Daniel Kaluuya is taking Hollywood by cyclone. His performance in the fright reached’ Get Out’ earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, and his appearance in’ Black Panther’ is earning rave reviews. We sat down with the talented young actor to ask him a few questions about his life and job.
1. Do you prefer doing movie or stage operate?
I desire both, but I opt being interviewed on the local news about gas costs. Devoting my two pennies on the fluctuating costs of oil is as good as it gets.
2. You operate a lot in fright and superhero films. Were you a fan of these genres growing up?
The only film genre I was a fan of growing up was werewolf movies where the werewolf get cured of being a werewolf in the first scene and then expends the rest of the cinema apologizing to all of the livestock they bit. It’s a genre called “apologizing werewolf” that was very popular in Thailand in the 1930 s. I don’t speak Thai, but they’re pretty easy to follow, as the only lines of dialogue are things like, “I’m no longer a werewolf, ” and “I’m sorry I bit you, cow, ” and, “How are you, sheep? I won’t bite you again, because I am no longer a wolf-man.” “Thats still” the only type of movie I like, which is why I’m not particularly fond of Get Out or Black Panther .
3. Do you have any desire to work behind the camera as a writer or director?
My real dream is to work inside the camera as the tiny boy who operates all of the gears and lenses that build the camera run. I recognized one of these men fall out of a camera while filming Black Panther , and he was incredible. He was naked, totally shaved, and lubricated so he didn’t get snagged in the camera’s gears, and he was covered in ignites from working in the area of such a hot context. I have no idea how he got so small-scale, but I hope they can find a way to do that to me so I can go in a camera someday.
4. Get Out was your first lead role in a major motion picture. Did the fact that both of you and first-time administrator Jordan Peele is really very fresh to this type of thing affect the project in any way?
Since I was kind of new to Hollywood, I didn’t really know what you’re required to do to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I’m still not entirely sure, but I’ve been eating a lot of cicadas in cases where feeing 1,000 cicadas is the way you get your epithet on the Walk of Fame.
5. What’s a role you haven’t played yet but urgently want to try?
I’ve always thought a really beautiful story would be a skeleton who climbs out of an old man’s torso at night to go and dance at a club like they’re young again. As relevant actors, the skeleton’s the more interesting character to portray, but on the other hand, the old man gets to lie down the whole day, so I’d be equally happy in either part.
