Meet The New Star: Lakeith Stanfield

The cool California-raised native 26-year-old star of the new film Sorry to Bother You has been quite a spectacle over this past year, tweeting out his phone number, wearing over the top wigs to award shows (BET 2018). He has become a well-known character in our most beloved films like Selma, Straight Outta Compton, Short Term 12, Get Out, and Donald’s Glover’s hit TV show, Atlanta.

So what’s next up for this star? He’d like to play the Joker or maybe Edward Scissorhands or a Kanye West type.
