Michael Blackson is chilling on cloud 9 — in an actual cozy gown too — as a result of Eddie Murphy, one in all his childhood icons, is curious about placing him within the “Coming to America” sequel.
Michael joined us Wednesday on “TMZ Live” to speak concerning the massive information Eddie broke to us … that he’s contemplating casting Blackson as a result of he’s African — straight outta Ghana — and since he’s humorous.
MB says simply having Eddie point out him as a possible actor within the film is a dream come true. Having a legendary comic publicly voice his approval is one other large feather in Michael’s cap, and you may see the thrill he’s feeling
However, there’s yet another vital factor Blackson’s ready to see occur.
As … Eddie dropped Michael’s title unsolicited once we requested him if he was open to casting actual African actors for the film, an thought Akon first talked about to us.
Michael’s seen the clip of Eddie, and tells us it might be an unbelievable coincidence if he lands the function … particularly after his childhood experiences with the OG “Coming to America.”
It’s kinda humorous … Michael tells us why Eddie’s character precipitated issues for him when he was rising up in New Jersey, and he’s received an thought for a way they’ll even the rating.
Michael even says he would flip round from the gates of heaven to do that film … so c’mon Eddie, what are you ready for?!?
