Daniel Kaluuya Hung Out At An Ohio Costco to Research His 'Queen & Slim' Role!

Daniel Kaluuya keeps it cool as he poses for a photograph at a special screening of his anticipated film Queen & Slim presented by Universal Pictures on Tuesday night (November 12) at Soho House in New York City.

Host Stephen asked Daniel about his impression of Ohio before taking the part of Slim – a character who ends up shooting a cop in self-defense on the same night as a Tinder date with Queen (Jodie Turner-Smith) – and he detailed what he learned from a regional Costco team for the role.

“Slim works at Costco so I found the Costco that he was at… I just kinda hung out and I just spoke to the staff and they just showed me a couple hoods and areas that Slim would be from,” Daniel said after some playful back-and-forth about the correct American pronunciation of the shopping outlet. “I found that if you work at Costco on a Sunday, you earn 38 dollars an hour. So I was like, Oh, he thinks he’s a catch so he’s going into this date thinking ‘I’m a great catch.’ Like, of course you’re gonna be on Tinder. [He's a] Sunday Costco guy! It really helped me helm in his mentality for the scene.”
