'Get Out' Star Daniel Kaluuya: 'It Was Surreal That Jordan Peele Knew Who I Was'

During their “Actors on Actors” chat, Daniel Kaluuya revealed to “Call Me By Your Name” star Timothee Chalamet that he was a big fan of “Key & Peele” before he starred in “Get Out,” and he could hardly believe that director Jordan Peele even knew who he was.

“I’d be with my friends, yeah? And we’d watch a film together,” Kaluuya said. “And then we’d go, ‘Let’s go on YouTube, just watch “Key & Peele.”‘ Just constantly ‘Key & Peele.’ That’s what was so surreal. It was more surreal that Jordan Peele knew who I was. That blew my mind.”

The seventh season of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Google Home, will air from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal KOCE.
