Winston Duke Got A 'Dad Bod' for His Jordan Peele Horror 'Us'!

Winston Duke stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday (March 19) and opened up about the preparation that went into playing two roles in Jordan Peele‘s Get Out follow-up horror, Us!

The 32-year-old actor revealed that he had to switch up his physicality so that his Us characters would not resemble his Black Panther character, M’Baku.

“He and I talked about essentially not feeling like M’Baku is in this movie. Because the family really couldn’t be in danger if M’Baku was around,” Winston explained. “So you know, we talked about changing my body and changing my physicality and we came up with, you know, let’s do a dad bod.”

“Let’s really lean into this comfortable guy who’s this all-American dad, working for the weekend, weekend warrior kind of guy,” Winston continued. “So that’s kind of what happened, and then the glasses happened, and before I knew it, I guess I was Jordan Peele.”

“So basically he said M’Baku would be too intimidating and you said, ‘Okay I’ll be you,” Seth joked.
