‘Us‘ Director Jordan Peele: I Don‘t Want a ‘White Dude As the Lead in My Movie‘

Thanks for the heads up but your bow tie is cultural appropriation.

Get Out director Jordan Peele said that he doesn’t see himself casting any white men as a lead actor in his films during a panel appearance Monday at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles.

I get to cast black people in my movies. I feel fortunate to be in this position where I can say to Universal, ‘I want to make a $20 million horror movie with a black family.’ And they say yes,” Jordan Peele said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
