Lakeith Stanfield Seven Times

I'm officially, as of today, past the point where I'll ever ask, "Wait, what do I know Lakeith Stanfield again?" Really I never should've forgotten what I knew Lakeith Stanfield from after he turned in that blistering performance opposite Brie Larson in Short Term 12, but my brain's riddled with holes so I needed more. Get Out really should've been enough. 

But it took him being the only unpredictably interesting thing in War Machine (David Michod's movie with Brad Pitt that I reviewed right here) to seal the deal and finally get me to look him up properly. Oh and this photo-shoot he did - wearing plaid pants, holla! - for Esquire, too. Hit the jump for the rest...

He's really good in Atlanta too!

What a way to brighten up my dreadfully dull day! He always makes an impression on me, even in tiny roles like his Snoop Dogg in "Straight Outta Compton". He's so good in "Selma" and "Miles Ahead", not to mention "Short Term 12". Those eyes are so damn expressive; he can sell an entire character with just one look. Can't wait for what comes next!
