14 April 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Riding high after the successful sequel Beverly Hills Cop II, Eddie Murphy returned to pure comedy, reteaming with director John Landis (Trading Places) to make Coming to America. Murphy played a pampered African prince who decides to travel to America to find a bride. Released in the summer of 1988, it was an instant smash, spending three weeks as the top-earning movie at the box office. Ultimately, it made more than $288 million worldwide. What made the comedy so funny? For one thing, Murphy was teamed up with Arsenio Hall as his best friend and personal aide; both actors played multiple roles. They were surrounded by a wonderful cast that included James Earl Jones, Madge Sinclair and John Amos. Cuba Gooding Jr. made his big-screen debut and Samuel L. Jackson stood out...

Coming to America 2 Brings Back Original Writers

13 April 2017 3:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, a new report surfaced that comedy legend Eddie Murphy has been secretly writing the screenplay for Coming to America 2, a follow-up to his 1988 classic which he both starred in and received a story credit for. The news regarding this sequel was never confirmed, but first surfaced after Eddie Murphy's verified Twitter account sent out a tweet about a Coming to America sequel, which lead to the actor's entire account being deleted. Today we have confirmation that the sequel is actually happening, with original Coming to America writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield writing the script.

The news first surfaced after Eddie Murphy's Twitter account posted a cryptic tweet that only read, "Coming to America sequel?" along with a photo of the Princess Imani character played by Vanessa Bell Calloway. After the actor's account was deleted, a report surfaced that claimed Coming to America 2 is in fact in the works, »

Cuba Gooding Jr Says Sarah Paulson Skirt-Lift Was ‘Misinterpreted on a Sexual Level’ (Video)

7 April 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If he lifted the skirt, was he being a flirt? Cuba Gooding Jr. is attempting to acquit himself, after drawing criticism for lifting his “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” co-star Sarah Paulson’s skirt during a Paleyfest panel, telling Extra that the moment was “misinterpreted on a sexual level.” Saying that he and Paulson have “a very playful banter,” Gooding — who played O.J.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Responds to Sarah Paulson Skirt-Lifting Controversy, Says Event Was ‘Taken Out of Context’

7 April 2017 8:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Late last month, the stars of “American Horror Story: Roanoke” turned out in force for a PaleyFest panel to chat about the ever-popular FX anthology series and what’s in the cards for future seasons. It’s the kind of setting that should be easy and fun, but star Cuba Gooding Jr. took things in a decidedly uncomfortable (and, frankly, bizarre) direction when he lifted up the skirt of his co-star Sarah Paulson in front of a packed house.

As Paulson jumped out of her seat — incidentally, next to Gooding, who she also worked with on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” — to greet Kathy Bates, Gooding leaned forward and lifted up the back of her purple gown.

FX Networks’ upfront gathering in New York on Thursday night was short on ad sales pitches and long on pitchers — of Guinness, Sam Adams, Corona et al — as stars turned out to bowl and banter with media buyers.

The company’s typically off-kilter event was held at Lucky Strike Manhattan. It followed a screening at the Sva Theater of the premiere of “Fargo’s” third season, which bows April 19.

Ewan McGregor, who toplines this season of “Fargo,” showed some flair with his bowling technique. The casts of “The Americans,” “You’re the Worst” and “Archer” were among those who were out in force in bowling shoes. Chris Geere of “You’re the Worst” gleefully ran over to take a selfie with McGregor, a fellow U.K-er. Darren Criss was all smiles as he made the rounds and talked of his preparations to play the killer in “American Crime Story: Versace,” which »
