On the strength of Get Out and Us, Jordan Peele has received a level of power and respect in Hollywood, and he plans on using it
During a talk with an improv group this week, Peele said, "The way I look at it, 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."
Peele continued, "I don’t see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie. Not that I don’t like white dudes. But I've seen that movie."
The group applauded at his statement.
