Daniel Kaluuya Responds to Samuel L. Jackson's Criticism of 'Get Out' Casting

Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya is responding to Samuel L. Jackson‘s criticism that the film, which has earned tons of praise from critics and fans alike, about British actors as African-Americans.

Samuel said in a recent interview, “I tend to wonder what that movie [Get Out] would have been with an American brother who really understands that.”

Daniel told GQ, “Big up Samuel L. Jackson, because here’s a guy who has broken down doors. He has done a lot so that we can do what we can do.”

“Here’s the thing about that critique, though. I’m dark-skinned, bro. When I’m around black people I’m made to feel “other” because I’m dark-skinned. I’ve had to wrestle with that, with people going “You’re too black.” Then I come to America and they say, “You’re not black enough.” I go to Uganda, I can’t speak the language. In India, I’m black. In the black community, I’m dark-skinned. In America, I’m British. Bro!,” Daniel continued.

Samuel L. Jackson Criticizes Casting British Actors as African-Americans

Samuel L. Jackson is not happy that British actors have been portraying African-Americans in films.

The 68-year-old actor brought up the issue after British actor Daniel Kaluuya was cast to play an American in Get Out.

“There are a lot of black British actors in these movies. I tend to wonder what that movie [Get Out] would have been with an American brother who really understands that,” Samuel said while talking with Hot 97.

He added, “Daniel grew up in a country where they’ve been interracial dating for a hundred years. What would a brother from America have made of that role? Some things are universal, but everything ain’t.”

Get Out‘s director Jordan Peele recently spoke out on the issue, saying that he initially didn’t want to cast a British actor because the movie “was so much about representation of the African-American experience,” but knew Daniel was the right choice.

Samuel also cited several other movies with the same problem, like British actor David Oyelowo getting cast to play Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma.

Brie Larson Recalls the Marvel Actors' Reactions to Her 'Captain Marvel' Casting Reveal

Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, and Samuel L. Jackson pose for photos at SiriusXM studios for their movie Kong: Skull Island on Monday (March 6) in New York City.

The trio star in the film, in theaters this Friday!

Recently, Brie spoke with Uproxx about her being announced as Captain Marvel and how it was such a huge moment that no one knew about.

“You know, to be honest, I just plead ignorance in those cases because I see announcements for people playing characters all the time and I just don’t really think about ‘what the world’s reaction is.’ I didn’t even have social media until recently. So it wasn’t until I was backstage in Hall H, and it was like, all of those actors from all the movies were there. And I was super starstruck and talking with all of them. And then all of them were like, ‘Why are you here? Are you in the panel next, after us?’ I was like, ‘Oh, no, I’m going to be part of this now.’ And they were like, ‘What?’ No one knew,” Brie said.
