Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall Make Stunning Admission — Hired Louie Anderson After Forced To Cast White Actor In ‘Coming To America’

Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and shared Paramount demanded that Louie Anderson play the part of Maurice, according to Fox News.

“I love Louie, but I think we were forced to put Louie in it.”

“We were forced to put [in] a White person,” Hall said.

Murphy recalled in 1988 that Paramount was opposed to having an all-Black cast.

“They were like, ‘There has to be a White person in the movie,'” he said. “So who was the funniest White guy around? Louie, we knew him, he was was cool, so that’s how Louie got in the movie.”

Hall said that he was given “a list with three White guys” on it to choose from.

The movie will now premiere for streaming on Amazon Prime Video on Friday.
