"White People Say Weird Things:" Daniel Kaluuya Talks 'Get Out' With Stephen Colbert

The British-Ugandan actor made his first late night appearance last week on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert."

Daniel Kaluuya made his late night debut last week on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he discussed the cultural impact of "Get Out," particularly the response from white viewers.

He spoke about the universal appeal of 'Get Out' for black folks around the globe. "White people say really weird stuff to you," said the actor.

"[Jordan Peele] was saying a joke about 'oh I would have voted for Obama three times. The new version of that is "oh I've seen 'Get Out' three times," says the actor when asked about some of the odd reactions he's gotten to the film from white folks. "It's like people think, oh I'm so down," he continued.

The two exchange jokes back and forth, and Colbert goes on to ask Kaluuya what 'his most Hollywood moment" was. Hint: taking a picture with Queen Oprah, who he was introduced to by Denzel Washington. We'd say that one's pretty hard to top.

Daniel Kaluuya will appear in Marvel's Black Panther next month. He's also been nominated for the 2018 BAFTA Rising Star Award.

Check him out on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert below.
