming 2 America': Eddie Murphy Confirms Randy Watson and Sexual Chocolate Are Returningby GregHarmon
Jackson Heights very own is returning in 2020....
Yes, you read the headline correctly. Eddie Murphy is getting the band back together for Paramount's Coming to America sequel!
Murphy confirmed the news at the TIFF premiere of his upcoming biopic Dolemite Is My Name. According to Murphy, Jackson Heights - Mr. Randy Watson - and band Sexual Chocolate will be one of a few “familiar faces” set to return in the sequel now officially titled “Coming 2 America.”
Fans of 1988's Coming to America will undoubtedly remember Reverend Brown's (Arsenio Hall) ceremonious introduction of Murphy’s Randy Whaaatson. While Watson’s rendition of Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All” didn’t necessarily win church-goers over, Watson and Sexual Chocolate would go onto become an unofficial permanent fixture in cinematic pop culture history.
Of course, if we're talking the return of "familiar faces" the next name we better be talking about is Darryl Jenks.
Coming 2 America is set to hit theaters August 7, 2020
