This is a Jordan Peele appreciation post.
"I’ve been spending the first half of my career focusing on comedy, but my goal, in all honesty, is to write and direct horror movies," Jordan Peele said in 2014.
At the time, it seemed like such a bizarre move for the star of Comedy Central's hit Emmy-nominated (and later Emmy-winning) show "Key & Peele." The statement made a lot of people scratch their heads wondering just how serious he was about his new project "Get Out."
