Who could forget this guy’s performance in Black Panther? Sterling K. Brown is killing everything he touches. He now intends to move forward into writing and directing his own projects as well.
“The opportunity to produce, to direct—there’s something very exciting about that potentiality,” Brown says. “It scares the bejesus out of me because I’ve been acting for so long and I feel like I know that relatively well. But life is all about expanding and about growing and about evolving, and so if I don’t take advantage of these opportunities, then I’m standing still, and I don’t want to be that person.”
He’s also set to host Saturday Night Live for the first time March 10. “People think of me as the dude that makes people cry. And I really don’t; in real life, people laugh around me way more than they cry,” Brown says.
