Jordan Peele is making it known who he wants for his mysterious new film and it appears that he has already reached out to the duo for the two lead roles.
The news, coming to us from “The Illumnerdi“, says Peele would like Daniel Kaluuya, who starred in Peele’s GET OUT, and Breaking Bad’s Jesse Plemons to headline his next project. Very little is known about Peele’s next endeavor but he has offered them the lead roles in the project and new details have emerged about the main characters in the film. The characters include “an antagonist, the ‘Male Villain’ a man in his 20s or 50s” as well as “Artie” another lead, and “Winston Claes”, a supporting character. It’s speculated that Kaluuya and Plemons are being courted for the villain and Artie.
“Artie” is described as “a lead, Latinx or Native American man in his 20s to early 30s. Artie is an L.A. native and works in the electronics department of a major retail store. The character is described as genuine, insightful, and ‘clutch.'” “Winston Claes” “is a supporting character 55-70 and is open ethnicity. Winston is a Fine Art Photographer whose career-long obsession for perfection has led him to the edge of a dull and unsatisfying end to his career. He radiates succinct weather-beaten insight of a lovably gruff unwilling mentor. Winston is emotionally balanced, but his Achille’s heel is his thinly veiled ego.”
Peele directed Kaluuya to a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his turn in Get Out, which proved to be a huge hit for Peele, grossing $255 million worldwide on a $4.5 million budget. The film received three other nominations at the Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay, with Peele taking home the latter award. Jesse Plemons became known to most of us for playing the terrifyingly sociopathic Todd on the hit series Breaking Bad. The actor went on to star in such high-profile projects as Fargo, Black Mirror, Vice, Game Night, and The Irishman.
