Complex Catches Up With Lakeith Stanfield
When asked about the upcoming season of Donald Glover’s hit show Atlanta, Stanfield said, “I’m sure the current events going on will influence the writers to put something in there…I’m looking forward. I think they’ve written it, but I haven’t seen anything yet, but I’ve been hearing some interesting things…Believe me, they’re paying attention, and they’re very good at being detail-oriented in that way. They’re licked thumb out into the wind and feeling where things are going and into the universe that is Atlanta.”
Lakeith also talked about how the “Moonlight” video came about and on whether he’s seen the actual show the video is parodying, Friends. He said after he reached out to his team,Jay called him. “He called me, personally on the phone, and appealed to me about this project. I had heard the song and I thought “Moonlight” was a great idea, and I thought it could be cool to put visuals to it in the way they wanted to. So, I did, and it was fun.”
About the actual show Friends and if he’s ever seen it, Stanfield simply said, “No, I’ve never seen the show, but I heard it’s very white.”
How right your are, sir. How right you are.
