Susan Kelechi Watson On Loving ‘Coming To America’: “I’m A Big Comedy Fan”

While interviewing This Is Us actress Susan Kelechi Watson, I asked her to name one of her favorite films. Check out the video below as she explains why Coming To America is a near perfect film!

Directed by John Landis, the 1988 feature has Eddie Murphy playing an African prince who travels to New York to find himself a queen (in, of course, Queens!). Arsenio Hall and Shari Headley co-star in the feature.

“(Coming To America is) something I can watch over and over again – I’m a big comedy fan,” said Susan Kelechi Watson. “As you can tell from (This Is Us)! I love something that never gets old and there’s something about when comedy is done well. You can say the same things over and over again and it’s still funny.”
