Kiki Layne Dishes on Coming to America Sequel on Late Night

Kiki Layne Revealed She's Going to "Kick a Little Ass" in the Coming to America Sequel

As we patiently await the long-anticipated release of Eddie Murphy's Coming to America sequel, Kiki Layne — who is set to star alongside Murphy in the film — is sharing a few details about the film that have us wanting more ASAP. During an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday night, The Old Guard star teased that her character will "kick a little ass," and we are so ready to see it happen.

Layne also revealed that she first saw the film when she was about 9 years old and has been a huge fan ever since, making the experience of taking part in the sequel truly special for her. "It's such a classic and these are all people that love that first film, love working together," she said. "And so, you know, to be able to witness this family reunion of sorts, and then to be invited to be part of that family, it's special, it's so special."

Coming 2 America will be released on Dec. 18, and will star some of the original cast, including Arsenio Hall and James Earl Jones. If Layne's character is anything to go by, we strongly suspect this movie is going to kick ass.
