Snipes Joins ‘Coming 2 America’

We may have lost Wesley Snipes from the Blade franchise (sorry but this means I’ll pay about as much attention to the new Blade as the TV series), but it looks like the actor has joined Eddie Murphy comedy sequel Coming 2 America.

The original starred Murphy as charming Prince Akeem of Zamunda who travelled to New York City to escape an arranged marriage, only to fall in love. Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, and John Amos co-starred.

In the new film, Akeem is about to become king when he discovers he has a long-lost son in Queens and sets off to find him. Snipes will play a new character named General Izzi, who rules a neighboring country to Zamunda.

Of course Snipes is a funny man when given the chance.  As for that new Blade guy… this is pretty much obligatory…
