Tomorrow, the highly anticipated Zamundan sequel Coming 2 America arrives! In anticipation, we spoke to Jermaine Fowler about his debut as newly found Prince Lavelle!
Directed by Craig Brewer, Coming 2 America takes place decades after the original and sends a newly minted King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) back to New York City to meet the adult son he only just found out about. Lavelle has spent his whole life with his mom, Mary (Leslie Jones) and his Uncle Reem (Tracy Morgan) that adjusting to his royal status and siblings proves to be a bigger challenge than he ever anticipated.
