By: AWJ Platinum PR
John Amos is best known for his starring role as James Evans on the hit CBS Series, "Good Times", along with starring roles in the Emmy Winning "The West Wing", "All About the Andersons", and film classics like "Coming to America" and "Die Hard II". In addition to his stellar acting career, Amos was signed as a free agent in the NFL for a brief stint with the Kansas City Chiefs, a time during which he was inspired to write the beginning of his original project, "The Turk".
When asked about his thoughts on "Coming 2 America", John Amos shared: "It is very rare that you have an opportunity to work with an actor of Eddie Murphy's stature… not just a stature in the industry, but his talent as an actor to transform from one character to another seamlessly. I don't think people really appreciate or understand the talent that is required to make these seamless transitions as Eddie does between comedy and drama and the myriad of characters he has portrayed in various films. It is truly an experience to work with Eddie, and I am so glad I got to establish a character, Cleo McDowell, that seems to have been taken from my own life as a McDonald's employee. It's been a wonderful opportunity to work with Eddie in 'Coming 2 America'."
The news of the upcoming film release follows the recent success of a viral TikTok video featuring John Amos and his son K. C. Amos singing "Lovely Day" by Bill Withers. K.C. Amos is a Grammy-nominated music video producer and director. Amos has produced music videos with a list of top star clientele including Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and Macy Gray. The TikTok video continues to surge in its current upwards momentum.
Regarding the TikTok video, K.C. Amos shared, "The TikToker who inspired me to create this video is @420Doggface208. Everybody knows him as Doggface. This is amazing experience to see our video surge on Tik Tok. The story tellers mission is to shed light. If I can be a small part of someone being happy and feeling good, then I am the happiest man on earth. And to see my Pops (John Amos) get a kick out it, it just doesn't get any better."
In addition, John Amos recently completed production,"
"Coming 2 America" will make its global debut on Amazon Prime in March 2021.
Prior to the film launch, John Amos is set to host a "Good Times" Pay Per View event on January 30, 2021 with special celebrity guests. Get your tickets at this link:
