NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — Kenan Thompson made a surprise visit to the Newport Police Department on Saturday morning.
According to a post on the Newport Police Department Facebook page, Thompson, along with Mayor Xay Khamsyvoravong stopped by during the shift change between late watch and day watch to bring officers coffee and doughnuts.
Thompson and Mayor Khamsyvoravong posed for pictures with members of the department outside of the station.
Thompson was also spotted in Cranston on Saturday. A video shared with 12 News shows the actor/comedian at a boxing match at the Park Theatre.
The Saturday Night Live veteran, along with Kel Mitchell, are in Rhode Island to film Good Burger 2.
The original movie, released in 1997, is based off of a fast food skit on the Nickelodeon comedy series “All That,” and is well known for the catchphrase “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger. Can I take your order?”
Filming has already begun in the state, as the old Friendly’s on Mineral Spring Avenue in North Providence has been transformed into the Good Burger restaurant.
Production for Good Burger 2 is expected to wrap up in June, with filming also taking place in Providence, Warwick and East Greenwich.
