Jordan Peele's latest movie, Us, hit movie theaters just last week, and it has already broken a box office record.
In the middle of the movie's press tour, Peele visited a group of improv students to talk about his rise to success.
It was important to him because he, too, started out as an improv actor. He started acting, pushing through his initial shyness, as a fifth grader and, later, he turned down NYU to pursue Sketch Comedy Studies.
As talented as he is, Peele's career had a lot of ups and downs. He didn't achieve his dream of joining SNL, but this led him to Get Out, the movie that earned him fame, and even an Oscar.
But Peele doesn't care about fame. The most important thing for him is being able to achieve representation for black people in his movies. And he's going to keep doing just that.
