While guesting on Desus & Mero (which recently hosted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), hosts Desus Nice and the Kid Mero asked Stanfield which movie, either recently or all-time, he would most to star in. “I would have liked to walk by in Parasite,” he responded. Not a starring role, not a featured extra, just a “walk by” in the background. “That would have confused… I would be like, ‘Whoa whoa whoa. Take it back. Who is the brother?’” If there’s any movie where “that could happen,” Stanfield added, “it’s Parasite.”
Hey, there’s always the Parasite series.
Stanfield may not have been in the Best Picture winner, but hopefully he’ll get to play an Oscar-dominating character: the Joker. “What Id bring to it would have a lot to do with who I collaborate with, and how the storys written and what world we exist in, and then Ill go do my lil’ magic,” he said about getting his wish to wear the makeup. “Wouldnt it be crazy if me and the Safdies did something like that?” Yes, and also, please.
