The very talented Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s hit sketch “Key & Peele” is popular among laugh fans, but has changed directions in his film directorial debut which happens to be horror.  The movie entitled “Get Out” stars Allison Williams and Daniel Kaluuya. 

The movie focuses of a Black man who meets his white girlfriend’s family for the first time in a suburban setting, when things turn out to be not what it appears. 

I’m not a fan of many of the sketch pieces popularized by the comedic duo, this horror film might be worth watching.  Here is a look.

In a recent interview the actor who portrayed the wizard Harry Potter said, he still has most of the $100 million he made from the role.  The 27-year-old said, "I don't really do anything with my money," he continued, "I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom career-wise."

While the actor stopped short of saying he would not play the role of the lovable wizard again, he said he prefers to play characters that interest him in an artistic way.   

He proclaimed his love for his job and said he would like to do it until he dies – not only to death but he said that he would like die on the set.  What a commitment.

Expect Danny Brown to be the toast of 2016.
